Did you know that besides providing physical spaces, buildings also impact our well-being as well as climate change?
This course will equip you with the necessary multi-disciplinary skill-sets to become a para-professional who designs smart and sustainable buildings for tomorrow’s cityscape. With flexible career options, you can play an essential role in digital architecture or building systems engineering to positively impact green and sustainable practices.
Explore virtual design and smart technologies to create a built environment like no other.
The opportunities we provide are endless!
Develop specialised software skills in virtual design such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) and bioclimatic simulations to conceptualise designs by predicting building performance.
In line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, envision buildings that address issues on the nation’s sustainable development agenda, such as climate change, carbon emissions and environmental degradation.
Equip yourself with skill-sets in Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) systems coupled with automation technologies for energy efficiency in our dedicated Integrative Built Environment Centre (IBEC).
Competing against participants from local and overseas universities, our students were shortlisted finalists in 2021 and 2020, and won a Merit award in 2017. Each year, our enthusiastic students take pride in showcasing their proficiency in Building Information Modelling (BIM), computational design and sustainability as part of their final-year project.
Amidst the current COVID-19 endemic, our students and staff found the opportunity to innovate solutions for the new normal and won funding to develop their product ideas in connection with TP’s Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC). One of them mentioned, “The thought of having an idea become a reality still feels surreal!”
Collaborating with industry experts in architecture (WeCreate Studio & PROSE Architects), and sustainable design (Earth-in-mind Pte Ltd), our students worked on bioclimatic simulations to design a comfortable environment with a human-centric design for an open competition to find ideal candidates for a job. The team won the contest and clinched the venture.
