Recognising the gravity of environmental concerns, many green initiatives have been introduced at rapid pace in recent years.
The Specialist Diploma in Environment & Water Technology will equip learners with the knowledge and skills to support the continued growth of environmental care in Singapore in the areas of air, water and solid waste pollution control and management, as well as the new sustainable economy, particularly in the areas of energy management and sustainability.
All students are required to bring their own notebooks for lessons. You may refer to the required technical specifications for notebooks HERE.
ENERGY SYSTEMS AND EFFICIENCY COURSE
This course includes energy-intensive systems and energy efficiency, all of which are new developments in the areas of pollution control and environmental care.
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ESSENTIALS
Learners will also gain insight into other important areas of environmental-care. Waste and energy sustainability are among the top focus areas in Singapore and globally.
INTEGRATED DIPLOMA PATHWAY IN SUSTAINABILITY
This course aligns with another CET programme, the Specialist Diploma in Environmental Technology & Energy Sustainability, provides a shared Post-Diploma Certificate in Sustainable Utilities System. SDEWT graduates can enhance their expertise in pollution control and renewable energy, earning dual specialist diplomas in just three semesters.
|Water & Wastewater Treatment
This subject covers the scientific principles behind the membrane separation processes, and the classification of industrial wastewaters and the strategies for wastewater treatment to meet trade effluent standards and for resource recovery. For water treatment, further studies into the characteristics of microfiltration, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis are also carried out. Differences in the behaviour of different membranes are also highlighted. Desalination membrane systems and industrial case studies will be covered as well. For wastewater treatment, the characteristics and treatment methodology for various industries like chemical, pharmaceutical, etc. will be covered. Membrane bioreactor systems and industrial case studies will also be included.
|Urban Waste & Environmental Management System
This subject covers issues related to urban solid waste management and an integrated approach to environmental management through the consideration of the potential impact of human activities on the physical and biological environment. Solid waste topics include generation, collection, transportation, thermal recovery technology, biological recovery technology and landfill. Continual improvement to organisation environmental performance is covered in environmental management system (ISO 14001), which includes environmental regulations in Singapore.
|Plant Utilities System & Pollution Control
This subject covers the operation and maintenance of common utilities found in industries and the technologies used for air pollution control from point-source emissions. Topics for plant utilities include boiler systems, high-purity water, industrial chillers, and cooling towers. Topics for pollution control include types of air pollutants and their impact on health and environment, air quality monitoring, air pollution control technology and equipment.
|Mechanical & Air Conditioning System*
This subject covers the workings of common energy-intensive systems in the workplace, chiefly the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) system. Among the areas covered are configurations of different chilled water distribution systems, different types of fans used in mechanical ventilation systems, types of instruments used for measurement of parameters in air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation (ACMV) systems and how the systems can be optimized for energy efficiency.
“My personal interest in the environment led me to the Specialist Diploma programme on Environment and Water Technology offered by Temasek Polytechnic. I realise the importance of following one’s interest, to always upgrade and learn new skills to contribute more meaningfully to society.”
