In the very first year, students go through a common course to learn engineering fundamentals. They will then join one of the following courses:

Streaming to the Diploma in Aerospace Engineering will take place after the 1st semester's results are released. Students selected for the course will thereafter join the course in the 2nd semester.
The rest of the students will progress naturally onto the Diploma in Mechatronics in Year 2.
Only the Aerospace Engineering course accepts students directly during the Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE). MAE students who join the Aerospace Engineering course subsequently will be on equal footing as students who had joined the course direct.
Students keen in Mechatronics will have to join the course through MAE.
The two diploma courses are in many ways related to Mechanical Engineering. There is always a demand in the industry for trained manpower in mechanical/mechatronics engineering.
Given the current popularity of the Aerospace Engineering course, the programme gives students another opportunity to apply for the course.
If you are very keen in subjects related to aerospace engineering, you may consider the Aerospace Systems elective offered by the Mechatronics course.
To cater to different students’ interests and industries’ needs, the course also offers electives on Robotics and Process Control & Automation.
If you are certain which diploma course you want to be in, you should try to secure your place in that course. Hence you could put Aerospace Engineering first, followed by MAE.
Graduates from the 2 diploma courses are given advanced standing by many local and foreign universities to their degree programmes. The National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) grant graduates direct entry into the second year of their engineering degree programmes.
With the training they have received, graduates can also apply to degree courses in many other disciplines.
