Overview

Overview

SP is the first polytechnic to offer an aeronautical engineering diploma course which is the most sought after engineering course since its launch in 2002. The Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering (DARE) provides a solid grounding in mechanical engineering followed by specialisations in aircraft-related modules. Our premier status in education has forged sturdy bonds with prestigious aerospace organisations, including the Republic of Singapore Air Force, Singapore Airlines Engineering Company, Singapore Technologies Aerospace and Pratt & Whitney.

Our state-of-the-art laboratories simulate real working environments that include a fighter jet, twin-engine general purpose aircraft and helicopter, and our in-house designed and built full-motion flight simulator.

Course Highlights

  • A new AERO HUB to facilitate specialised training on aircraft, R&D on unmanned lying machines, flight simulation, propulsion systems, composite materials and operations of various aircraft systems
  • Aligned to Singapore Airworthiness Requirements (SAR 66)
  • Sit for the SAR 66 Basic Examinations for licensing Aircraft Maintenance Engineer while still in SP
  • Overseas Industrial Attachment Programmes at aerospace companies or universities
  • Semester-long project with aviation companies
  • Obtain additional certification under our Diploma-Plus in Aviation Management
SPACe Programme

Selected DARE students may challenge themselves by embarking on multi-disciplinary projects under the new Singapore Polytechnic Aero Challenge (SPACe) Programme..
Fast-track to an Honours degree in Aeronautical Engineering or Aerospace Systems in two years:

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and University of Glasgow (UOG) have teamed up with Singapore Polytechnic to offer and conduct the "Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aerospace Systems" and "Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering" at Singapore Polytechnic Campus. The UOG has accredited the DARE course for its graduates to read either one of its two Honours Degree programmes in the shortest period of two years.

"I really enjoyed the time spent in the DARE course. The engaging lectures and nature of the modules in the DARE course fuelled my passion in engineering. Not only that, the availability of grounded aircraft in Singapore Polytechnic makes visualisation of concepts easy. I was equipped with a good foundation in understanding engineering concepts, making the transition from polytechnic to university exceptionally smooth."
