You want to join the aerospace industry. We want to give you a head start in launching your career in this fast-expanding field.
The Diploma in Aerospace Engineering exposes you to the inner workings of the aerospace engineering sector. Our first-rate laboratories are where you will be drilled in the strict aviation regulations and pick up experience working in an actual hangar. You will get an all-rounded grounding in aircraft structural and aircraft engine maintenance and repair that will help jump-start your career in one of the many Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) companies such as Rolls-Royce, Hawker Pacific, and Eurocopter.
The Diploma in Aerospace Engineering is aligned to the Singapore Airworthiness Requirements (SAR-66), attesting to its rigorous industry standards. SAR-66 is stipulated by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore as part of the training for aircraft maintenance engineers.
This course will equip you with a strong foundation in aerospace engineering sufficient to enter one of the multiple Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) companies in Singapore. In addition, the programme will allow you to pursue further studies in mechanical or aerospace engineering at university.
Exposure to the fine mechanisms of the aerospace engineering industry takes place at RP’s advanced laboratories. The latest ARCH facility – a real-sized hangar – will train you to familiarise with strict aviation regulations and protocols while providing you a backdrop to experience working in an actual hangar environment.
RP’s aerospace engineering graduates have a solid technical foundation to launch a career in aerospace engineering and its related fields
in companies such as Rolls-Royce, Hawker Pacific, Eurocopter, and Pratt & Whitney. Some job opportunities in this sector include:
As graduates many opportunities of further education into local and overseas institutions are available. Our program is designed to meet the requirements for advanced standing into these IHL’s (Institutions of Higher Learning). The program provides you diversity so that you may pursue further education in other engineering trades such as mechanical and electrical engineering if you so wish.
