The Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace program is designed to meet the demand of the industry today. The program covers in detail principal knowledge in the aerospace profession. Students are also given practical learning and are given sample exposure to the real work situation;an effort in preparing them to face the challenges in this challenge profession.

The school's vision is to be the premier center that generates and continuously supports a community of aerospace professionals that will spearhead and strengthen the development of aerospace and aerospace-related industries and institutions in Malaysia. To achieve this vision the school will carry out its mission to lead and innovate through high quality knowledge and skills in aerospace engineering and through education and research for the development of human resources in the aerospace engineering field in Malaysia. In conjunction with the vision, the program educational objectives of the School of Aerospace Engineering are:

  1. Excel in engineering practices in various aerospace industries.
  2. Establish themselves as leaders in their professional careers.
  3. Earn an advanced degree or professional certification

These objectives are attainable as the program is designed to train students to posses the following attitudes:

  • An ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data related to aerospace engineering work or research.
  • An ability to identify, analyze, and solve aerospace engineering problems.
  • An ability to understand and apply knowledge of mathematics, sciences, and engineering in dealing with aerospace-related problems.
  • An ability to use techniques, skills, and engineering tools necessary for aerospace engineering practise.
  • An ability to design aerospace system components or processes to meet desired needs within realistic constrains such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, and technical.
  • An ability to write and communicate effectively.
  • An ability to work efficiently in a multidisciplinary team as well as independently.
  • A understanding of ethical and professional responsibility towards oneself, other individuals, organizations, societies, and nation.
  • An ability to recognize the need for self-improvement and self-advancement.
  • An aptitude to engage in the process of life-long learning.
  • A sensitivity towards staying alert and cognizant of emerging related technology and a 
    knowledge of contemporary issues.
  • An understanding of the impact of aerospace engineering influence in a societal, economics, environmental, and global context.

In fulfilling the school's curriculum and professional requirements, students are required to undergo industrial training in order to gain experience and exposure towards the professional engineering practice. The industrial training is a continuation to the Engineering Practises course which is offered and conducted by the school. The industrial training is conducted in the period of ten weeks at the selected aerospace industries premises or relevant industries
