Most popular Engineering with Business diploma course in Singapore to nurture technopreneurs who can leverage technology to exploit business opportunities.


The Diploma in Engineering with Business (DEB) gives you the best of both worlds and will train you to be a business-minded engineer with an entrepreneurial mind-set. If you are interested in science, mathematics and technology, but do not want to pursue a pure engineering course, this is the right choice for you.

In this course, you will acquire fundamental knowledge and skills in the fields of electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, and also learn how to apply business marketing concepts into engineering products and services.

This course also prepares you well for your further studies with up to two years of modules exemptions at the universities.

You can take advantage of the Technology to Business (T2B) Hub at EEE which is a collaborative space for start-ups where you can network with like-minded entrepreneurs and venture into businesses with mentorship provided by successful EEE alumni and industry partners. With the support from SP Group and industry partners through EEE Technopreneur Mentorship Program, you can embark on your start-up journey and have a head start to become a Technopreneur.
