DIPLOMA IN MARINE ENGINEERING

WHAT IT IS

The Diploma in Marine Engineering (DMR) course offered at Singapore Polytechnic encompasses multi-disciplinary studies of engineering technology, such as mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, engineering design and control technology.

Students will undergo 5 academic semesters, and 1 internship semester (sea-going or shore-based) during the third year of study which will give them the opportunity to apply their learning.

The course will include not only lectures and laboratory work but also exposure to advanced ship engineering system simulators and various Naval Architecture training software, providing a comprehensive learning experience and training students for operational competencies they would require in the workplace.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Graduates of DMR who have clocked 6 months of sea-going experience are eligible to sit for examinations of Class of Competency Class 5 Marine Engineer Officer, eventually rising to the position of a Chief Engineer. Alternatively, graduates can pursue a shore-based career in the marine, service or oil industry.

FURTHER STUDIES

Graduates can gain direct entry into related engineering degree programmes in NUS, NTU and overseas universities or pursue a BEng (Hons) in Naval Architecture , Marine Engineering or Offshore Engineering offered by Newcastle University through the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT).

DMR graduates can also opt to pursue a Bachelor of Maritime Operations offered by the Maritime Institute of Willem Barentsz (The Netherlands), while at sea.

After rising to the rank of Chief Engineer, CoC Class 1 holders can also pursue Masters in Maritime Studies in NTU to further their studies.
