Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics - Engineering Fundamentals Track

Engineering Lab

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.
