Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics

Introduction

As Singapore’s aeronautics industry continues to grow, so do job opportunities in the field. But just what exactly is aeronautics? Basically, it can be defined as the science of flight. Designing an airplane or other type of flying machine, manufacturing them, operating them, maintaining them. It all falls under aeronautics. That means you could be anything from a scientist to a technician to an engineer or pilot. No matter which type of aeronautics career you want, a good place to start is by getting your Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics (BSA).

Awarded by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, offered by ERC Institute (ERCI), the 120-credit hour degree program offers courses in human factors, security, aviation safety, occupational safety and health, air traffic control, aircraft maintenance and aeronautical science. Several degree minors allow you to tailor your degree to your particular interests and career goals.

Through the BSA program, you can:

  • Gain a broad knowledge base of aeronautics
  • Be prepared for becoming a pilot, air traffic controller or regulator, and more
  • Benefit from faculty who are experienced industry professionals themselves
Course Delivery

This full-time program is offered in an intimate classroom setting where you get one-on-one attention from faculty members and the chance to interact with and learn from fellow students.
