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’.
 
Chemical Engineering, BSc
Programme Overview
Chemical Engineering is concerned with developing and implementing methods that convert basic raw materials into useful intermediate or end products such as fuels, plastics, cosmetics, dyes, crop protection agents, and medical preparations by means of physical, chemical and biological processes. In addition to improving existing processes, Chemical Engineers also develop new applications for these processes in response to changes in safety and environmental protection requirements.

This degree programme is largely focused on industrial chemistry, dealing with more upstream processes of Chemical Engineering. Students will be exposed to the development and design of chemical processes. A strong focus is placed on the fundamentals of inorganic and organic chemistry to provide novel solutions to the petrochemical, pharmaceutical and environmental industries.

Chemical Engineers excel in areas such as research and development, planning, design, operation, purchasing, sales, teaching, patent procedures and business management in the aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronic and environmental industries.
