Comprehensive and highly sought-after Computing diploma course to develop engineers who can devise innovative solutions for a Smart Nation.


Singapore is striving to become a “Smart Nation”, and many big, modern cities in this world are racing toward that direction too. In the Smart Cities of future, we will see autonomous vehicles roaming on the roads; drones delivering orders; Intelligent City Management Systems (traffic, transport, power-grid, policing), etc. We will also see intelligent robots in Smart Factories producing high-quality products; AI-powered Smart Farms growing nutritious and environment-friendly vegetables. The future Smart Cities rely heavily on modern technologies such as AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things), Data Analytics, 5G networking and Cybersecurity. Do you have the knowledge and skills in these areas, tapping on these trends to achieve great success in your career?

Diploma in Computer Engineering (DCPE) is the course that you can gain knowledge and skillsets for these emerging trends to develop secured smart solutions with intelligent devices for innovative info-communication service. "Computer Engineering" is a discipline about the hardware and software aspects of computer science. Computers are at the heart of any intelligent, modern and high tech systems. Devices and systems are becoming smarter (e.g. AI-enabled) because of computers.

DCPE is the most comprehensive diploma-level computing course in Singapore, offering varieties of specializations that no other courses can match. You are guaranteed to find the specialization that inspires and excites you. With DCPE, you will be equipped with solid foundation in computer and electronic hardware design, software programming, networking, cyber security, and cloud computing. You will master the skill of integrating various computing technologies to design and implement intelligent systems and robotics. These skills & knowledge will empower you to take up the challenges of this digital age.

Tech Areas of DCPE

How is DCPE different from other IT courses that also teach Software Programming, AI, and/or Cyber Security? Visit the Facebook Page of DCPE (www.facebook.com/dcpe.sp) for the answers!!!

DCPE offers the uniqueness of covering Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT), which combines “Artificial Intelligence” (AI) and “Internet of Things” (IoT). AI is not new (the term “AI” was adopted by Computer Scientist Prof John McCarthy in 1956), while the idea of “IoT” is more recent (about 2008, according to Cisco Systems). Combining the power of IoT in “sensor data collection” with the power of AI in “performance optimization”, computer engineers are seeing explosive opportunities in inventing smart systems to catalyse our society into an AIoT-powered future.


In EEE, we apply AIoT knowledge in our iconic and industry projects. Students gained invaluable experience of applying AI and IoT knowledge together to tackle engineering problems. Examples: Autonomous Electric Vehicle (AEV); Vertical Farming; and RoboCup@Work. EEE will have our new AIoT Centre in 2020, to further explore the potential of AI and IoT technologies in engineering applications, and to devise innovative, intelligent and ingenious solutions for our future world.
