From the smart phones and laptops that we use to the vehicles that we travel in, everything involves electronics in some way. Learn how electronics shape the way people live, work and play with the Diploma in Electronic & Computer Engineering (ECE).
ECE gives you a strong foundation in electronics, computer and communication engineering. With our industry-relevant curriculum, you will be well-placed to meet the needs of the industry when you graduate.
In your first year, you will learn the fundamental aspects of engineering with modules such as Electrical Technology, Engineering Mechanics and Engineering Mathematics. You will also be taught Computer Programming and Electronic Design & Prototyping skills.
In your second year, you can choose to deepen your expertise in a particular field by pursuing one of the five specialisation options.
In your final year, you will put your knowledge to the test with a six-month internship with industry leaders such as GlobalFoundries, Xilinx, M1, Rohde & Schwarz Asia and ST Kinetics.
What’s more, you may even get the chance to work on cutting-edge research projects supervised by NTU professors or industry-sponsored projects at our technology centres. Plus, you will go on local and overseas study trips that will widen your exposure to the exciting world of engineering.
