BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

TUMAsia_WebsiteBanners_2020-01

The SIT-Technical University of Munich (TUM) joint degree programme in Chemical Engineering (CE) is the first and only course in Singapore to equip budding chemical engineers with relevant chemical Industry 4.0 skillsets, to meet the current and future needs of the chemical industry. This four-year honours degree programme aims to address the growing manpower demands of the local and global chemical industry by training students with deep skills in data engineering and additive manufacturing through intensive laboratory experiments and analysis.

TUM Rankings:

  • #2 University in Germany for Chemistry Subject (Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022 by Subject)
  • Produced 6 Nobel Prize winners to date

Students will have a choice of specialisation in their third year in Data Engineering or Additive Manufacturing. The new joint programme will be the first and only course in Singapore equipping budding chemical engineers with relevant chemical Industry 4.0 skillsets, which aims to manufacture products through intelligent processes. These include digital value chain integration, seamless asset lifecycle management, and business-to-plant production control. Students in the additive manufacturing specialisation will learn 3D-printing design, formulation and engineering principles. This new programme thus trains future chemical engineers to integrate digital systems with smart or additive manufacturing seamlessly and effectively.

A-LEVELS

  • A Level A/H2 Mathematics, and an A/H2 Science subject (Biology, Chemistry or Physics)
  • Obtained a pass in General Paper or Knowledge & Inquiry in the same sitting, while satisfying Mother Tongue Language (MTL)* requirements.

In general, applicants presenting Singapore-Cambridge A level results are not required to submit the A level certificates. However, for the SIT-TUM Chemical Engineering and Electronics and Data Engineering programmes, it will be mandatory to submit the O and A level transcripts during application, and the transcripts, School Graduation Certificate, and other documents^ during matriculation. More details will be shared with incoming students.

*GCE A Level/IB applicants need to fulfil the language requirements as stipulated by the German Higher Education System

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE

Applicants must meet the following requirements:

1. The IB must be obtained after attending at least twelve uninterrupted (continuous) years of full-time education. The 6 examination subjects taken must conform to IB conditions stipulated by the German Higher Education system:

  • 2 languages at A or B level (one of which at least must be an advanced foreign language studied uninterruptedly as “Language A” or “Language B HL” )
  • 1 Natural Science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
  • 1 Mathematics subject (Mathematical Methods or Mathematics HL or Further Mathematics together with Mathematics HL)
  • 1 social Science Subject (History, Geography, Economics, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Anthropology, Business and Management, and Global Politics)
  • The 6th compulsory subject may be one of the above or one of the following subjects recognised by the IB: Art/Design, Music, Theatre Arts, Film, Literature and Performance, or another modern foreign language: Latin, Classical Greek, General Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Environmental Systems, Computer Science, Design Technology, World Religions, Sports exercise and health science.
  • Of the 6 subjects, 3 have to be Higher Level (HL) subjects, and 3 at the Standard Level (SL). The Higher Level (HL) subjects must contain 1 Mathematics subject.
  • All subjects must be taken uninterruptedly (continuously), over two years.

Candidates have to attain a minimum IB Grade of 4 on the six compulsory subjects. Where an IB grade of 3 is awarded in one subject only, it is possible to compensate for this if another subject taken at the same level has been awarded at least an IB Grade 5, and an aggregate of 24 points has been attained.

2.  If the conditions according to point 1 are not fulfilled, an additional examination in accordance with the Hochschulzugangsqualifikation* (high school entrance qualification) is required. Recognition as a subject-related University entrance qualification is also possible by a successful university study of one year.

*IB applicants who do not fulfil the conditions in point 1 may take the “Studienkolleg” for 1 year and write an examination afterwards called “Feststellungsprüfung”. The “Feststellungsprüfung” is in accordance with the “Framework Regulations for Admission to University Education with Foreign Educational Qualifications”, for studying at the “Studienkolleg”.
