The National University of Singapore (NUS) Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programme is specially designed for polytechnic graduates working in the industry, and is taught by highly-qualified faculty members in advanced teaching facilities at NUS.

Offered by NUS Faculty of Engineering in partnership with NUS School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE), the BTech in Engineering is a part-time programme delivered via a modular structure, which allows students to study at their own pace, posing minimal disruption to their personal and work commitments.

The programme allows student to choose from six different Engineering disciplines:

Four disciplines (Chemical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Industrial & Management Engineering and Mechanical Engineering) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) of the Institute of Engineers Singapore (IES), while one (Civil Engineering) is currently seeking provisional accreditation. BTech (Supply Chain Management) is not accredited.

Why this Programme?

  • Upgrade from a polytechnic Diploma to a Bachelor’s Degree for better career progression opportunities.
  • Be assured of a high-quality education, with a programme recognised for the practice of engineering at the professional level.
  • Study at an individualised pace with a flexible programme structure.
