Programme Introduction

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is identified as the future manufacturing for operations that require short time-to-market builds, unique design requirements and low volume-high mix production runs. With the growing adoption of AM, there is a need for a more skilled talent pool in the market.

This programme aims to train participants with a holistic understanding of the AM concept and fundamentals, data mining, IIot-enabled monitoring, and AM practical skills in line with digitalisation towards Industry 4.0 for all major industry sectors. It will cover principles, methodologies, design for manufacturing, industry standards, quality assurance, industry case studies and usage of specific 3D AM technologies and systems, along with an understanding of the necessary post-processing of AM products, which are critical in the manufacturing of customised and complex 3D parts.

"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!"
