understand that not many universities offer aerospace/aeronaut as an undergrad degree to start with. this subject is more commonly done postgrad. so u'll find that many unis offer sth like mech eng w/ aerospace minor.

i've reserved a place at ntu aerospace, if i do accept it, i'll try to finish it in 3yrs thn do the M.Eng overseas. i'm also looking at nus's global engineering program which is also some B.Eng in 3yrs and a M.Eng or M.Sc in the yr4. it makes more sense financially if you're self-sponsored as aussie engineering can cost AU15-30k for internationals.

Just for your information, ABP programmes in NTU only allow you to complete the course in 3.5 years and not 3 years. Besides, completing an engineering degree from the school of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering faculty in NTU in the standard 4 year is hard as it is.

I'm not sure about Australia Universities. Here are some others that I know of that offers very good Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering programmes.

UK - Cranfield university(They have a runway in the university ^^)
Netherlands - TU Delft
States - Georgia tech, Embry Riddle

Others that might be of interest to you: Sweden - KTM Stockolm(teach in english), Germany - Univerity of Stuttgart(I think they teach in german though).

If your finances are fine I would suggest going to Europe to pursue an Aerosapce Engineering Degree. Reason being the curriculum are better, long lineage, attachment opportunities are higher and most importantly your chances in getting an OEM job is higher. OEM deals with the actual design of the plane and we don't do that in Singapore. Singaproe deals nearly 100% on MRO which to sum it up is repair work.

So up to your own discretion what you chose eh! :D

I don't know which one is the best frankly.

My cousin studied at UWA and he is a consultant engineer for Boeing now.
