Diploma in Energy Systems and Management (DESM) JAE Code: S45

Overview Entry Requirements What You'll Study Your Future


Diploma in Energy System & Management (DESM) is all about ENERGY.

  • Energy is everywhere and in everything we do as individuals and as societies.DESM@SP will equip you with the knowledge and expertise in multiple energy systems and science so as to design energy efficient technologies that will contribute to an economically and environmentally sustainable future.


Engineering Forte 

  • Come and be part of our SP Energy Team which has been instrumental in establishing

    Singapore’s first Solar-Wind Integrated System within the campus. We provide the platform for several government agencies to test-bed different variety of solar photovoltaic systems.
  • Currently, our team has been awarded funding from the Ministry of Education (MOE) and Energy Market Authority (EMA) of Singapore with a total amount of S$1.8 Million for Research & Development (R&D) projects. Join us now to sculpt the latest technological trends in energy domains.


Unique Selling Point

  • Inter-disciplinary broad-based programme which leverages on the teaching expertise from School of Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE), Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering (MAE) and Chemical Life Science (CLS).

  • Option to complete your academic programme in five semesters and participate in a Multi-Disciplinary Project (MDP) in the last semester.

  • Curriculum encompasses Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) framework, enhanced through Design Thinking process, which is used in leading universities in the United States, Europe and Australia.

  • Your diploma is recognised by the Energy Market Authority (EMA). Graduates are eligible to apply for electrical professional licence - Licenced Electrical Worker (LEW) - in electrical power industry.

  • Subsidized Overseas Industrial Training Programmes (OITP) in Australia, Germany, China and Thailand.

Course Structure

  • DESM aims to provide students with a broad-based skillset to meet the industrial needs in three key fields, namely, Power Engineering, Energy Efficiency and Clean Energy.

Pillars of DESM Course Structure


Key Foundation Subjects of DESM Course Structure


You will be exposed to a broad fundamental knowledge of electrical & electronic engineering, fusing with interdisciplinary modules from various schools. There will also be modules covering on environmental aspects of sustainable energy sources; integration of renewable energies with power grid; power system engineering; energy storage systems and numerous fascinating subjects.

Buildings account for around 30 percent of the world’s total energy consumption and a similar percentage of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Part of DESM curriculum is dedicated to the energy monitoring and management aspects of buildings.
