Energy industry is the main driver of Singapore’s economy and it is with us everywhere, all the time. Energy systems secure the operation of our daily life gadgets, household appliances, commercial centres, transportation system and water supply system. With fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas depleting, and the increasing threat of global warming, there is a pressing need to optimise the energy system and manage the supply of energy efficiently.

Diploma in Energy Systems and Management (DESM) provides you with a wide spectrum of knowledge and technical skills to tackle the energy-related challenges of the future, and to ensure the energy sustainability of the Singapore economy.

With DESM, you will gain engineering skills in three focus areas: Clean Energy, Power Engineering and Energy Efficiency & Management. These skillsets will transform you into next generation of technologists to develop a smart and sustainable energy solutions of the future.
