Advanced Diploma in Civil Engineering


Introduction

 

Advanced Diploma in Civil Engineering is specifically designed to align with the SkillsFuture initiative which aims to enhance the career progression of Civil Engineering diploma graduates in the built environment sector through skills deepening and obtaining relevant certification.

The coverage of this course is in line with the Built Environment Sectoral Manpower Plan to include the emerging trend of adopting productive technologies in the built environment sector, such as Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), Prefabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction (PPVC), Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Advanced Reinforced Concrete and Steel Design and Ground Engineering.

Only applicants who are awarded the Specialist Diploma in Civil Engineering (Productivity & Technology) are eligible to apply for the Advanced Diploma in Civil Engineering.

This course is also applicable for applicants who wish to embark on BCA’s Post-Diploma Development Programme (equivalent of Earn & Learn Scheme).

Quote:
“We need to embrace the approach of “Design for Manufacturing and Assembly”, DfMA in short. We need to do as much precast and prefabrication as possible. We need to bring in new processes and technologies such as prefab, pre-finished volumetric construction (PPVC) or building the Lego way for suitable projects to build faster and better with fewer workers on site.”  Dr John Keung, Chief Executive Officer of Building and Construction Authority (BCA), GOH for 55th Graduation Ceremony in 2015.

Course Objectives

 

This course aims to deepen the knowledge and skills of fresh polytechnic graduates and civil engineering professionals in the areas of productive technologies, advanced structural design and ground engineering to enhance occupational and personal competencies for better career progression in the industry.

 

Suitable for

 

The Advanced Diploma in Civil Engineering is suitable for applicants who wish to gain deeper skills and knowledge in new construction technologies, civil engineering design and management.

 


 

Minimum Entry Requirements

Applicants should have a Specialist Diploma in Civil Engineering (Productivity & Technology).
