Amid the economic downturn due to the current pandemic, more companies are taking up the
government’s incentives and preparing themselves to take part in advanced manufacturing. Robotics and
automation, being critical enabler for productivity gains, is becoming more in-demand across a wide range of industries, especially in the era of low touch economy. Moreover, rapid advances in robotic technologies provide even greater possibilities for huge business benefits. Against this backdrop, many companies are seeking people who not only understand the fundamentals of robotics and automation, but can also apply the state-of-the-art technologies to achieve the desired results effectively.
SIMTech’s SCTP for Industrial Automation is packaged with 6 essential subject modules, starting from a set of skilled-based modules to equip the participants with the necessary technical skills in robotics and automation, up to the modules that focus on planning and assessing the targeted processes for
effective automation solution implementation. The overall objective is to equip the participants with the
necessary knowledge and practical skills in advanced robotics and automation technologies, including
intuitive robotic programming, mobile robot navigation and localisation; sensor-guided robotic pick-and-place; ROS application; and automaton design and simulation.
This programme is offered in a part-time mode. The duration of completion is expected to be within a 6-month period.
The programme seeks to improve the participants’ expertise in robotics, material handling, automation system control, design, and simulation by offering lectures and practical sessions. SIMTech’s experienced trainers will provide hands-on
training and mentorship using the latest technologies, bridging the knowledge and skill gaps within the manufacturing industry.
