EVALUATE ADVANCED METAL WELDING PROCESSES (45 HOURS)

Evaluate Advanced Metal Welding Processes
  • We are revamping the full qualifications for the Graduate Diploma courses. Applicants can still sign up for the individual modules under the specialisations.

Introduction

This module is specially designed to train participants in several aspects of welding technologies and build up the competencies required to implement the technologies in various industrial applications. These include welding processes such as fusion stir welding, solid state welding, solid-liquid state welding and welding metallurgy. This course also benefits engineers who wish to refresh their fundamentals and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in welding technology. The knowledge gained during this course benefits both the participants who stand to upgrade their individual expertise and their companies with the opportunity to improve their competitiveness. This module will introduce welding processes such as arc welding, laser welding, electron beam welding, friction stir welding, brazing, resistance welding and ultrasonic welding. The process principle, procedure, equipment, and quality control will be dealt with for the specific techniques. Project based case studies will be offered to give participants a more in-depth understanding on the techniques and how to implement them in real industrial applications.

Why This Course

  • Designed specifically to meet local industry demands
  • Highly practical and intensive
  • Latest knowledge and up-to-date technology
  • Case studies highlighting industrial application
  • Expert trainers in the field with industrial experience

Who Should Attend

The module will benefit operation managers, manufacturing managers/engineers, production planning/materials/mechanical/production engineers, foremen and skilled operators, quality control managers/engineers, materials purchasing engineers, laboratory managers and engineers, university students specialising in materials science and mechanical engineering, as well as personnel from any manufacturing company that uses welding as a joining process, including the precision engineering, aerospace, automotive, and electronics sectors.
