Polymer-based Additive Manufacturing Processes for Flexible Mass Customisation
This course is one of five modules stackable for the Graduate Diploma in Precision Engineering, specialising in Additive Manufacturing.

This course aims to introduce the fundamental concept and theoretical knowledge of polymer-based additive manufacturing (AM) processes to address high-mix low-volume production for applications in the Precision Engineering industry, as well as other related industrial sectors.

Participants will acquire knowledge and skills on material and polymer AM selection to fulfill specific functional requirements. New insight, understanding and more in-depth perspectives are gained on various polymer-based AM processes, such as stereolithography, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modelling, polymer jetting and other upcoming polymer AM processes. The course includes industrial case studies and practical lab sessions to substantiate technology adoption of polymer AM processes in high-mix-low-volume production.

Why This Course

  • Designed specifically to meet Singapore’s industry demand
  • Delivered by technology experts with many years of industrial projects’ experience
  • Highly practical and hands-on work intensive
  • Latest knowledge and up-to-date technologies via industrial case-studies

Who Should Attend

This course is targeted at operation managers, manufacturing managers/engineers, production planning engineers, materials engineers, mechanical engineers, production engineers, foremen and skilled operators, quality control managers/engineers, materials purchasing engineers, laboratory managers and engineers, as well as all manufacturing industries with forming processes such as precision engineering, aerospace, biomedical, automotive, and electronics sectors.


Our webinar was held on 31 March 2022 to offer an introduction to this course. You can also watch our webinar's video recording at our YouTube webpage.

    Eligible for SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    The SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC) was first introduced during the Singapore’s Budget 2020 and then recently expanded to a larger group of employers in Budget 2022. It encourages employers to invest in enterprise transformation and capabilities of their employees. Eligible employers will receive a one-off S$10,000 credit to cover up to 90% of out-of-pocket expenses on qualifying costs for supportable initiatives, over and above the support levels of existing schemes.

    Submission of SFEC Claim

    Employers are required to submit their SFEC claims manually via its microsite if they fulfil any of the following scenarios:

    • Employers have sent their foreign employees (excluding foreign employees who hold Long-Term Visit Pass Plus) for training on a SFEC-eligible course;

    Employers can only submit the claims for SFEC after their employees have completed the training course(s). Click here to download the SFEC Claim e-guide.
    NOTE: You will require a Corppass account with "EPJS_User" role assigned prior to login to your account to manage your claims.

    If you are unsure whether your company is eligible for SFEC, you may submit an enquiry to Enterprise Singapore (ESG) via here for their response.
