SP is the first to launch the Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering (DARE) course in Singapore in 2002. Since then, the DARE course has become one of the most sought-after Engineering diplomas in Singapore.

The course provides a solid foundation in Mechanical Engineering for subsequent specialisation in aircraft-related modules. Our premier status in education has been forged through sturdy bonds with prestigious aerospace organisations. These include, but is not limited to, Singapore Technologies Engineering Aerospace, the Republic of Singapore Air Force, Singapore Airlines Engineering Company, Pratt & Whitney and Bombardier Aerospace Services Singapore.

You will get to learn in a 4,660 square metres state-of-the-art training facility: the Aerohub that simulates your future working environment. Training facilities includes four aircraft and two full-motion simulators, one of which was developed and built in-house. Teaching and Learning is based on the proven CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) framework and Design Thinking methodology.

As an official training partner for ST Engineering Aerospace under CAAS Approved Maintenance Training Organisation (SAR-147), this course will prepare you well to work in the aerospace industry and help you gain an advanced standing in the local and international universities you wish to further your studies in.


For those who aspire to be an aircraft pilot or CAAS-certified drone pilot, there are opportunities to take electives or extra courses to pursue your passion.

In Singapore Polytechnic, we prepare our learners to be life ready, work ready, world ready for the transformation of Singapore.
