Electrical and electronic engineering is the broadest and most dynamic of all engineering. It covers everything from micron-scale transistors to macro-scale network systems. This is a major sector in Singapore’s economy. In 2011, Electronics industry contributed an output of S$86.1 billion and employed more than 82,000 workers.
Your future career options span a wide range of industries - from aerospace and biomedical industries to robotics and microelectronics sectors, and much more.
The Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (DEEE) will prepare you to be a competent and a much sought after technologist to meet the challenges of a very fast-moving industry.
