.The Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE) helps you launch a rewarding career by giving you the core skills needed to open doors to a host of opportunities.
In this programme, you will receive a broad, flexible education in key growth areas such as digital media and communications, biomedical electronics, and microelectronics. Expect plenty of hands-on training in our cutting-edge laboratories as you hone your technical skills.
Our strong partnerships with associations and companies provide opportunities to participate in internships and R&D projects and ensure that what you learn is highly relevant to industry requirements. This valuable real-world experience will help you transform into a skilled, versatile engineer valued by industry leaders such as SingTel, Micron, Philips, and Panasonic.
Digital Media and Communications
Recent massive growth in mobile computing and communication has lead to the increased demand in the smartphones, tablets and increased need for faster mobile communication technology.
This specialisation provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge in the areas of digital audio & video coding, communications & transmission techniques and in mobile computing platforms. The specialisation will focus on the integrated use of electronic, electrical and computer technologies in smart and interactive devices.
Biomedical and healthcare is a fast-growing industry in Singapore. With Economic Development Board’s “Industry 21” initiative, demand for talents in hospitals, laboratories, healthcare centres and other biomedical facilities are expected to increase. This specialisation provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge in the areas of sensors and instrument systems in biomedicine, imaging techniques and signal processing.
The semiconductor industry is a significant contributor to Singapore's electronics output and is one of the largest employers in Singapore. Recent advancement in Thin Film Technology (TFT) has created new and exciting opportunities in many industries such as optical coatings, displays and information storage.
This specialisation provides you with the necessary practical skills and knowledge in the wafer fabrication processes behind the Integrated Circuit (IC); understanding how TFT is applied to real life applications like solar cell and LED; identifying the causes of failures of Integrated Circuit (IC) through the use of state-of-the-art equipment; and discovering the limitless possibilities of nanotechnology.
As part of the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) process, DEEE students will be tasked to solve problems which are endorsed by relevant companies. This will advantage the students with a peek into the issues they will eventually encounter in their future workplace.
For communications related modules, endorsements are obtained from Network Service Providers and Network Solutions Providers, etc.
For biomedical electronics related modules, endorsements from Hospitals, Medical Equipment Manufacturers, Medical Imaging Companies, etc.
For semi-conductor related modules, endorsements from Wafer Foundries, IC Packaging Companies, Research Institutes, etc.
Almost all modules in DEEE come with compulsory mini-projects which will better integrate the theoretical knowledge and practical skills into meaningful deliverables. On top of this, students will also get to do a bigger-scale Final Year Project (FYP) in their 3rd year.
Examples of interesting mini-projects include:
Apart from state-of-the-art equipment and software available in DEEE training labs (eg. semiconductor cleanroom for wafer processing and testing), DEEE students will get to learn ‘direct from industry’ through industry joint labs which have been set up for students to acquire highly industry relevant skillsets.
Industry-linked Final Year Projects (FYPs) and
Technology Development Projects (TDCs) are also carried out in these joint labs.
Browse through internship job postings; apply for internship position; be interviewed; get accepted; undergo company-specific pre-training. These are the unique value-adds of DEEE internship programme that aims to equip students with both real-life technical working experience as well as real-life soft skills in job securing.
Internship companies include:
Higher Year DEEE students can apply for bond-free RP scholarships. In addition, DEEE scholars will partake in a joint talent grooming programme with the sponsoring companies. The scholars will be involved in networking events/seminars organised by the company and they will also have their internship in the same company.
Companies partnering DEEE in talent grooming include:
DEEE graduates embark on careers in a wide range of industries, from aerospace and digital media to robotics, biomedical manufacturing, and telecommunications. You will be well prepared for roles such as:
Graduates can also choose to pursue further education in local or overseas universities. The diploma programme is designed to meet the requirements for advanced standing in local (eg. NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD, SIT, SIM) and overseas Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs).
