Temasek Polytechnic develops Gas Turbine Engines and Aircraft Aerodynamic & Systems training applications for aerospace diploma program
IRVINE, CA, December 4, 2013 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced in partnership with Singapore’s Temasek Polytechnic the development of several training modules for Aerospace focused on Gas Turbine Engines and Aircraft Aerodynamic & Systems. Eight initial 3D simulation and interactive learning (3D SaIL) modules were built to augment student learning in the polytechnic’s Diploma in Aerospace Engineering programme. The learning modules were designed to promote higher student engagement through interaction, improve knowledge retention and enhance overall learning experience.
“Embarking on the project with EON Reality has resulted in two important goals for us. Firstly, it enhances our training provided to aerospace students and secondly, it has enabled us to extend our capability in developing simulation-based learning courseware within our campus,” stated Mrs. Lay-Tan Siok Lie, Deputy Principal and Director, School of Engineering.
Each module comprises two parts: a guided “Theory” segment, followed by an interactive task & evaluation assignment segment.

Instructors and students have the freedom to access these modules anywhere and anytime through the Learning Management System. The team is currently porting these learning modules to various immersive and mobile platforms. Hence, in the near future, a student will be able to access these training modules on the go or in the field on mobile platforms, in the class room on a desktop unit, or in a lab setting, using immersive systems.
“The training module will initially be used by two hundred students before expanding to the entire program. An additional ten modules will be added over the next eighteen months to Temasek Polytechnic’s training library to expand their 3D training to cover more topics such as maintenance of fuel distribution units,” said Sridhar Sunkad, MD at EON Reality Pte ltd.
