Specialist Diploma in M&E Coordination (SDME)

Event code: 74033



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.

You will have the flexibility to take the modular certificates in any order and at your own pace*. The certificates can be stacked up towards the Specialist Diploma.
*Maximum of 3 years to accumulate the certificates for an academic qualification


The Specialist Diploma in M&E Coordination aims to equip individuals with the technical knowledge and managerial skills necessary to excel in the increasingly important role of an MEP coordinator. The program is designed to meet the growing complexity of Mechanical, Electrical, and site management in various building projects, with a focus on proper planning and coordination to achieve operational efficiency and optimal maintenance. Participants will gain industry-relevant expertise in MEP systems, including air-conditioning, mechanical ventilation, plumbing, electrical, telecommunication, and Building Automation Systems (BAS), along with comprehensive knowledge in site management.

Upon completion, graduates will be prepared to take on roles such as MEP engineers, property executives, facilities executives, and can progress to advanced positions such as project managers or MEP managers. The program also serves as a recognized technical qualification for MEP work head registration under BCA’s Contractors Registry.
