The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aerospace Engineering jointly offered by SIT and the University of Glasgow will be accepting its last intake of students in AY2023.

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aerospace Engineering is a three-year direct honours programme jointly offered by SIT and the University of Glasgow.

This programme will equip students with the specific skill set necessary to meet the growing manpower demands in the local and global aerospace industry with a specific emphasis on autonomous aerial vehicles. Students will be equipped with sound foundations in engineering through appropriate mathematics and physics courses, upon which specific unmanned aerial systems knowledge will be built.

Graduates from the programme will be equipped with general knowledge of aerodynamics, flight physics, programming and composite materials coupled with specialised knowledge in guidance, navigation and control systems, unmanned propulsion systems, data analytics, risk and reliability and aviation legislation. They will be innovative individuals who are able to apply their technical and practical knowledge in the development of novel approaches, solutions and implementations of unmanned aerial systems.

Programme Highlights

  • Application-oriented training in aerospace engineering in Singapore’s context
  • Heavy emphasis on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) applications
  • Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP) at the University of Glasgow
  • Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP)

Integrated Work Study Programme

In the last year of the degree programme, students will get to apply the theoretical knowledge gained and refine their technical skills through an eight-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) in local and overseas companies, working in the areas of unmanned systems and aerospace engineering.

Overseas Immersion Programme

The programme includes a mandatory Overseas Immersion Programme, during which students will undertake a group project as well as witness industry best practices through industrial site visits in Glasgow.

Career Options

Graduates can look forward to working in, but not limited to, the following occupational fields: 

  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
  • Aircraft Engine Design and Servicing 
  • Defense Contractors
  • Air Traffic Control
  • Design Engineer (Avionics Production and Maintainability)
  • Airworthiness and Quality Specialist
