School of Engineering, Diploma in Industrial & Operations Management(R11)_DIOM

What You Will Learn

For a business to prosper, it must operate as efficiently as possible. With the Diploma in Industrial & Operations Management (DIOM), you will be prepared to troubleshoot complex problems that are faced by businesses all over the world.

As a DIOM student, you will acquire the expertise to oversee, design and improve companies’ business operations and resource management by developing integrated solutions across multiple industries. You will be in a prime position to help companies address industry challenges such as declining productivity and an ageing workforce.

You will be trained in our ErgoSCAPE Laboratory, the first of its kind in Singapore. This is where you will gain unrivalled experience in fields such as ergonomics, workplace safety and workplace design, learning essential technical skills in the use of specialised software. You will also ‘learn through play’ and experience practical hands-on sessions in a replicated industry environment.

Through our strong industry collaborations with established organisations such as PSA International and Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, you can further hone your practical skills through internship and project work where you will develop innovative solutions to tackle real-life operational challenges. This real-world exposure will help to kick-start your career upon graduation.

The port of the future will feature more automated and intelligent systems. RP’s DIOM syllabus equips students with relevant knowledge and skills such as operations management, critical thinking and innovative problem-solving, which will enable them to work effectively in the dynamic port environment. We look forward to partnering RP to prepare students for exciting and fulfilling careers in port management and operations.
