University of Glasgow

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aerospace Systems

Virtually all modern aircraft, from airliners to micro unmanned systems, rely on complex and comprehensive onboard systems. In this programme, you will be required to bring together concepts from aeronautical, electrical and system engineering to understand how these systems are designed, implemented and operate, as well as their effect on the operation, performance and safety of aerospace vehicles.

In this programme, you will study topics including aerospace dynamics and control, flight mechanics, aircraft performance, and avionics systems. You will also have the opportunity to visit Glasgow where you will carry out a team project to design, build and flight test your own unmanned lighter-than-air vehicle.

Career Opportunities
Aerospace Systems Engineers will acquire knowledge in manned and unmanned flight systems as well as mechanics and dynamics of flight vehicles. Possible career opportunities include aeronautics, defence, payload and electronics development.

Students studying in the University of Glasgow (UofG) degree programmes are required to complete a four-week attachment in Glasgow at the home campus of the University of Glasgow, U.K., where they will undertake a 10-credit group design/practical module, experience a different culture and interact with students there. Some industrial visits and guest lectures may be organised by the University of Glasgow. The estimated cost ranges from S$4,500* to S$5,500*.

Note: Estimated costs are dependent on the prevailing currency exchange rate and flight ticket prices.

“OIP is an eye-opener for me as I have not been exposed to other culture and ways of life. It is a good experience to be able to work with current students in Glasgow and sharing knowledge” -- Randall Tan, Mechatronics

“It was an unforgettable and eye-opening experience to see the lovely culture of Glasgow; the friendly people and slower pace of life. I was also in awe of the serenity and breath taking beauty of Scotland. It will be forever etched in my mind.” -- Ziyi Poh, Mechanical Design Engineering

“Sharing the summer of 2012 in Glasgow was definitely the highlight of the year. Being in a land where the sun rises at 4am and sets at 10pm, I was amazed by what Glasgow had to offer. The University, too, was a sight to behold, with its exterior representing a castle as though carved out from the movies. I am very proud to be a student of the University, and words just cannot describe how fortunate I was to have had this experience.’ – Khairul Anwar Bin Ahmad Samson, Mechatronics
