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 (Land), MEngTech and BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
This programme is the first to be launched under Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (SIE). SIE is multi-disciplinary as it synthesizes the essence of several fundamental engineering disciplines. Students will go through a vigorous academic training provided by highly qualified professors while immersing themselves in the land transport industry through work stints with established organisations such as LTA, SMRT, SBS, Keppel Group and Singapore Technologies.

One major highlight will be the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), in which students will be involved in day-to-day operations and confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Students will also have the option to undertake Non-Destructive Testing Level II or III (NDT) certification, (ISO 9712, in collaboration with the Non-Destructive Testing Society of Singapore) so as to enhance their industry-readiness.

The Programme’s Mission Statement
Vision: To be the leading programme for the land transport industry in Singapore.

(Singapore Institute of Technology - Engineering)
Mission: To nurture individuals to achieve excellence in the ever changing world of land transport industry.

The Programme Educational Objectives
The Master of Engineering Technology Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) are closely aligned with the SIT DNA.

Graduates of the Master of Engineering Technology (SIE) programme, after working 3 to 5 years, are expected to be able to:

  1. Think and innovatively solve real-world problems in land transport industry using high level technical skills and knowledge.
  2. Embrace change for sustainable operation of land transport infrastructure based on analytical and problem solving skills enhanced through lifelong professional development.
  3. Generate innovative growth pathways for the land transport industry through strong grounding at the process and system levels.
  4. Make impactful advancement and improvement in land transport services both locally and internationally, taking account of professional, social, economic and environmental aspects.

Curriculum

The SIE programme aims to groom students to be both practice-oriented and industry ready. Throughout the course of the programme, students will be given the opportunity to take modules such as Total Preventive Maintenance and focus on Railway Engineering, which is not offered by other local undergraduate programmes. Furthermore, the one-year Integrated Work-Study Programme (IWSP) will help to bridge the gap between academic training and industrial needs.

Students will also take on a Capstone project formulated on actual working experience during the IWSP. This project may focus on improvement to work processes in the company or design of parts and components that add value to the company. In addition, our unique curriculum design allows students to achieve the professional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Level II or III certification

The programme will be conducted in 3 trimesters per academic year (˜ 4 months per trimester). To be awarded BEng (Hons) Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land), students are required to complete 6 trimesters of study and a minimum of 2 trimesters of Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP). To be awarded Master of Engineering Technology, students are required to complete 8 trimesters of study and a minimum of 2 trimesters of Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP).

Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering programme may proceed to take the Masters of Engineering Technology degree, provided they meet the necessary requirements. Student pursuing the Masters of Engineering Technology degree will need to complete the following in Year 4

Year 4, Trimester 1: Two subjects from each Focus Area of Interest
Year 4, Trimester 2: One subject from each Focus Area of Interest.

For more details on the subject available in each Focus Area of Interest, please refer to programme modules.

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

Career Opportunities
The SIE’s unique programme and curriculum have been crafted with support from various organisations within the land transport industry such as LTA, SMRT, SBS, Singapore Technologies, Keppel Group and Sembcorp Industries. Students will therefore gain the necessary knowledge and skills for an enriching career in the industry.
