Microfluidics is a multi-disciplinary field intersecting engineering, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, which is creating rapid growing markets worldwide in many areas such as clinical and personal diagnosis, drug screening, water and environment monitoring, food safety, and life science research. For this course, the participants will learn about the basic concepts of microfluidic technology, and the fundamentals of the device manufacturing. The participants will gain knowledge and skills on two major techniques for fabricating polymer microfluidic devices, which are plastic injection molding and joining. The course is conducted in an interactive way with case studies and hands-on experiments.

Why This Course

  • Special curriculum highlighting the knowledge about design and manufacturing of polymer-based microfluidic devices
  • Highly practical and intensive Latest knowledge and up-to-date technology
  • Case studies extracted from practical demands
  • Expert trainers with comprehensive knowledge in the field and training experience

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for product engineers, process engineers and project managers from companies which relate to microfluidic device design and manufacturing, especially in the medical technology and precision engineering industry. It also targets to engineers and managers who are seeking skill improvement and knowledge enhancement in microfluidic design and manufacturing, plastic injection moulding and joining processes.

    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.
