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).
