What You'll Learn

Year 1

Year 2

Year 3

  • Aircraft Electrical & Instrumentation Systems

    (4 Credit Units)

    The aim of this module is to introduce the fundamental concepts avionic interfacing techniques, electrical power systems and distribution, wiring practices and installations, and fundamentals of flight control as part of our efforts to meet the CAAS SAR-66 requirements of obtaining a license as a Licensed Aircraft Engineer. It also covers aspects of in-flight entertainment and other sub-systems to meeting the aforesaid requirements. The module will endeavor to bridge the gap between class room learning and actual working with the systems on an aircraft through hands-on laboratory work.

  • Aircraft Navigation & Surveillance Systems

    (5 Credit Units)

    This module introduces the theory of operations and functional descriptions of airborne navigation and surveillance systems. At the end of the module, students will acquire content knowledge and understanding of a range of air navigation and surveillance systems deployed on the commercial and general aviation aircraft. Key topics in this module include ADF, VOR, DME, ILS and MLS, Radar, ELT, TCAS, INS and GPS and avionics digital data-bus standards.

  • Integrated Real-world Project 5

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to integrate the knowledge learnt in the semester and apply to a real-world project and understand the relevance and application of the modules learnt. Students will work in teams and undertake the project development focusing on avionic system design, analysis and integration. On completion of the module, students will be able to apply the principles of flight control, avionic instruments, closed loop control system, PID Controllers and data analytics.

    This module will also imbue in students a sense of civic consciousness in the context of engineering and sustainability. It will develop students’ competencies in sustainable development, raise their awareness of sustainability in the context of society and the environment, and appreciate the impact engineering solutions may have on the environment.

  • Quality Systems & Analytics

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module prepares students to apply quality system management techniques and principles in their future workplace. Topics include Quality Systems and Audits, quality tools and techniques including the application of statistical software for process control, Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility, Hypothesis Testing, Design of Experiments, Statistical Process Control, and Mistake Proofing to optimize and improve products and processes. Process Capability Analysis, Lean Manufacturing for waste elimination and Six Sigma initiatives for defect reduction will also be discussed.

  • Project ID: Connecting the Dots^

    (4 Credit Units)
^ Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) modules account for 13 credit units of the diploma curriculum. They include modules in communication, innovation and world issues, as well as an interdisciplinary project. By bringing students from diverse diplomas together, the interdisciplinary project fosters collaboration to explore and propose solutions for real-world problems. IS aims to develop students to be agile and self-directed learners, ready for the future workplace.

Career Options & Further Studies

AEG is recognised by many established aerospace organisations, which gives you an advantage when exploring such careers. You can look forward to being employed in roles such as aircraft maintenance engineer apprentice, senior technician (component repair & overhaul – avionics or mechanical), quality engineer or planning supervisor. Also, AEG prepares you for modules in the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) Airworthiness Requirements (SAR 66) examinations to give you a head start in acquiring your license as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.

As an AEG graduate, you will be able to pursue an aerospace-related degree at the Singapore Institute of Technology, Singapore University of Social Sciences or overseas universities in Australia, New Zealand, USA and UK. Or you can choose to pursue related engineering degrees with advanced standing at local universities.

You can also enrol in various skills-deepening programmes or apply for the SkillsFuture Work-Study Post-Diploma Programme, if applicable, upon graduation.
