Technology Infusion Programme on Advances in Welding Technology and its Applications

Date: 05 Sep 2011 - 05 Sep 2011

Venue: Conference Room, Level 4, Tower Block, SIMTech, 71 Nanyang Drive


Welding has long been used for joining and for material build-up. A good understanding of recent technological advances will enable the achievement of higher productivity and more precise control over the welding process. Furthermore new applications are continuously developed with the advanced welding technology. This course will focus on the advances in welding technology and its applications.  


Course Leaders

Dr Sun Zheng obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland. He has more than 20 years of working experience in the field of materials joining in research institute, university and industrial environments. Dr Sun who specializes in fusion welding processes and welding metallurgy has published over 100 papers in international journals and conference proceedings.
