SkillsFuture Study Award for
 
Aerospace
Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB)
Sector Overview

The global Aerospace industry is set for an era of unprecedented growth. As the appetite for air travel continues to grow, the global fleet size is anticipated to double over the next two decades, creating abundant opportunities for Aerospace manufacturers, suppliers, and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies. With one of the largest and most diverse concentrations of Aerospace companies in Asia, Singapore is well-positioned to benefit from the growth of this industry.

Over the years, Singapore has developed into a leading Aerospace hub that includes manufacturing, engineering, R&D, MRO, and other aftermarket services such as pilot training, fleet management, aircraft conversions and modifications, and supply chain activities. In 2018, the industry employed over 21,000 workers and achieved an output of S$11.3 billion. Singapore’s reputation of delivering high-quality and complex products and services will continue to require a talented local workforce that continuously seeks to improve and upgrade its skills.

The courses supported under the SkillsFuture Study Award for Aerospace were identified based on the trends and requirements of the industry. A highly-trained workforce is needed to support the industry’s development in various areas, including automation, digitization, additive manufacturing, and advanced composites.
