Exclamation SIT SIE (Land) - Another Uni to become Registered / Professional Engineer?

Hi all,

I'm pretty sure as of now almost everyone will know Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) belongs to one of the Autonomous University of Singapore.

I had been admitted into their Bachelor of Engineering w/ Honours in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) course also known as BEng (Hons) SIE (Land). Which has a through-train programme towards the Master of Engineering Technology in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) course also known as METech SIE (Land).

Ultimately I wish to become a registered professional Engineer in Singapore after completing this 4-years BEng / METech programme.


As I was browsing through this forum, I realised that a few posters stated only NUS / NTU engineering programme allows that to happen. Hence I sent an email to SIT in-regards to this and I received this reply:

"Our SIT curriculum of the 180 credits BEng (core modules) & Master (60 credits) is academically intensive and can better prepare our SIE Engineering students well for the PE (Professional Engineers examination) and for future job placement in the relevant industry.

SIT is currently in the process of seeking accreditation for our SIT-SIE programme with the Engineering Accreditation Board, pending for formal approval. Our 1st cohort of our SIE programme graduates are already out in the workforce this year and some are currently in pursue of their post-graduate programme with SIT.

Upon graduation from their Master and have acquired at least 4 years of relevant working experiences in a related work industry, our SIT-SIE graduates (at least 240 credits) will be eligible to apply for their PE registration examinations."




And according to their website under the Academics > Master's Programme,
It states that:
"The Master of Engineering Technology in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) is a 60-credit postgraduate programme for working professionals who are seeking to be a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and/or Professional Engineer (PE). This programme is a mandatory requirement to be eligible for consideration for CEng and PE (Mechanical) in Singapore and UK."
"The MEngTech programme will be seeking professional accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Board. The first provisional accreditation exercise of the MEngTech with BEng was completed in November 2017."



Does this mean that SIT is now officially the 3rd University in Singapore other than NUS and NTU to allow their graduates to become an official registered Engineer?

Can ask TS to refer to this thread. Kyoji is there to give lots of useful tips in this thread regarding PE.

Should not be recognised yet.

you can check the PEB site and email their personnel to double confirm.
