As the leading aviation hub in Asia Pacific, aerospace continues to be an important industry for Singapore. With Changi Airport Terminal 5 set to be one of the world’s largest airport terminals when completed in the mid-2030s, Singapore continues to ride on future growth trends in aviation.
Regardless of your field of study, you can have a role to play in shaping an exciting future of air travel. Fresh graduates who are keen to be part of this transformation can be involved in many ways such as planning, finance, communications, talent management, customer service, technology development, manufacturing, or operations.
Both major aircraft manufacturers and start-ups are actively revolutionising aircraft concepts. In response to the mounting pressure to decarbonise air travel, innovations are looking into alternative fuels or electric power to invent new modes of intercity and intracity air travel. While these changes will be gradually introduced to the mass market over several years, we are already witnessing the development of flying prototypes and the safety certification of urban air mobility vehicles.
With the development of new aircraft concepts, there is also an increasing emphasis on the overall air travel experience. Improvements in health, safety, and security policies, combined with automation and technology, have the potential to make travel experiences more seamless and pleasant for passengers.
CAREER PROSPECTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
As Singapore continues to be one of the world’s leading aerospace maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) hub and a market leader in the Asia-Pacific region, career prospects in the industry continues to be bright.
Aerospace companies are developing in areas such as big data analytics to monitor aircraft health, predict maintenance schedules, optimise fuel consumption, and minimise on-ground delays to help airlines and passengers save time and costs.
Fresh graduates can look forward to joining a dynamic profession that offers opportunities in long-term growth areas such as digital services, autonomous flight systems and sustainable aircraft propulsion as companies work together to reduce aviation’s impact on the environment.
