Extension of SGUnited Skills (SGUS) Programme
15 Apr 2021
Helping Singaporeans and PRs get re-employed during this pandemic, SIMTech is currently training 14 SGUS cohorts and counting
Since the launch of the SGUnited Skills (SGUS) programme in May last year, SIMTech has been upskilling workers affected by the economic impact of COVID-19. From this month, our pioneer batches will be completing their 9-month training with us, and we are proud of what the trainees have to say about their journey with us. In his recent budget on 16 February, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Heng Swee Keat announced that the SGUS will be extended for another year till 31 Mar 2022. SIMTech will continue to give our strong support for this programme.

"This postgraduate Diploma course that I am undergoing is very informative. I am looking at new knowledge in every sense of the word. We are unlearning past methodologies and workflows and re-looking at designing from a new perspective, making this very refreshing and challenging and I am totally enjoying it.
I must give special mention to all our lecturers for this course – every single one of them are full of knowledge and have been through the entire learning process of additive manufacturing themselves to be able to guide us through, and it is done with immense patience, understanding and humility. I have such good experience with them the past months.
The lessons are well structured and delivered with hands-on lab practice to enhance our understanding. We had regular class test 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!"
Mr Steven Lim, Trainee from SGUS for Additive Manufacturing
"I truly enjoyed the Inventory Planning course as the concepts and learning outcomes were well organised and delivered. Complex concepts for someone new to the industry was made simple to understand and apply. This stimulates my interest to analyse data deeper for greater insights, reinforcing learning.
Cross-sharing and learning of diverse views through presentations and breakout discussions were constantly encouraged to expand my learning horizon, benefiting more than giving.
Dr Wang is a humble, patient, encouraging, and committed tutor. While imparting Inventory Planning skills and knowledge to us, his learn-it-all attitude impressed upon me as a role model for learning and excelling in study and in life. My takeaway from him far exceeds the course objective of Inventory Planning.
Thank you Dr Wang."
Ms Veronica Chiu, Trainee from SGUS for Digital Transformation & Innovation™"
