Accreditation

Our Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Engineering Engineering) and Bachelor of Engineering (Information Engineering and Media) programmes at NTU School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) are accredited by The Institution of Engineers Singapore, the Singapore signatory of the Washington Accord, through its Engineering Accreditation Board. The Washington Accord is an international agreement for mutual recognition of the substantial equivalence of engineering academic programmes in satisfying the academic requirements for the practice of engineering at the professional level.

Our curricula provide an excellent foundation for either graduate study or employment.  The education and research activities in the School are strongly aligned with its mission and programme educational objectives (PEOs). PEOs are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the programme is preparing graduates to achieve.

Our PEOs are aligned closely with the EAB’s Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs). They are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. 

Each programme also must satisfy a set of criteria specific to it, known as Specific Programme Criteria (SPC).  The stipulations in the SPC chiefly concern curricular issues and qualifications of faculty. 

Mission Statement of the School

  1. Nurture creative and entrepreneurial leaders with broad-based and interdisciplinary education.
  2. Lead pioneering research and innovation, and translate them into solutions for a sustainable future.
  3. Enhance the profession, and contribute to the advancement of the nation and the enrichment of humanity.

SLOs by EAB

  1. Apply the knowledge of mathematics, natural sciences, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.​
  5. Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for the sustainable development.
  8. Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and economic decision-making, and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.


EEE PEOs & SPC  ||  IEM PEOs & SPC​

PEOs (EEE programme)

PEOs (IEM programme)

To produce graduates who have the following attributes 5 years after their graduation:

Competence – Solve complex engineering problems in information engineering and media in multidisciplinary settings, with deep technical competence enhanced through lifelong learning.

Creativity – Design new solutions for a dynamic world through critical thinking, with due considerations for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental needs. 

Character and Civic-mindedness– Discharge their professional responsibilities with integrity and self-discipline, underpinned by a good understanding of their roles in society.

Communication – Function effectively as a leader or member in diverse teams with good communication and interpersonal skills.

SPC by EAB (IEM programme)

The curriculum of the Bachelor of Engineering (Information Engineering and Media) programme must provide adequate theoretical grounding in the infocommunication (e.g., programming, computer hardware and software, communications and networking, and digital media processing) discipline such that graduates of the programme are capable of analyzing and designing complex systems containing hardware and software components.  The curriculum must also provide students with exposure to the artistic and creative processes of media creation and production.
