Future Career and Studies

Coupling business knowledge and skills with engineering expertise is a competitive advantage for DEB graduates in the contemporary world.  In line with the national SkillsFuture movement, many of the DEB graduates have leveraged on the multi-disciplinary curriculum offered by the DEB course to take advantage of a wide range of career and further education opportunities to enhance mastery of their skills and realise their aspirations.


During the final year of the DEB course, students will undergo a 22-weeks enhanced internship stint at an organization to gain real-work experience.  The internship experience has in fact been a cornerstone for DEB graduates to chart the path for their future professional skills and academic development.  The DEB course has a strong network of industry partners supporting our enhanced internship programme from whom DEB students have benefitted through authentic work experience.

The following are some companies that our students have completed internship with:


Upon graduation, DEB students are well-suited for a wide range of careers in the following (but not limited to) areas:

  • Sales & Marketing
  • Project Administration
  • Installation Engineering
  • Testing & Quality Assurance Engineering
  • New Business Venture

A number of DEB graduates have also tried their hands at entrepreneurship by setting up their own new business venture (please visit the other pages of this website for snippets on some of the DEB students’ entrepreneurship ventures).
