Programme Overview

University of Glasgow
Note: With effect from AY2019/2020, this programme will be offered as a joint degree by SIT and the University of Glasgow. Find out more about the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aerospace Engineering.

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 operated, 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.

Overseas Immersion Programme

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.

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.
