Diploma-Plus Programmes

The School of Engineering offers Dip-Plus modules to eligible students to prepare and strengthen their foundation for university courses or to enhance their technical capability through industry certification.

They will undertake their chosen modules in addition to their diploma modules during the course of their study. Students who successfully complete the Dip-Plus modules will receive a Dip-Plus transcript indicating the modules, hours and grades upon graduation.

  • EGAV01 Structured Engineering Design for Electronics Systems (45 hours)

    This module provides the students with hands-on and in-depth knowledge about using structured engineering design process to solve real-world problems. This module focuses on developing hierarchical applications that are scalable, readable, and maintainable. This contextual-based module will introduce students to the core concepts of advanced instrumentation through authentic projects. Students will explore and engage in a variety of hands-on design projects that will address trade-offs, optimization, and interconnectivity. They will learn how to design and implement their projects through the use of National Instruments' (NL) LabVIEW Graphical System Design (GSD) software, the NI-myDAQ or NI-ELVIS II+, and data acquisition devices. This module will prepare students for the National Instruments Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer(CLAD) certification to enhance their proficiency in systems design.
  • EGAN03 Network Services (30 hours)

    This module teaches students to install and operate an enterprise branch network. The module presents networking fundamentals using the TCP/IP and OSI seven-layer model concepts. Structured cabling systems, networking fundamentals and PC network troubleshooting will be covered. The module includes online assessments that allow students to measure their progress throughout the learning experience.
