The Diploma in Civil Engineering with Business is a broad-based and multi-disciplinary course that provides students with training in civil engineering within the context of a business environment. The Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) has stated that there is an increasing need for polytechnic graduates who are multi-disciplined. A recent survey of current and prospective students and other stakeholders has revealed the course to be well-accepted and attractive. There is a high demand for our graduates to support the development of exciting infrastructure such as Changi Airport's Jewel, T4 and T5. Our graduates can also pursue further studies at local and overseas universities.

  3. Civil Engineering Projects 1 & 2 which may involve collaboration with the industry.
  4. An option for students to take a Diploma-plus certificate course to enhance their knowledge, skills and attitude for work and life.
