1  Students who have not passed or been exempted from the Qualifying English Test at the time of admissions to the Faculty will have to read ES1000 and/or ES1103. This will be decided by CELC.

2  For BEng students who are from direct poly intake and in the following special programmes: DDPs, CDPs, GEP & CSP, internship/industrial-attachment is optional and the modular credits for the internship/industrial-attachment will become ‘Free Electives’ i.e., Unrestricted Electives (UE).  

Practicing Professional Pathway

  • PPP students can select one of the following options to meet the degree requirements:

Option 1:  IE4102 and EG3612 (10MCs) + ISE Electives (16MCs)

Option 2:  IE4100R and EG3612 (14MCs) + ISE Electives (12MCs)

Option 3:  IE4102 and EG3611A (14MCs) + ISE Electives (12MCs)

  • PPP students will have to read IE4211 and IE4240 of professional development modules to meet the pathway requirements (8MCs).
