Student Overseas Trips

Are you looking to expand your horizons and explore the world? Every year, SEG students participate in a variety of overseas trips to countries in Asia and beyond to broaden and diversify their learning experience.

Some trips focus on diploma-related learning while others focus on service learning. However, all of them will provide you with exposure to enriching experiences and abundant opportunities to learn from people in other countries.


2016 SOT Japan

Study Trip to National Institute of Technology, Akashi College with Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE) and Diploma in Green Building Energy Management (DGEM)

In September 2016, 24 SEG students from DEEE and DGEM benefitted greatly from an overseas trip to Osaka, Japan. They bonded and make friends with resident students at Akashi College.

The professors from Akashi College coordinated company visits to introduce the students to some of Japan’s most advanced technologies in automation, manufacturing, data computing, and biotechnology. This included tours of leading companies like Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. and K Computer in RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science.

Staff and students also visited the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, Abeno Life Safety Learning Center and Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN.

2016 SOT Taiwan

Study Trip to Taiwan with Diploma in Aerospace Engineering (DAE)

In March 2016, 24 students from DAE visited Taiwan; a seven-day student trip designed to enrich students and provide them with a greater understanding of the aerospace industry.

The students participated in fun and educational activities including site visits to established manufacturing plants, research centres, and educational institutes. Students had the opportunity to visit the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, the primary research and development institution of the Republic of China’s Ministry of National Defence.

The programme also included trips to the night markets and a cultural theme park, which gave students a taste of Taiwanese culture and traditions.


2015 SOT BKK

Study Trip to Bangkok, Thailand with Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE) and Diploma in Green Building Energy Management (DGEM) Students

In March 2015, 46 SEG students and three staff members went on an eight-day trip to Bangkok, Thailand where they were immersed in its local culture and gain new insights into the world of electrical and electronic engineering, and green building energy management.

Participants were able to deepen their knowledge in their chosen disciplines through visits to local companies and Rangsit University, one of Thailand’s top universities. SEG student representatives conducted a professional workshop on Designsparks PCB and Mechanical during a sharing seminar session at the university.

The students also gained a first-hand perspective on how cars are built and manufactured during an eye-opening site visit, and had a highly interesting time at the forensics museum.

2015 SOT Taiwan

Study Trip to Taiwan with Diploma in Aerospace Avionics (DAA) and Diploma in Aerospace Engineering (DAE)

In March 2015, a total of 47 aspiring aviation students gained a deeper appreciation of the industry through a study trip to Taiwan where they learnt more about future aviation technologies and how they can be better positioned to serve the global demands in air travel.

Over the course of seven days, participants visited maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities, as well as manufacturing plants and education institutions. There they gained a comprehensive understanding of the wide array of activities and processes involved in the aerospace industry.

These experiences served to help them better appreciate their classroom learning and widen their global perspective as an aviation practitioner.


2014 SOT China

Study trip to Beijing and Tianjin with Diploma in Aerospace Avionics (DAA)

In September 2014, 24 DAA students set off for a six-day trip to China for an exciting behind-the-scenes glimpse into the global aerospace industry.

In Tianjin, the group visited the historic Airbus Tianjin and saw how an A320 jetliner is assembled. The students also toured the classrooms, laboratories, workshops and hangars at Tianjin Sino-German Vocational Technical College and the Civil Aviation University of China.

In Beijing, students visited Ameco Beijing, the largest aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Company in China. At Beihang University, the first university in China to specialise in aerospace technology, students got a tour of the campus and visited the fascinating Chinese Aviation Museum.

2014 SOT Australia

Study trip to Sydney with Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE)

In March 2014, 24 DEEE students jetted off to Sydney for a first-hand peek at the emerging global trends in electronics engineering.

At the University of Technology, the group learned about the various engineering courses on offer and took a tour of their facilities. At the Australia Film TV and Radio School, a guided tour revealed that this is the only National Institution offering degrees to prepare students for careers in the broadcasting industry.

The group also visited the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Australia’s leading educator for the 3D Animation, Game Development, and Visual FX industries. Students were also offered a rare opportunity to attend a one-hour workshop in 3D creation using MAYA software in which three of them were given prizes for producing the best animations.
