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’.
Civil Engineering, MEngTech and BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
The Bachelor of Civil Engineering Honours degree programme is jointly offered by SIT and the University of Glasgow (UofG). This programme will play an important role in addressing the lack of local graduate manpower with the necessary civil engineering professional qualifications for the building and construction industry in the face of sustained building and infrastructure development.

Through a heavy emphasis on project-based learning and industrial immersion, this programme aims to produce industry-ready graduates who are equipped with a high level of technical expertise to address multidisciplinary challenges, provide technically sound, economically feasible and sustainable solutions to complex problems.

Upon successful completion of their BEng (Hons), students may continue with the Master of Engineering Technology in Civil Engineering graduate degree that will qualify them to apply to sit for the professional examination, conducted by the Professional Engineers Board of Singapore. They may take the exam immediately, or finish the BEng (Hons) first and gain some relevant working experience before coming back to pursue the MEngTech degree later. In this way, they can study at a pace that best suits their individual needs and abilities. Strong emphasis is placed on the industrial relevance in the curriculum development of BEng (Hons) and MEngTech programmes in consultation with government agencies and companies from the construction sector.

Students will acquire deep specialist training at the MEngTech level which consists of five compulsory core modules and five selected modules taught at an advanced graduate level depending on the area of specialisation in Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering or Rail Engineering.
