What will I learn?

Internships with leading companies such as ST Aerospace, Thales Solutions Asia and Airbus Helicopters or participation in industry projects

Curriculum aligned to CAAS Airworthiness Requirements offers a head-start in getting the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence

Curriculum also aligned to the Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) ground examinations requirement

A Minor in Business Management offers exciting career and degree opportunities

Fancy getting inside the cockpit to try navigating an aircraft? Or meddling with the in-flight entertainment and control systems on board modern planes? If these are what you have always been looking forward to, look no further than the Diploma in Aerospace Electronics (AE).

The course will provide you with a strong engineering foundation as well as a firm grounding in the design and application of electronics in aviation. You will also get to study the principles of flight and learn to fly an aircraft using a realistic flight simulator. If you are game enough, you could even sign up for national competitions such as the Singapore Amazing Flying Machine Competition and overseas competitions such as the International Unmanned Flying Car Competition in South Korea!

In the first two years, we will strengthen your engineering knowledge with modules such as Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Mechanics and Computer Programming. You will also gain an overview of the avionics systems such as a plane’s radar and global positioning system, and learn how to maintain an aircraft’s electronics. In your final year, you will learn about the various sophisticated systems on an aircraft, such as electrical and instrumentation, and navigation and communication systems.

You will then put your knowledge and skills into practice with either an industry project or an internship with industry leaders such as ST Aerospace, Airbus Helicopters, Thales Solutions Asia, Rockwell Collins and ST Electronics.

Careers

Over 100 aerospace companies serving global and regional markets are based in Singapore. With such bright prospects in the aerospace and electronics industries, you can take your pick from jobs in areas such as research and development, sales and marketing, engineering, and maintenance and support.

AE will also prepare you for modules in the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) Airworthiness Requirements (SAR 66) examinations so that you can get your Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s licence much sooner!

You can even consider a career as a pilot as our curriculum is aligned to the Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) ground examinations requirement.

Further studies

As an AE grad, you will be able to pursue an avionics or aerospace-related degree at the Singapore Institute of Technology, SIM University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Asia, Singapore) or overseas universities in Australia, New Zealand, USA and UK.

Or you can choose to pursue electrical, electronics and related engineering degrees with advanced standing at prestigious local universities like National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University.
