The Electrical & Electronic Engineering Programme serves as an entry point to 4 EEE-related engineering diplomas.
In the first year, students go through a course to learn the fundamentals of engineering. They then choose one of the following 4 diploma courses to join:

Streaming to the Diploma in Aerospace Electronics will take place after the 1st semester's results are released. Students selected for the course will thereafter join the course in the 2nd semester.
A second streaming exercise will take place for the remaining students in Semester 2. Students will choose and then be streamed to one of the 3 diploma courses. Students will then join the diploma courses starting Year 2.
There is no difference in curriculum. Students in courses with direct intake (such as: Diploma in Aerospace Electronics and Diploma in Computer Engineering) will go through the same curriculum as the EEEP students. When EEEP students join the diploma, they will be on the same exact footing as those who had joined the courses direct.
When students choose a programme, they do not have to decide on a diploma course at that point in time. Hence, they will have some time to learn about the diploma courses, the industry, their aptitude and their interest. They can make an informed decision on the diploma course to join.
The EEE Programme helps to meet the industries’ need for manpower in the areas covered by the courses.
Selection for all the courses is by merit.
For the Aerospace Electronics course, a number of places are set aside for students from EEEP. But due to the popularity of the course and fact that the course admits students directly, the demand usually exceeds the number of places available. Nevertheless, EEEP still offers students an opportunity and an avenue to get into the course.
For the other 3 courses, from previous years’ experience, almost all students could be placed in the course of their choice.
CEP allows students to choose from 8 diploma courses. With more choices, CEP is naturally more attractive. But due to the greater interest from students, the Last Aggregate Score (LAS) for this course usually tends to be lower.
EEEP is suitable for students who have already decided to pursue courses offered in the programme. The programme ensures that adequate manpower is trained in the area to meet the needs of the industry. Students should also apply for EEEP, if they feel uncertain of securing a place in CEP.
Graduates from the 4 diploma courses are given advanced standing by many local and foreign universities to their degree programmes. The National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) grant graduates direct entry into the second year of their engineering degree programmes.
With the training they have received, graduates can also apply to a variety of higher education courses in many other disciplines.
