Want to explore the cutting-edge world of aerospace engineering and become an expert in advanced technologies?
The Diploma in Aerospace Engineering (DAE) gives you a head start in launching a career in this rapidly growing field.
What does the DAE have in store for you? You will gain a solid grounding in aircraft structural and engine maintenance and repair. You will also learn all about the strict aviation regulations that govern this global industry. Get ready for extensive hands-on training in our first-rate laboratories, which include a brand new hangar facility with actual aircraft.
Industry attachments with maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) companies will allow you to hone your technical skills. This real-world experience will help jump-start your career with leading aviation companies such as ST Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, Hawker Pacific, and Eurocopter.
Rapid growth in Singapore’s aerospace engineering sector is driving strong demand for skilled professionals to join the numerous maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) companies with operations here. The Diploma in Aerospace Engineering (DAE) will give you a head start in launching a career in this growing field.
You will gain a solid grounding in aircraft structural and engine maintenance and repair, as well as learn about the strict aviation regulations that govern this global industry. The curriculum incorporates extensive hands-on training in our first-rate laboratories, which include a brand new hangar facility with real aircrafts. Internships with MRO companies will allow you to hone your technical skills.
This programme will allow you to pursue a path to becoming a certified aircraft maintenance engineer as it is aligned to the Singapore Airworthiness Requirements Part 66 (SAR-66), which is stipulated by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore as a licensing requirement. As a DAE graduate, you will also be able to pursue further studies in mechanical or aerospace engineering at the university level.
With a solid foundation of technical skills, DAE graduates are well prepared for a wide range of high-flying careers with leading companies such as Eurocopter, Hawker Pacific, and Rolls-Royce. You will be able to pursue opportunities in roles such as:
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.
