Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Clean Energy

The Diploma in Enectical Engineering and Clean Energy (DEECE) is designed to equip you with the fundamentals of electrical engineering and the necessary skill sets to meet the challengers of the fast emerging clean energy industry. Singapore's aspiration to be a global clean energy hub has three key planks.

- Promote wider adoption of clean energy among businesses.
- Develop and test new clean energy technology.
- Market clean energy products and services overseas.

By 2030, 80% of Singapore's buildings will be green. Singapore will continue to invest in the clean technology industry that will help green urban cities. This will contribute some $3.4 billion to Singapore's GDP and create 18,000 jobs by 2015.

You will acquire a solid foundation and practical skills in electrical engineering and renewable energy. You will also be equipped with other soft skills like management, accounting and communication, and core competencies in power distribution system design, industrial system
control and energy management. Armed with this diploma, you can look forward to executives and rewarding careers as clean energy technologists facility management executives, or work in energy specialist firms as consultants or designers. You can also become and
entrepreneur to tap on the growing potential of the clean energy industry.


PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Clean Energy is a 3-year full-time programme that aims to equip students with the fundamental knowledge and specialised skills necessary to assist engineers and managers in:

- Designing, operating and maintaining of electrical services for buildings;
- Performing and supervising effectively the various electrical works on-site;
- Performing energy auditing works;
- Designing and commissioning grid-tied and stand-alone photovoltaic systems; and
- Conserving and optimising energy usage in building.

Students will undergo industrial attachment during the second semester in the third year of study.
