he success of a development project depends largely on the effectiveness of the project manager and the-project team members who are involved in the project. Being a key member of the project team, it is important for the engineer to acquire the knowledge and skills of project management, so that they will be able to work closely with the project manager and contribute positively to the success of the projects.To achieve good quality construction works, it is important for the engineer to be able to manage the design process and supervise the construction work on site effectively. This course will also cover the effective management of design process by the engineers and effective supervision of construction works by the engineers and RTOs.This course will also cover the risk assessment and safety management of construction works, to provide a safe environment for all personnel working on site.In addition, this course will also touch on the skill sets required for managing projects overseas, particularly in China.

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

The regulatory requirement for Design-for-Safety (DfS) was enforced since August 2016. It requires stakeholders to work together to address foreseeable risks right from the conceptual design to the construction of the project. During the construction stage, the DfS review meetings will involve the design & supervision team from the Consultants and construction team from the Contractor. They will participate in reviewing safety and health risks relating to design and propose mitigation measures for implementation.

Given the nature of most building and construction work, in particular increasingly its specialisation and the use of technically demanding and complex procedures, personnel such as designers, project managers, contractors, subcontractors and supervisory staff are all likely at serious risk of falling short and face with claims. This course is organised to prepare stake-holders including building owners, developers, builders, specialist builders, architects, engineers, project managers and such supervisory personnel as Qualified Persons, Site Supervisors, Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers on the understanding of liabilities and duties in regulatory, design, construction and supervision aspects of building and civil engineering works by glimpsing at some of the well-known decided cases.

The construction industry is important to Singapores economic growth, contributing nearly 5% of GDP in 2015. During construction, however, projects could pose a significant risk to environmental health, potentially causing noise pollution or the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. Construction practices that inadequately address these issues can have damaging implications, such as adversely affecting the health and well-being of workers on-site and neighbouring communities. A balance between operational and environmental concerns is therefore crucial to ensure that timely completion of projects does not come at the cost of endangering our health and environment. The scope of this course will cover foundational concepts relating to noise and vector-borne diseases, as well as key sources and health impacts relating to noise pollution and vector-borne diseases from construction sites. Management and control measures to address these concerns will also be discussed.

Building and Construction Authority

Civil Engineers are highly demanded in Singapore. In fact, Civil engineering is vital to Singapores drive to creating a better built environment and liveable city. The development of mega infrastructure projects as well as re-shaping Singapores city landscape will require highly qualified engineers trained in civil discipline. As we build higher and dig deeper underground, there is high prospects for Civil Engineers^ to design, plan, build, manage and oversee the development of infrastructure/building projects.This degree programme is designed to allow both GCE 'A' level and diploma graduates a pathway to pursue a rewarding career in the built environment.
