Specialist Diploma in Underground Construction (SDUC)

Event code: 79014

This programme can be taken as separate stackable modular certificates.

Land-scarce Singapore has historically looked to build both upward with taller buildings and outward by reclaiming land from sea. However, another area that Singapore could do more with, is its underground space. The underground space holds possibilities for creating additional subterranean transport hubs, pedestrian links, cycling lanes, utility plants, storage and research facilities, industrial uses, shopping areas and other public spaces. Developing competency in the area of underground construction is critical to realizing such subterranean construction projects.

The Specialist Diploma in Underground Construction aims to equip Contractors and Consultants at the supervisory level with the knowledge in geotechnical design concepts, considerations and construction techniques so as to support increasingly complex and challenging underground construction projects.
