Global trends shaping the industry and the course

Singapore’s construction demand is expected to remain strong with larger and more complex projects such as Changi Airport Terminal 5, Jurong Region and Cross Island MRT lines coming up. With stable and sustained growth in construction demand over the next few years, the built environment sector needs to be more productive and competitive by continuing to leverage technologies and emerging trends.

In the most recent Construction Industry Transformation Map (ITM), the 3 ways that the industry hopes to transform itself was summarized into 3 succinct ways, i.e. to ‘Build SMART, Build EFFICIENTLY & Build GREEN’, as a response to the challenges arising from the digital revolution, rapid urbanisation and climate change. The curriculum at DCE will equip you with the skillsets that are aligned with the ITM.
