The programme equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a successful engineering degree. The programme emphasises learning by doing, and students are regularly required to immerse themselves in hands-on learning activities such as case studies and real-life projects.

Students are exposed to an innovative and technologically-driven programme that employs digital tools to enhance teaching and learning.

Upon completion, students will develop core competencies in the field of Engineering, which gives them a head-start to becoming sought-after future engineers who are able to positively impact the world around them.

Strong Engineering Focus

  • Exposure to the fundamental understanding of the engineering industry with subjects like Engineering, Civilisation & Future of Mankind and Engineering Design & Innovation.

Revolutionary Learning using iPad

  • Students will use iPads to access the latest learning tools such as iBooks and electronic study materials that have been specially developed by the School.

From Theory to Application

  • Students are exposed to cutting-edge knowledge and relevant industry concepts as the programme is led and delivered by Chartered and Professional Engineers.
  • Cognitive skills are taught through project-based learning, which constitutes a hands-on approach that is effective and interactive.
  • Introduction to CDIO™ framework that stresses on the whole product life cycle.

Balanced Learning Environment

  • Opportunity to acquire and demonstrate disciplinespecific knowledge, cognitive capabilities and soft skills.
  • A balanced assessment method, whereby 50% of the evaluation is allocated to various continuous assessments such as quizzes, class tests, projects, oral presentations and laboratory practical reports while the remaining 50% to the final exam.

Conducive Learning Environment
