What is SGUnited Skills (SGUS) Programme?

The SGUnited Skills (SGUS) Programme which opens for unemployed or retrenched Singaporeans and Permanent Residents is a full-time Train & Place programme of 9 months duration. Trainees will also receive a training allowance of $1,200 per month for the duration of the programme to cover basic subsistence expenses.

SIMTech's Knowledge Transfer Office has 8 certifiable course specialisations. We are also the only training provider with 4 SGUS specialisations that offers trainees with a Graduate Diploma in Precision Engineering upon completion.

Applications for the SGUS courses are ongoing and each intake will commence once there are sufficient registrations to form a class!

Important Note: In order to provide opportunities for as many Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents as possible, individuals can only enrol in a SGUnited Skills Programme ONCE.

Skills Course Reference: TGS-2020508863

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.

About the Programme

The programme consists of 10 training modules. By completing this programme successfully, the participants will be awarded a full Graduate Diploma qualification in Precision Engineering, with specialisation in Additive Manufacturing, and two Certificates of Attendance (COAs) in Data Mining for Correlation Analysis (DM-LITE) and IIoT-enabled Equipment Condition Monitoring and Alert (IECOM).

A lab-based practise training module and 2 project-based training modules are designed for participants to gain the practical skills and competency in identifying, utilisation and implementation of suitable 3D AM technology to manufacture customised and complex 3D parts.
