The local environment and water industry have been growing rapidly and are expected to continue expanding over the next decade. As one of the most water-stressed countries globally, Singapore has become a world leader in water treatment through decades of planning and innovation.
Today, we have managed to establish a sustainable domestic supply and export sophisticated water purification technologies to our international peers. Singapore is now internationally recognised as a model city for integrated water management and an emerging Global Hydrohub – a leading centre for business opportunities and expertise in water technologies.
Through this course, you will be equipped with the knowledge to operate environment and utility installations and be well-acquainted with environment management and legislation. You will learn about the strategies and principles of wastewater treatment, air pollution control, as well as solid and waste hazardous management.

Topics covered in this subject include ISO 14001 environmental management system and environmental regulations in Singapore.
Modes of Assessment
"The impact of the pandemic has made me realized the importance of constantly upgrading our knowledge and competencies to stay ahead of all these inevitable changes, especially in the areas of hygiene and environment awareness. TP was one of the polytechnics that was offering this course with strong applied science background and so I decided to take a leap of faith!
With this course, I learnt about waste management, factors of air pollution and how we can leverage on water technology to be self-sufficient in water usage. I believe that with the new skill and knowledge, I will be able to expand my career opportunities and eventually be able to move into environmental studies or research in my organisation."
