Overview

Aerospace Electronics are used in modern aircraft such as the Airbus A380, Boeing 787 and fighter jets for flight management, control, instrumentation, communication, navigation and power generation. You will learn how these Electrical and Electronic systems work through theory and practical hands-on lessons.

The broad-based curriculum will equip you with the skills and knowledge to perform a wide spectrum of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul activities in the aerospace industry as well as to prepare you for further studies with advanced standing in both local and overseas universities.

The course will also give you a head start in gaining the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer license, issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

Course Highlights

  • Three different course tracks to suit your abilities and interests:
    • Track 1: A balanced curriculum combining theory and practical
    • Track 2: A practical-oriented curriculum focusing on the development of innovative multi-disciplinary projects under the Engineering Academy
    • Track 3: A 22-week internship curriculum in leading aerospace companies such as ST Aerospace Systems, Defence Science Organisation, Thales Solution Asia and MAJ Aviation
  • An additional option to take the Certificate in Aviation Management will allow you to venture into Airport Operations and Management, a key area for growth in the region.
  • Another additional option to take a half-year program in "Airline Pilot's Theory" that gives you a head-start in a career as a pilot.
  • 60% of the cohort completed their 6-week Industrial Training Programs, which is partially funded by SP, in established Aerospace organisations and universities in countries such as China and Taiwan.
