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.

Programme Introduction

Surface treatment and coatings are key technologies for enhancing many engineering tools or components to meet the desired functional performance, aesthetics, resistance against wear and corrosion as well as high fatigue life, so as to maximise the economic benefits for businesses. With recent advances in materials and processes, surface treatment and coating technologies are playing an increasingly important role in realising new engineering breakthroughs in almost all the industry sectors, including precision engineering, aerospace, marine and offshore, O&G, medtech, microelectronics, civil and construction, home appliances, food and beverage, water and waste treatment. Furthermore, in line with digitalisation towards Industry 4.0, surface technologies are also moving towards the implementation of smart processes, with automation, digitalisation, and data analytics to transform operations for maximum productivity, quality and business outcome.

This programme aims to train participants with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to embark on advanced surface engineering technologies, including surface cleaning and modification, surface manufacturing process, surface characterisation methods, process digitalisation and data analytics concepts, as well as process/product quality control and management.

About the Programme

This programme consists of 10 training modules. By completing this programme successfully, the participants will be awarded with a full Graduate Diploma qualification in Precision Engineering, with specialisation in Advanced Surface Engineering, plus a Certificate of Attendance (COA) in Data Mining for Correlation Analysis (DM-LITE) and a Statement of Attainment (SOA) for Materials Characterisation.

The programme is enhanced with a lab-based practise training module and 2 project-based training modules to provide unique opportunities to the participants to learn and apply the knowledge and skills for workplace utilisation and implementation.
