Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s university of applied learning. SIT's vision is to be a leader in innovative learning by integrating learning, industry and community. Its mission is to nurture and develop individuals who build on their interests and talents to impact society in meaningful ways.

SIT offers applied degree programmes targeted at growth sectors of the economy with a unique pedagogy that integrates work and study. SIT’s degree programmes feature an eight to 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which exemplifies the best of university-industry collaboration.

Since its establishment in 2009, SIT has grown from its inaugural batch of 500 students in 10 degree programmes to over 5,000 students in 44 degree programmes from across SIT and 10 overseas university partners. These degree programmes are grouped into five clusters – Engineering (ENG), Chemical Engineering and Food Technology (CEFT), Infocomm Technology (ICT), Health and Social Sciences (HSS), as well as Design and Specialised Businesses (DSB).

SIT also aims to cultivate in its students four distinctive traits, or the SIT-DNA, which will prepare them to be ‘thinking tinkerers’, who are ‘able to learn, unlearn and relearn’, be ‘catalysts for transformation’ and finally, become ‘grounded in the community’.
Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Building Services), MEngTech and BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
The Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (SIE) (Building Services) programme is developed in consultation with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Singapore. The programme encompasses all the necessary engineering disciplines that are required for the building services industries in Singapore. Students will go through rigorous academic training that is conducted by highly qualified professors and senior managers from the industry, and will read modules which are highly relevant to the building services industries.

The SIE (Building Services) programme aims to groom students to be both practice-oriented and industry-ready. Students will be trained in the areas of Efficient Energy Management, Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

One major highlight of the programme is the eight-to 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which will equip students with the practical training much desired by employers. During the IWSP, students will be involved in the day-to-day operations and will confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) programme may proceed to take the Master of Engineering Technology degree (MEngTech) which will have a strong emphasis on human factors, systems engineering and project management.

Students who opt for the MEngTech will also take on a Capstone project formulated on actual working experience during the IWSP. The project may revolve around innovative solutions to existing processes. In line with the government’s initiatives on clean energy and safety at the workplace, students may also be able to obtain professional certifications in Green Mark Certification, Fire Services Safety Management and Workplace Safety and Health.

Accreditation of the programme will be sought with the Engineering Accreditation Board.

Career Opportunities
Statistics from government agencies and employment trends point to a great demand for graduates trained in building services focusing on green buildings, HVAC and BIM. SIE (Building Services) graduates, well-equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills, will assimilate with ease into the building construction and services industries.
