Bachelor of Engineering Science in Aerospace Operations (BEngSc AeroOps)
This is a professional degree programme offered jointly by the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and Air Transport Training College (ATTC), the Professional Development Centre of the Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE). This unique degree programme equips graduates to take advantage of expanding professional opportunities in the fast growing aerospace industry in Singapore and the region.
Bachelor of Engineering Science in Aerospace Operations is a 2 year part time degree programme. Building on an established SIAE-UTS educational partnership in Aerospace Operations, the BEngSc was launched concurrently in Sydney and Singapore in year 2000.

BEngSc AeroOps enhances the career prospects of:
BEngSc graduates have the option of continuing their professional development through studies at UTS leading to a four-year Bachelor of Engineering degree, a five-year Bachelor of Engineering Diploma in Engineering Practice combined award, or combined five-year engineering and business degrees.
Alternatively, BEngSc graduates may enter postgraduate courses in engineering and/or business management including the Master of Engineering Management and Master of Business Administration programs.
The BEngSc AeroOps is built on a core program common to all UTS degrees in engineering. It provides a comprehensive grounding in three main areas:-
The course comprises of two components, namely Core and Field of Practice subjects. For BEngSc candidates receiving maximum credit point advanced standing on admission, they will enrol in 24 credit points of core and 24 credit points of field of practice subjects.
Student - Lecturer Ratio
The ratio of Lecturer to Students is 1:32 for theory classes.
Learning And Teaching Methods
All classes will be a mix of lectures and project works.
The course is offered in a mixture of part-time study modes with a strong component of face-to-face teaching and self directed learning. Each subject takes 8 weeks during which there will be 18 hours of lectures, usually given by UTS academic staff together with up to 24 hours of tutorials given by tutors from ATTC. Comprehensive course materials and study guides are provided.
ATTC courses are assessed by written examination and project works.
The basic admission requirements is a polytechnic engineering diploma or equivalent. Students with that qualification may be granted a maximum credit recognition equivalent to 96 credit points out of the required 144 credit points for a BEngSc. The typical student getting the maximum advanced standing can expect to complete the course by part-time study in approximately four semesters. Those without a diploma can also be considered based on their performance in other courses and professional experience. Students must also be competent in written and spoken English and the use of basic information technology tools.
Upon successful completion and passed all necessary modules assessments, written examinations and project works. Graduates will be awarded the 'Bachelor of Engineering Science in Aerospace Operations' by University of Technology, Sydney Australia
Recognition of Prior Learning for BEngSc and Articulation into Bachelor of Engineering (BE)
The two year BEngSc course consists of 144 credit points of course work. The maximum advanced standing for holders of Singapore polytechnic diploma holders, or for candidates with appropriate course work experience, is 96 credit points. Candidates with significant science and engineering background, for example Singapore polytechnic diploma holders, can fulfill the requirements of the Aerospace Operations Major by completing specialist subjects in technical communications, operations and management. BEngSc graduates will need to complete at least one year of full time study at UTS to secure a Bachelor of Engineering award.

Highlights of Field of Practice Subjects
Aerospace Operations: Overview of the Aviation Industry
This is the first subject in the Aerospace Operations major. It provides an overview of aerospace operations in the aviation industry. Aerospace operations are not seen as unique but as a particular example of a transport system which operates in a commercial, economic and regulatory environment.
Topics include: defining the aerospace industry; what is meant by aerospace operations; historical evolution of air transport with trends in transport aircraft design; fuels; supersonic transport; travel away from earth; energy and materials as key factors; aspects of management and business practice; and an introduction to strategic planning applied at the company and national levels in the context of technological change.
Aerospace Design Processes
This subject provides students with an understanding and appreciation of the design process in general, with particular reference to the aerospace industry. Engineering technologists are primarily concerned with the management of technology. Students must, however be aware of the design process and the constraints and compromises involved, and this subject gives them that. Topics include: the principles of design; design philosophies; design practice; design for strength; mechanical element design; introduction to FEA and CFD; concurrent engineering; design for maintainability; and aircraft design philosophies and implications, including basic aircraft strength, systems analysis and materials applications.
Managing Aerospace Processes
This subject provides students with a global view of aerospace operations, and allows them to contribute to aerospace operations through integration of material covered throughout the course. The subject considers aerospace as part of an integrated management system that designs, produces and maintains aerospace systems as part of the total transport system. Aerospace operations are not seen as unique but as a particular example of a transport system which operates in a commercial, economic and regulatory environment. Areas covered include aviation regulations and safety; systems engineering theory, technical and quality control approaches, supply chains, organisation and layout and risk assessment as applied to aerospace operations.
This subject also integrates material from other elements of the course to give an overview of the management of aerospace operations.
This subject provides students with skills and understanding of Airline Operations. Topics include: Aircraft Performance, Weight and Balance, Aircraft Evaluation, Flight Planning, ETOPS, Fuel Conservation, Basic Jet Engine, Characteristics and Aircraft Noise Regulations. The emphasis on effective communications and computer literacy will also be reinforced. These activities are central to the overall objectives of the course and facilitate the understanding required by professionals in the airline industry.
