Here’s what our scholars have to say about their experience in CAAS:

Testimonials

 jillian-(crop) “CAAS, with its wide range of functions, offers many opportunities for exposure and experiences in the international and domestic sphere. My current role deals with strategic issues in aviation which is both enriching and challenging. I'm looking forward to job rotations to other roles to learn and contribute to areas such as operations.”

Master of Engineering (Industrial Engineering & Operations Research), University of California, Berkeley

 gary-(crop) “My work is multi-dimensional and ever changing. I took up a scholarship with CAAS because we have a world leading aviation sector that offers exciting and vibrant career prospects. While I have worked at CAAS for only 1.5 years, I’ve been entrusted with the responsibility to manage major projects. This is encouraging as it reflects the confidence and trust that CAAS places on me, allowing me to develop my career with greater opportunities. 

I was also appointed as the Liaison Officer for the President of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council during his visit to Singapore for the World Civil Aviation Chief Executives Forum in April 2019. This gave me an opportunity to engage with and learn from a top leader.”

More importantly, CAAS has been very supportive of my studies. By developing my keen interest in policy formulation and aviation, I’ve been able to put my passion to good use and contribute to Singapore. The cherry on the cake? Definitely having the opportunity to pursue my studies overseas with strong support from my employer!”

 simranpal-(crop) “As part of the team involved in the planning and design of Changi Airport’s new mega passenger terminal, Terminal 5 (T5), I’m involved in the analysis and evaluation of the latest T5 designs. And because the T5 project is so extensive and moving at such a rapid pace, we never know what curveball may be thrown our way next. What makes it all worthwhile is when Changi remains the air hub of choice and continues to emerge as the best airport in the world.”

The CAAS Scholarship not only gave me the opportunity to experience a diverse range of roles, it also enabled me to pursue courses on various topics such as public policy, data analytics and management skills. The lessons and experience I have gained through taking on these varied job functions have been invaluable in my professional development.”
