I can begin my career

As Singapore gears up to become a “smart nation”, DES graduates will be well placed to meet the strong demand for specialised manpower that help to develop innovative engineering solutions and build a smarter world. Due to its multi-disciplinary and applied approach, DES graduates can seek employment in various sectors such as Engineering Services, Transportation, Healthcare or even Supply Chain & Logistics. Some roles that DES graduates can fulfil include:

  • Assistant Product Development Engineer
  • Assistant Project Engineer
  • Assistant System Engineer
  • Assistant Engineer (System Integration Management)
  • Assistant Engineer (Application Development)
  • Assistant Engineer (Automation)

Most of our engineering fresh graduates will begin their career as an Assistant Engineer, progress to Engineer and then advance to Senior Engineer after they have gained technical experience in the field. Opportunity for growth and advancement to management position is possible after they have worked as a Senior Engineer for few years by becoming a Manager, taking up greater responsibility and challenges to hone their people management skills.
