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’.
Mechanical Design Engineering, BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
Mechanical Design Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. It integrates the understanding of core mechanicals and materials with the design process facilitated by the knowledge of manufacturing technologies and engineering principles. It involves the production and usage of mechanical power for the design and development of tools, machines or structures comprising moving parts that work together to make life easier. Mechanical Design Engineering makes the world go round, with applications for almost everything from taps to dams, bicycles to aircraft.

This degree programme seeks to meet the industrial challenges and demands by producing innovative engineers with the capabilities and aptitude for the design of engineering products. Students will learn to manipulate the core concepts of mechanics, kinematics, thermal and materials sciences. They will also learn structural analysis to design and analyse systems, equipment and machinery in key industries such as aerospace, maritime, robotics and healthcare.

Mechanical Design Engineers are essential for the design and development of mechanisms, components and structures which are integral parts of automotive, marine, aerospace, biomedical, chemical, construction, environmental, and power-generation industries, among others.
