Importance of ECG

One critical configuration that we need to do is to ensure that our system takes into account the interests and aptitudes of our students. This is because we are simply better at doing what we like. Notwithstanding this, many of our youths go with the flow, choosing their paths in higher education based on where their grades can take them, or where their friends are going. Our young need guidance and help to discover themselves, their strengths and interests.

Advanced Elective Module (AEM), Aerospace Fundamentals with Flight Simulation at Singapore Polytechnic
(13 - 16 March)


To enrich secondary school’s curriculum with greater diversity, secondary schools, in collaboration with polytechnics, have begun offering AEMs under the guidance of Ministry of Education (MOE). Taught by polytechnic lecturers, AEMs can help enhance the learning experience of secondary school students through practice-oriented approaches. The experience will help them to discover their strengths and interests and have a taste of how polytechnic courses are conducted.
This year, 18 of our students signed up for the AEM Aerospace Fundamentals with Flight Simulation at Singapore Polytechnic from 13 to 16 March.

It was an enriching experience for them as they learnt how to control the system and fly an aeroplane on a flight simulator, learnt about the principles of flight; how aircrafts defy gravity and fly thousands of miles above sea level, learnt about aircraft parts and related systems through hands-on at the labs and learnt about our local growing aerospace industry and career prospects.
