OVERVIEW

The BTech Engineering Bridging Units (BEBUs), are short intensive courses specially designed for holders of two-and-a-half-year part-time engineering diplomas intending to pursue tertiary study. These Units are aimed at strengthening the foundation of students and address curricular preparation or transition in Engineering Mathematics and basic engineering topics so that they will be able to cope better with an Engineering degree programme such as the Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programme. A student’s performance in the BEBUs course will be considered in the assessment of an application to be admitted into the BTech Engineering programme.

ELIGIBILITY

The BEBUs course is mandatory for (and only open to) BTech applicants who hold a two-and-a-half-year Continuing Education and Training (CET) Part-time relevant Local Diploma in Engineering/Applied Science/Business Practice/Infocomm Technology.

UNITS

To complete the BEBUs course, it is compulsory to take the following three units (click on a link to see the syllabus):

Introductory Engineering Mathematics

Physical Principles in Engineering

Discipline Unit (applicants need to take one of the following, based on the discipline that they wish to pursue in the BTech programme; Industrial & Management Engineering and Supply Chain Management may choose any of the disciplines offered):

Chemical Engineering

Civil Engineering (For Aug intake only)

Electronics Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Each Unit comprises a total of eight lectures and four tutorials, each of three hours' duration. Each Unit also includes additional mid-term test, laboratory and assignment components as well as an end-of-Unit examination.

A Unit will be offered only if there is a sufficient number of registrations to form a class.
