DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) are pleased to announce the offering of a new joint degree program specializing in systems engineering.
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems) — or SEEMS — combines the studies of mechanical, electrical/electronic, and computer engineering, providing students with a holistic framework for understanding the larger cycles of product development and implementation. Students of the SEEMS program will specifically focus on the engineering of complex mechanical systems driven by the use of microprocessors and microcontrollers.
In addition to foundational coursework in mathematics, programming, and computer engineering, students will go on to study topics relating to systems design, integration, and project management.
In doing so, graduates will be uniquely prepared to tackle the technological challenges that correspond with increased globalization and interconnected devices — solving problems that require a specialized knowledge of how a larger system is shaped and affected by its many components.
The SEEMS program represents a joint effort between DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore and SIT and includes a strong emphasis on the integration of student knowledge and skills into a real work environment. During their third year of coursework, students will participate in an Integrated Work Study Program (IWSP) through SIT, giving them valuable on-the-job training and experience at a Singapore-based company before they graduate. Students will also participate in a one-semester Overseas Immersion Program at DigiPen’s main U.S. campus in Redmond, Washington.
