Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics - Engineering Fundamentals Track

The Engineering Fundamentals Track (EFT) in the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree program is the first step to opening the door to continued engineering studies at an Embry-Riddle residential campus in the United States. Students in the EFT will receive the quality engineering instruction ERAU is known for without having to incur the full cost of pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a residential campus.

Through the EFT, students gain practical design experience using basic models and simulations. Students also get a strong foundation in math and physics.  Experienced faculty members provide plenty of first-hand knowledge and individual attention. Students also have the chance to work with fellow ERAU students throughout the program.

The EFT is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's latest offering for aspiring engineering students who want world-class educational opportunities that meet their needs in new and innovative ways.

At the end of the two-year program, the EFT gives the student the option to continue in the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree in Singapore or transfer to an Embry-Riddle residential campus in the United States and complete one of the following Bachelor of Science in Engineering degrees:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Software Engineering

Most of the courses in the Engineering Fundamentals Track are only offered during the day so it is ideal for a full-time student.  Courses are 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.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University offers the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics (BSA) through our newly formed partnership with ERC Institute. The ERC Institute partnership provides us with the ability to host students in a full-time and part-time classroom capacity. The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University BSA program in Singapore is the same program offered in the United States, Europe and online, with enhancements to satisfy the unique demands of aeronautics professionals in Singapore and the surrounding regions.

Full-Time (courses conducted during the day)

Students pursuing the BSA degree program Engineering Fundamentals Track at a full-time pace will take 3 courses each term. The 65 credit hour BSA Engineering Fundamentals Track is designed to be completed in 2 years. At the conclusion of the Engineering Fundamentals Track students can either finish the BSA degree in Singapore or transfer to an Embry-Riddle residential campus in the United States and complete a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree.

The cost of the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics (BSA) degree is dependent on the number of credits a student is required to take to complete the degree requirements.

Diploma Graduates / GCE “A” Level Students
Students entering the program with a diploma or GCE “A” level examination results can expect to receive some exemptions. Exemptions vary depending on the diploma and GCE “A” level subjects.

Current fees for the degree program can be found on our tuition page.

Secondary School Graduates / GCE “O” Level Students
Students entering the program without any exemptions will be required to take all 120 credits in the BSA degree or the required number of credits in the engineering degree should they decide to transfer to an Embry-Riddle residential campus in the United States. A secondary school graduate or GCE “O” level student can expect to pay SGD 63,000 for the entire BSA degree.

Current fees for the degree program can be found on our tuition page.
