Bachelor of Aerospace System

Programme Educational Objectives

SUSS aims to provide continuing tertiary education to students to meet the demand for professionals in various industries. The Bachelor of Engineering – Aerospace Systems (BEHAS) programme is intended to train graduates for work in the aviation industry. Its multi-disciplinary academic framework recognises the need to emphasise the depth as well as breadth in its curriculum to lay a strong foundation for the preparation of the graduates to meet employment expectations that vary in skill set from one end to the other end of the aviation industry value chain. The programme educational objectives (PEOs) of the BEHAS programme are to ensure that graduates will:
  1. Be educated in a broad spectrum of subjects in the fields of mathematics, IT and science, as well as the specialisation in chosen areas of aerospace systems engineering;
  2. Possess the requisite knowledge and skills to define and solve multi-disciplinary complex problems, in a holistic manner;
  3. Become independent learners that will prepare them for life-long learning and diverse careers;
  4. Be able to communicate effectively using different media (orally, in written, graphically);
  5. Be ethically and professionally responsible.

Programme Learning Outcomes

Programme educational objectives (PEOs), which are occasionally referred to as goals or standards, are broad statements that describe the overarching knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviours that the Bachelor of Engineering – Aerospace Systems (BEHAS) programme targets with its educational experiences. PEOs describe the attributes that students should be able to demonstrate after graduation.

After the PEOs have been established, several specific, measurable student learning outcomes (SLOs) for each PEO are created. SLOs are stated in terms of what the student should be able to demonstrate as a result of the learning experiences provided by the programme. They are action-oriented and cognitively appropriate for a particular programme intellectual level. SLOs are measurable indicators of the PEOs.

The BEHAS programme provides the necessary training to fulfil the skills, attributes and qualities requirements of an electronics engineer. The programme will enable the graduate to meet the PEOs through the following SLOs:

  1. Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and engineering specialisation to the solution of complex aerospace systems problems;
  2. Problem Analysis – Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences;
  3. Design / Development of Solutions – Design solution for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations;
  4. Investigation – Conduct investigations of complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions;
  5. Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations;
  6. Communication – Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with the society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions;
  7. Life Long Learning – Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change;
  8. Environment and Sustainability – Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development;
  9. Individual and Team Work – Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings;
  10. Ethics – Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice;
  11. The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice;
  12. Project Management and Finance – Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
