DME Course info


DME is Singapore’s first engineering course. It has remained the island’s de facto first choice mechanical engineering diploma course since its inception in 1958.

Regardless of your specialisation, we are constantly reinventing our curriculum to align with international trends and accreditations. You will not only develop a firm foundation in a wide range of Engineering disciplines but also acquire basic skills in Business and Humanities.

During your second year, you will be streamed into one of six specialisations. Many graduates have built successful careers in Engineering. Some are leading large corporations while others started their own businesses.

Consider taking the ‘Biomedical’ specialisation, one of the six specialisations in this diploma, if you are interested in creating innovative equipment and procedures in collaboration with engineers, doctors and scientists in the rapidly advancing biomedical sciences industry.
