Course introduction


The Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Clean Energy (DEECE) is designed to equip you with the fundamentals of electrical engineering and the necessary skill sets to meet the challenges 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; and
  • 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 exciting and rewarding careers as clean energy technologists, facility management executives, or work in energy specialist firms as consultants or designers. You can also become an entrepreneur to tap on the growing potential of the clean energy industry.
