The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aircraft Systems Engineering is a three-year direct honours programme, developed in collaboration with SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC), which provides extensive Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services to more than 80 international airlines and aerospace equipment manufacturers worldwide.

Built on an interdisciplinary curriculum that intersects engineering and science, the programme adopts a practical hands-on approach to produce theoretically-grounded and practice-oriented graduates for the aerospace and MRO industries.

Successful graduates from this programme will also be awarded a Certificate of Recognition (CoR) by SIAEC. This CoR certifies the successful completion of a SAR-147 Approved Basic Course during the degree programme. Graduates who decide to embark on a career as a Licensed Aircraft Engineer in Singapore will find this particularly useful and relevant as it is one of the requirements leading to the award of an Aircraft Maintenance Licence.

Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) provides students with the opportunity to undertake real work. Held over the span of eight months, it is designed to be more in-depth than a traditional internship. You will gain real work experience and apply the theories you learn in class with actual practice.

The curriculum will incorporate an intensive eight-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) at SIAEC.

Career Options
