Additive Manufacturing

"The lessons are well structured and delivered with hands-on lab practice to enhance our understanding. We have regular class tests with a lot of guidance the minute we show that we are unsure. I have only positives for my learning journey.

Thank you, SGUS! Thank you, SIMTech!"

Trainee from SGUS for Additive Manufacturing

“Dr Wang is a humble, patient, encouraging, and committed tutor. While imparting inventory planning skills and knowledge to us, his learn-it-all attitude impressed upon me as a role model for learning and excelling in study and in life. My takeaway from him far exceeds the course objective of Inventory Planning.

Thank you Dr Wang.”

Ms Veronica Chiu,
Trainee from SGUS for Digital Transformation & Innovation™


“An exciting learning journey together with SIMTech’s scientists, their unique practical ‘hands-on’ online sessions as well as training at their SMART Model Factory using their patented Digital Transformation & Innovation™ (DTI™) methodology”

Mr David Ong,
Trainee from SGUS for Digital Transformation & Innovation™


"Being a NHB-nominated Intangible Culture Heritage person, with my expertise on musical instruments fabrication & acoustics design, I am delighted to say the SGUS course is useful for me. I could learn something about the concept of manufacturing, improve my productivity and business management skills.

Although I am already over 60 years old, but the Government always encourage us to never stop learning new things, this would increase our chances of being re-employed, and also find more reliable judgment in our future. Thanks to SGUS."

Mr Ng Teck Seng,
Trainee from SGUS for Digital Transformation & Innovation™
