Integrative Built Environment Centre Launched in Singapore

The Second Minister for Education officiated the launch of Temasek Polytechnic’s Integrative Built Environment Centre (IBEC). The most comprehensive set-up of its kind in a polytechnic, IBEC covers a wide range of related domains, specialising in areas such as digital architecture, intelligent building systems and smart facility management – areas identified in the Industry Transformation Map for the Built Environment sector. It plays an important part in the ecosystem to build core engineering and skills in these key transformation areas through R&D, PET curricula and CET upskilling programmes.

The Centre, which promotes collaborative R&D, and multi-disciplinary teaching and learning, is an important part of TP’s support for the Singapore Green Plan and the BuildSG movement. By providing training in the latest technologies, IBEC will help advance the nation’s push for sustainable development, and the transformation of the built environment sector. The Singapore International Facilities Management Association (SIFMA) also recognises IBEC as a key training and research centre for the industry.

Interdisciplinary Learning & Training

IBEC is a centre designed for interdisciplinary learning and promotes collaborations among students, staff members and industry partners from diverse capabilities. The Centre will cater to the learning needs of TP’s pre-employment training (PET) students across the fields of engineering, design and IT, as well as continuing education and training (CET) students seeking to upskill. Altogether, around 1,000 PET and 1,000 CET students will train at IBEC annually.

Training conducted at IBEC will focus on different aspects of sustainability, such as issues related to climate change, energy efficiency, green building design & smart facility management, and even sustainable product design and packaging. IBEC will be the training ground for a wide range of short courses, specialist diploma courses, as well as SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes.

IBEC will provide both PET and CET students with a live and authentic environment to apply their skills and knowledge. It will enable “plug and play” for learning with technology and data-driven facility management systems so that students fully understand the importance of timely interventions within a real environment that mirrors the sector’s needs.

Industry Training available for CET students:

  • Fire Alarm Systems & Maintenance
  • Fire Safety Manager Course

Industry Partners

At IBEC, TP is collaborating with key organisations ranging from government agencies to trade associations and companies, who play a critical role in sustainable development, and the transformation of the built environment sector in Singapore. Some of these industry partners will provide the institute’s students with internship opportunities, real-world project collaborations, as well as exposure to the latest technologies.
