Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (R50)

What You Will Learn

Are you into technology? Charge up your career choices with electronics engineering disciplines for the digital age.

The Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (DEEE) will set you on the path for a rewarding career in electrical engineering.

You will have the opportunity to experiment and develop your technical skills in our state-of-the-art laboratories, combined with a broad and flexible education across key growth areas such as communications, aerospace electronics and microelectronics.

Our strong partnerships with established associations and companies will provide you with highly competitive spots in market-relevant engineering industry attachment and R&D projects. Learning beyond the classroom, you will experience the challenges that these companies face on a regular basis and help to provide the solutions for real-world problems. This valuable experience will transform you into a passionate, skilled, and highly-versatile problem-solver – all traits that are highly coveted by industry leaders such as Panasonic, Philips, Micron Semiconductor Asia, Singtel, and Thales Solutions Asia.

The DEEE programme’s value lies in enhancing its graduates’ versatility and readiness to work in varied sectors of the electrical and electronics industry. I believe DEEE graduates are the ‘new-age’ engineers that companies like Philips are looking out for.
