More than 30 per cent Singapore’s electricity is consumed by buildings. Singapore is now targeting to certify at least 80 per cent of its buildings with a ‘Green Mark’ by 2030.
In addition, many commercial building must now undergo energy audits to reduce their consumption. As a result, the green building sector is set for dramatic growth.
The Diploma in Green Building Energy Management (DGEM) will prepare you for a career in this exciting and fast-developing area. You will acquire in-depth knowledge of how energy efficiency can be applied in the design of buildings and industrial processes. You will also receive hands-on training in energy auditing, using specialised equipment in laboratories set up jointly with leading companies. Our cutting-edge Outdoor Lab has a grid-tie photovoltaic solar system.
Internships and projects will allow you to apply your skills to real-world problems. This valuable experience will help you get your foot in the door at prestigious companies and institutions.
DGEM graduates are ready to take on various green collar engineering positions across the green building, energy audit and renewable energy sectors and beyond. You will be well placed to take on roles such as:
Graduates can also choose to pursue further education in local or overseas universities. All our diploma programmes are designed to meet the requirements for advanced standing in local and overseas Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs).
