The School of Architecture and the Built Environment, as it is known today, is the first, since the 1950s, in the training of professionals in the built environment. Over the years, we have changed the school name to better reflect the diplomas that we offer. ABE is now headed by Mr Faris Akbar Hajamaideen, our Director, and 4 Deputy Directors. We are proud to have 6 Diplomas to our name. They are Diploma in Architecture, Diploma in Landscape Architecture, Diploma in Interior Design, Diploma in Civil Engineering, Diploma in Integrated Events & Project Management and Diploma in Facilities Management.

In order to build future capabilities and talents in Singapore’s built environment, ABE offers many CET courses that are in tandem to move Singapore to become a Smart Nation.

Besides our dedicated lecturers, our alumni are also important parts of our school. We have a dynamic Alumni community that we engage frequently.

Our alumni are our greatest ambassadors! Your achievements and your contributions are our pride! As a graduate from ABE, you are our Alumni for life!
