Full-time application is open to GCE 'O' Level / SPM / UEC holders and ITE graduates.

It should be noted that applicants, particularly those who wish to pursue a career in electrical power engineering or as a Licensed Electrical Worker (LEW), with colour vision deficiency may encounter difficulties meeting the course requirements and expectations, as this condition is required by the Energy Market Authority (EMA) of Singapore. Those with mild colour deficiency are required to undergo an in-house test. Interested applicants with this condition are highly encouraged to contact Singapore Polytechnic for more information.
