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’.
 
Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering), MEngTech and BEng (Hons)
Programme Overview
The Master of Engineering Technology and Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering) is the first of its kind in Singapore. It consists of two interdisciplinary fields – Vehicular Telematics and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Engineering.

ITS plays an important role in enhancing our public transport systems, as well as managing and optimising the limited road space in Singapore. ITS continues to be the mainstay for delivering a convenient, safe and comfortable travel experience. An increasing vehicle population in our land-scarce city-state, coupled with changing social, economic and technological landscapes have brought forth new opportunities for growth and breakthroughs in transportation technologies, application and solutions.

Vehicles of tomorrow will have the capability to communicate with nearby vehicles wirelessly and share useful information on their surroundings, providing commuters and motorists with an enhanced travel experience. The primary driver for such connected vehicles and inter-vehicle cooperative application is the enhancement of safety for both motorists and pedestrians. The development of telematics technologies and vehicular communication technologies enable telematics applications such as advance driver-assistance applications to alert motorists on road safety, dynamic routing, intelligent parking guidance and real-time traffic news delivery, amongst others.

The Master of Engineering Technology and Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Telematics (ITS Engineering) is a multi-disciplinary programme with a curriculum that has been developed with support from organisations such as LTA, ST Electronics, NCS and Continental Automotive Singapore Pte Ltd. Students will be equipped with electrical engineering and computer science core skills and ITS knowledge in order to work in this technically challenging field. Deep specialist skills in vehicular communication, telematics technologies and ITS engineering are much needed in these industries.

Curriculum
To be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering), students will be required to complete six trimesters of study and two trimesters of Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP). To be awarded the Master of Engineering Technology, students are required to complete eight trimesters of study and two trimesters of Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP). Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) programme may proceed to take the Master of Engineering Technology degree, provided they meet the necessary requirements.

Industrial Immersion Programme (IIP): Students will have the opportunity to visit relevant industries locally or overseas in the area of telematics, automotive engineering or ITS to understand the latest development in this field.

Trend Antenna: Students will have the opportunity to participate in the Trend Antenna programme developed by Continental Automotive Singapore Pte Ltd. This programme allows students to be at the frontline of cutting-edge technologies and innovation in the automotive industry. Students will be expected to generate new ideas, research about technologies, prototype ideas, as well as develop value chain and possible business models. The innovative ideas from trend antenna may also be used in group design projects or capstone projects.

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP): IWSP is held over a span of 8 months and provides you with the opportunity to gain industry experience, integrate theory with practice and develop deep specialist skills in your chosen field. You will also be involved in day-to-day operations and confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Career Opportunities
Telematics (ITS Engineering) is a unique programme with a curriculum that has been developed with support from various organisations in the land transport industry such as LTA, Singapore Technologies, NCS and companies in the automotive industry such as Continental Automotive Singapore Pte Ltd. Students will therefore gain the necessary knowledge and skills to embark on a rewarding career in the industry.
