The Bachelor of Engineering Aerospace Systems is a broad-based multi-disciplinary programme with a wide spectrum of courses in avonics, aerodynamics/propulsion and aerospace management targeted for the MRO and applied research and development sector of the aviation industry.
In addition, our partnership with a world renowned aerospace academic institution, Cranfield University together with our local industry partners such as ST Aerospace and Republic of Singapore Air Force ensures that our curriculum stays relevant to the industry.
Furthermore, our approach towards education has always hinged on the philosophy of "learn in class at night, apply at work the next morning". And this is only possible because our teaching staff are in touch with the cutting edge of the industry. We collaborate with industry and engage many of their senior management to develop and teach in our courses, exposing the students to the best practices in the industry within the classroom.
Having said that, we do have a number of unique courses embedded in our programmes which essentially provide a level of exposure not commonly found elsewhere. For example:
A Primer on Aerospace and Aviation at Cranfield University
This is a 5-day, full-time course conducted in Cranfield University whereby the students are taken up on a flight sortie in a customised Jetstream 31 airplane to learn how to evaluate flight performance of an aircraft. The other parts of the programme cover aspects of wind tunnel testing, airport operations, accident and emergency handling, accident investigation and the effects of bird strikes on aircraft in flight, all taught by renowned academic staff from Cranfield University.
