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’.
Pharmaceutical Engineering, BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
SIT’s Pharmaceutical Engineering programme is the first in Singapore. This programme is built on an interdisciplinary curriculum that intersects engineering and science, with the aim to deliver a rigorous education that has a strong industry focus. The goal of this programme is to produce graduates who are both theoretically grounded and practice-oriented for the knowledge-intensive pharmaceutical industry and related sectors. This programme focuses on the development and manufacture of the two largest classes of pharmaceutical drugs, i.e. (i) biologics and (ii) small molecule drugs.

The programme’s unique curriculum which was developed in close consultation with industry is strongly girded with cutting-edge industry-relevant concepts and know-how. The curriculum is structured to train students across the full spectrum of core pharmaceutical development and manufacturing competencies, ranging from pharmaceutical product design to process development, operations, validation, and regulation.

Modules geared towards business and management acumen development will complement the technical core. Students will spend two trimesters in industry under the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) to acquire industry skill sets and apply taught theory to troubleshoot industry problems. To enhance their industry readiness, students will also receive industry endorsed competency-based certifications upon completion of selected modules, which will equip them with industry-validated skills that are attuned to employers’ needs.

Career Opportunities
SIT’s Pharmaceutical Engineering programme aims to nurture and groom skilled professionals for the pharmaceutical industry in Singapore. Besides the pharmaceutical industry, this programme also provides a unique opportunity for students interested in pursuing careers in other relevant industries including chemicals, biotechnology, life science, nutraceutical, and the flavours and fragrances sectors.
