Course Objective

As Singapore moves towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution (known as Advanced Manufacturing* in Singapore), many new high-valued jobs will be created to support the digital transformation that many companies are undertaking to improve the digitalization of process. Manufacturing has been a key engine for the Singapore’s economy, accounting for about a fifth of its gross domestic product. As this trend is expected to continue, the SP School of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering is pleased to introduce our Diploma in Engineering (Advanced Manufacturing). This course will better prepare our working adults with the necessary skills and knowledge for their future career advancement and to meet the future demands for the necessary skillsets targeting advanced manufacturing.

Participants are required to bring computer notebook when attending lessons, as you may need it to access the e-learning materials, writing reports, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


1. Is Diploma in Engineering (Advanced Manufacturing) pegged at advanced-level?

At diploma level. Diploma in Engineering (Advanced Manufacturing) aims to provide the students with a strong foundation in Manufacturing and Mechanical Technology, with an emphasis on emerging skillsets needed for Advanced Manufacturing.

As Singapore moves towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution (known as Advanced Manufacturing in Singapore), many new high-valued jobs will be created to support the digital transformation that many companies are undertaking to improve the digitalization of process.

2. What are the differences between Advanced Manufacturing and Mechanical Technology?

Both Diplomas in Engineering provide students an opportunity to articulate into NUS (B Tech) degree programme, and provide good relevant trainings to join engineering industries.

For Diploma in Engineering (Advanced Manufacturing), it focuses on learning emerging knowledge and skills (like additive manufacturing, IoT, data analytics) to support industries undergoing transformation, whereas the latter aims on giving students a broad-based knowledge and skills to work in general manufacturing industries.

Both mechanical graduates will be in good demand to join the workforce in manufacturing-led economy in Singapore.

3. Which universities can I apply to after I complete my CET Diploma? You can apply to part-time undergraduate programmes which are relevant to your diploma course at NUS and UniSIM.

Please click here for more information on NUS, Bachelor of Technology (Btech)

4. Will I need to take any bridging programme?

The revised part-time diploma is intended to be more accessible to the workforce, and is made shorter in duration compared to the full-time diploma because broad-based interdisciplinary modules, final year projects and internships, as well as academic modules such as Mathematics and Sciences, are omitted. As such, most part-time undergraduate programmes would require you to go through a bridging programme to prepare you adequately before admission.

5. If I need to take the bridging programme, how much will it cost and how long will it take?

While the bridging programmes are currently being worked out by the polytechnics and universities, the duration will depend on the type and nature of the part-time degree course that you apply for, and are expected to be between six months to a year. The fees will not be more expensive than undergraduate modules of comparable duration.

Suitable for

This course is specially designed to target at technicians, technical supervisors and other personnel, who are seeking to better prepare themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge, for future career advancement to meet the future demands for the necessary skillsets targeting advanced manufacturing in the Manufacturing sector. This course is also suitable for people who intend to make a conversion to these technical areas in their academic and career pursuits.
