Diploma in Engineering (Awarded by Management Development Institute of Singapore)


About this Course

This programme provides an avenue for participants who want to formalise their experiences and understanding in the field of Engineering.  

It also reinforces participants' foundation in mathematics and physics and enhance their problem solving skills and techniques through lectures and tutorials.

Course Curriculum

Engineering Mathematics I

  • This module provides students with essential and fundamental skills in Mathematics required to solve real life engineering problems. Topics include functions, vectors, and calculus differentiation. 

Principles of Electrical Engineering

  • The objective of this module is to develop participants' understanding of electrical theories at the introductory level and an awareness of their applications in the engineering environment. 

Physics I – Mechanics

  • This module aims to provide students with the basic concepts and principles of physics and to strengthen the understanding of the concepts and principles through using a broad range of real life application examples. Topics include measurements, motions in one & two dimensions, vectors, circular motions, energy of a system and conservation of energy.
Engineering Mathematics II

  • This module provides an extension of Engineering Mathematics I. It enhances students with essential and fundamental skills in Mathematics required to solve real life engineering problems. Topics include calculus integration, differential equations, sequence and series and probability and statistic. 

Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics

  • This module provides students with an introduction to Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. Topics covered include hydrostatic forces on submerged body, surface tension forces, buoyancy and stability of floating bodies. For Thermodynamics, topics covered include temperature and zeroth-, first- and second- law of thermodynamics. 

Physics II – Mechanics & Waves

  • This is an extended module from Physics I. It aims to enhance student’s basic concept of mechanics and introduce fundamental theory of Waves. Topics include linear momentum & collisions, rotations of a rigid object about a fixed axis, static equilibrium, elasticity, universal gravitations, oscillatory motion, wave motion, sound waves and standing waves.
