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’.
 
Offshore Engineering, BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
The Marine programmes, jointly offered by SIT and Newcastle University, are three-year direct honours degrees in various disciplines within marine technology. Well-grounded with fundamentals in marine and offshore technology, students will hone their critical and analytical skills to be practice -oriented and industry-ready in either one of these specialisations – Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering.

Students will go through rigorous academic training and immerse themselves in the marine industry through the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) with leading marine and offshore engineering organisations such as Keppel O&M Ltd, Sembcorp Marine Ltd, Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd and Wärtsilä Singapore Pte Ltd.

Students will be able to take up modules which are exclusive to these joint degree programmes such as marine classifications, which cover the rules and regulations applied during the design, production and maintenance phases of marine platforms. Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering students will learn about the engineering behind the design, structure, operation and management of ships and other large floating structures. Marine Engineering students will be exposed to marine engineering systems, from the main propulsion engines to auxiliary machinery like power generators, pumps, heat exchangers and other machineries within water, air and hydraulic systems.

Programme Highlights

  • Unique And Applied Learning Curricula

The Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering curricula are designed not only to meet the manpower needs of local industries, but also to manifest Singapore’s role as a global marine and offshore engineering centre through SIT’s applied learning emphasis, enabling our graduates to be both practice-oriented and industry-ready.

  • Extensive Industry Involvement

These programmes include a high level of industry involvement to impart the latest industry best practices and regulatory requirements to students. This community of students, industry leaders and practitioners, professional bodies and dedicated academics brings about a symbiotic relationship beyond the academic level, allowing students to create a network of invaluable contacts within the industry.

  • Holistic Marine Graduates

Designed with a strong embellishment of the SIT-DNA, the programmes aim to produce socially responsible graduates who understand the environmental impacts within and across various engineering disciplines.
