Diploma in Digital Engineering (Full-time)

With the present global drive towards attaining sustainable built environment, there is a growing need to ensure buildings are developed in an efficient manner. Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become one of the most exciting developments in the building and construction industry. As an emerging design and documentation tool used to enhance communication and collaboration among all the project stakeholders, BIM is changing the way designers, consultants, contractors and building owners work together.

This programme is designed to equip students with the knowledge of using 3D technology in the building industry. It covers fundamental knowledge of the building lifecycle through the use of BIM. BIM is a 3D digital visualisation tool to manage data for design and construction. Students will focus on BIM applications for design analysis, production design and construction coordination, as well as facilities management. Students will also build a good foundation in various IT softwares, web application, digital media and 3D presentation.

Graduates of this programme will be in a unique position to leverage on use of advance 3D technology to support the building industry.

Programme Objectives
The Diploma in Digital Engineering (DDE) is a 3-year full-time programme that aims to equip students with the following capabilities and attributes: 
- Develop building drawings and documentation conforming to industry standards and practices through the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM); 
- Analyse design of buildings by integrating various building services and applying production design and construction coordination through BIM solutions; and 
- Manage data integrity from design to construction and facilities management.

Students will also undertake a Final Year Project or undergo Industrial Attachment in the third year of study to put their skills into practice and gain experiences before their graduation. 

Career Prospects
Upon graduation, graduates of this diploma can look forward to rewarding career opportunities like Project Coordinator in Building Information Modelling (BIM), Building Information Modeller, BIM Specialist.
