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’.
 
Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems), BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems), also known as SEEMS, is a multidisciplinary degree programme that brings together the fields of mechanical, electrical, electronic, and computer engineering with a holistic approach to system development. Systems engineering focuses on the design, development, implementation, and life-cycle management of complex interconnected systems. The SEEMS programme specifically focuses on the engineering of complex mechanical systems that are controlled by microprocessors and microcontrollers.

Students of this programme will understand the larger context of hardware and software engineering, and will be able to solve complex problems through an integrated and multidisciplinary approach.

SEEMS is a joint degree programme offered by Singapore Institute of Technology and DigiPen Institute of Technology.

Curriculum

Traditional approaches to engineering education focus individually on the different sub-disciplines of mechanical, electrical, electronic or computer engineering. Systems engineering transcends these boundaries and looks at integrating systems from diverse disciplines to produce functionality not achieved by a single discipline. Systems engineering enables the development, analysis and management of multidisciplinary systems with a broad range of applications. Its methodologies address real-world complexities such as uncertainty, constraints, multiple objectives, and interactions among various parts or subsystems that constitute the whole. Trained systems engineers use sophisticated methods to develop and effectively manage engineered systems in today’s complex and interconnected world.

Career Opportunities
Career opportunities in systems engineering are driven by increasing globalisation and technological advancements. As Singapore and the world continue to develop more interconnected devices and systems, the need for engineers with both component- and system-level knowledge will increase dramatically.

SEEMS graduates will be uniquely prepared to address these increasingly complex system design and development tasks. Potential entry-level position titles for new SEEMS graduates include: Systems Engineer, Design Engineer, Quality Control Engineer, Project Engineer, Software Engineer, Software Analyst, Embedded Systems Engineer and ElectroMechanical Engineer. Graduates of this degree programme have the knowledge and skills to pursue careers in industries such as transport, marine, defence and precision engineering.
