Your Learning Journey

Year 1: Uploading Fundamentals

 

Your journey begins with the acquisition of fundamental knowledge in engineering, business and programming. You will experience the integration of engineering with business through doing a market situation analysis to identify market needs. You will also design and develop an engineering prototype using design thinking and CDIO techniques to meet the market needs and prepare a marketing plan for your prototype.

 

Year 2: Nurturing the Technopreneur
 

 

The nurturing process continues with in-depth learning of engineering principles and applications, including computer and microcontroller applications, thus allowing you to design an engineering product or service.

You will also learn the essential skills that include financial management, market research, selling techniques and specific technopreneurship skills to conduct feasibility study and to develop strategic marketing & financial plan for your product and service.

Year 3: Technopreneurship in Action

 

With the skills that you have garnered, you are now ready for some real-life action. You will be mentored through the overall process of developing a business plan for your venture or for a potential client.

You will also learn to solve real life business problems though a semester long internship or experience different cultures and way of doing business in a foreign environment through an immersion program in foreign universities.

You can also sharpen your knowledge in your area of interest by choosing from a basket of elective modules that cover engineering and business. .

Our Students’ Internship experience

 

Chester Tan, awarded a Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Performance in Creativity and Innovation from Doxon Engineering Pte Ltd. He designed an automated assembly gadget that enhances productivity by reducing process time from 5 minutes to 25 seconds. “I'm really glad that to be able to go through the internship program as i am able to apply the knowledge learnt in some of the courses. And through that, also gain the experiences of the working life."


Overseas Immersion Programme in China
 

Dexter Lee, Class of 2012, went to Beijing Technology and Business University for a three month immersion programme. He will start his studies at NTU Business School upon completion of his National Service.

Parent’s Testimony on the immersion programme “During his final year in SP, he opted to go for a four months overseas immersion programme in Beijing Technology and Business University instead of an internship at a local firm……….As someone who travels to China regularly for business, I was impressed that that my son could engage me on business challenges in China after his stint in Beijing. He has also learnt to be more independent”….. Mdm Rita Ow, mother of Dexter Lee.

 

Our Graduates

 

Thomas Tham, Class of 2012, is awarded the Ng Bok Eng Renaissance Engineering Scholarship. He will be pursuing the Renaissance Engineering Programme at NTU which awards a dual-degree comprising Bachelor of Engineering Science degree and Master of Science in Technology Management.

“DEB gave me the opportunity to explore and learn a wide range of subjects. The teaching of both engineering and business modules in this course allows me to integrate the technical aspects of engineering with essential business concepts. This approach provided me with an insight on how these concepts are applied to engineering products and services in the world of business.”

 

Ng Yu Xin, Class of 2013, is awarded the NTU Scholarship to pursue a double degree program, Business and Computer Engineering (BCE) Scholarship.

“Through the large variety of modules available in DEB course, not only did I gain knowledge and exposure in various areas such as mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering as well as business, but also discover an interest in electronic projects….
Now in NTU, my DEB experience provides me with the basics of both business and programming which are required in my current degree. DEB has also trained me to cope with the heavy study load in NTU better as compared to my fellow classmates.”

 

Our Graduates at work

 

Desmond Peng, class of 2013 – Currently Human Resource recruiting Officer , Team Leader of Adam Khoo’s Wealth Academy Investor Inner Circle and Coach (NLP Practitioner)

“The career I am pursing involves many different trades. It requires a broad base knowledge. However knowledge and skills are not only what DEB equipped me with, it is the entrepreneurial mind-set that triggered my hunger of knowledge. Finance, business and investment are just the first steps to fill my hunger. Lifelong learning is what I am eagerly looking forward to. For those who are looking for a challenging yet rewarding course, you have just found one in DEB! Enjoy the process and you will write your success story too.”

 

 

 

 

Our Graduates

 

 

Jasmin Lee, Class of 2012 currently pursuing a Degree in Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Engineering from Newcastle University as part of Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT).

“During my course of study, I was exposed to different presentation styles from both the business and engineering school. I am able to understand how engineering concepts can be integrated in the business society and vice-versa. I also had the chance to take up Diploma Plus in computer programming. With these unique set of skills, I am able to help companies improve productivity.“
