Aeronautical Technology

The Aero Hub houses a collection of Aircraft Systems and Power Plant for hands-on learning and application.


  • Full Motion Flight Simulation with interchangeable F16 Cockpit and Boeing 737 Commercial Dual Control Column Cockpit
  • Mini-size Afterburner Section for Gas Turbine Jet Engine
  • New VTOL UAV system
  • Fleet of aircraft - A4SU Super Hawk Aircraft, Cessna 310 Aircraft, Cessna 172 and UH1H Helicopter


The Bioengineering Hub studies the behaviours and characteristics of the human body by precisely measuring bio-mechanical parameters such as force, pressure distribution, deformation, motion and physiological signals. An array of R&D instruments and software are available to build animated models of the human form. Bone stress and muscle activity can be studied to improve ergonomics in industrial design as well as prevent injury in sportswear and athletic equipment.

Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) & Simulation

The CAE & Simulation Lab provides advanced simulation support to various industries to predict structural and thermal/flow behaviours subjected to "what-if" scenarios. Coupled with instrumented testing and material characterisation, the simulation capabilities have been greatly enhanced to moving towards realistic simulations as well as to improve the robustness and reliability of the design.


  • CAE capabilities (linear or non-linear static, modal, dynamic frequency response, transient drop, flow and thermal analyses)
  • Structural Testing (Instrumented structural testing, material characterisation & modelling)
  • CAE Software (Abaqus, Femap/ NxNastran, CFDesign)
