Where can I find some more feedback about the company?

I would suggest students to be an engineer in the workshop level. They are paid more. I know of a workshop engineer earning 10k per mth. If AFM will earn even more.
Did you join as a trainee LAE? Are u a LAE now? Recently i've seen a number of NTU/NUS engineering grads joining as senior technician in SIAEC and working their way up to LAE.

So this means we r looking at 4yrs of training + 5-6yrs of LAE bond. Not sure how salary will progress after training ends though....

Recently got in touch with an ex schoolmate who grad with an aerospace degree, he joined an aviation company as trainee (Non destructive testing)NDT inspector, salary low $2k+....

Unless u sign on now at 23yo, u will finish the bond at early 30s, still nt so bad...
The training minimum 2yrs not exceeding 3yrs .

So u r 23 this yr, assuming u take a 4yrs degree course, u will grad at about 27.

During this 4yrs of ur studies, who knows wad may happen? U may find urself someone u love and wanna settle down in x years.

If u go into lae, first 4 yrs 27yo-31yo u will be paid roughly 2.5k/mth.

Only after passing all exams, clocking all exp then ur salary will start to slowly rise after 4yrs.

But I must say, I've heard of LAEs earning good salaries and they are needed everywhere in many different countries, especially after u finish the bond with ur company .

The most recent time I heard from another fren that LAE bond is 10yrs, not sure if its true?

If starting salary for u is something impt, I suggest u look into other industries and sectors that pay decently after u grad.


My personal advise is this :

1)Take a degree that is more general, that allows u to work in a number of roles n industries. If 1 industry is affected by recession, for instance aviation currently, u hve the opp to switch to other industries.

2) Think of what job roles u r interested to do when u graduate. Research abt it and ask industry professionals. During uni do as many internships in companies as possible.

3) Always think of backup career plan if ur 1st plan fails.

Hope it helps for you and wish u all the best

Lae max pay not that high for siaec. Im a union member there. You can't earn 20k but a reasonable 5 figures can still be hit below 14k if only you rech the ceiling
