Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM)

Event code: 79019


This programme can be taken as separate stackable modular certificates.

The certificates can be taken in any order (within 3yrs). Upon completion of all modular certificates, you will be awarded the Specialist Diploma.


Modularisation and prefabrication of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems is a game-changer to Singapore’s construction industry. It transforms the way buildings are designed and built with improved productivity and better quality. The Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM) is specially catered for leaners who are keen to develop professionally and expand their capabilities to lead the adoption of modularized and prefab MEP, with knowledge and skills in the area of BIM for MEP, DfMA, advance jointing methods, as well as the life cycle production process of Prefab MEP systems. Lessons are conducted through classroom learning of principles and theories, reinforced by real world application through computer lab activities, hands-on work in the MEP lab as well as out-of-classroom experiential learning journey. Upon graduation, you will be part of the growing MEP experts in a game changing field of DfMA in the construction industry.
