The growing complexity of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) services in commercial, residential, industrial and infrastructural projects have made the role of an MEP coordinator increasingly important. Proper planning and coordination of MEP services are central to the success of building projects and play a key role in achieving building aesthetics, operational efficiency and optimal building maintenance.

The Specialist Diploma in M&E Coordination is designed to meet the increasing sophistication in building design as demanded by the market. It aims to equip individuals with technical knowledge of industry’s best practices as well as managerial skills to undertake both conventional and specialised building projects. The Specialist Diploma in M&E Coordination is recognised by BCA as a technical qualification that is acceptable for MEP work head registration under BCA’s Contractors Registry.

Upon graduation, participants can look forward to become MEP engineers, property executives and facilities executives. The Specialist Diploma also serves as a stepping-stone for its holders to progress to technically advanced positions such as project managers or MEP managers.
