What You Will Learn

Equip yourself with relevant knowledge and skills for a career in the aviation industry with the Diploma in Aviation Management (DAVM)!

The curriculum provides you with a broad base of knowledge in preparation for a diverse range of job roles such as terminal managers, flight dispatchers, cabin crew and pilots. You will learn about operational, commercial, safety and security management of the airport and airlines.

Immerse yourself in experiential learning through our DA40 and Virtual Aerodrome simulators, where you will manage aircraft flight controls and direct air traffic from a control tower. Our lecturers, with rich and varied industry experiences, design authentic lessons and enrich your learning through sharing their real-life work experiences during class.

Experience working in the aviation industry through DAVM’s Industry Immersion Programme with companies such as Jetstar Asia, SATS, dnata, Changi Airport Group, Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Youth Flying Club.

My three years in RP have equipped me with essential knowledge for university studies. It has enabled me to be a more confident person. RP’s PBL pedagogy has prepared me well to take on research assignments and presentations in NUS.
