LEARN Fee & Modules Outline PRACTISE & IMPLEMENT™ $750 Nett Course Fee & $1,200 Monthly Training Allowance 10 modules for completion under the SGUS FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING specialisation. TECHNICAL SKILLS MODULES (”LEARN & PRACTISE”) Smart Additive Manufacturing System 3D additive manufacturing (AM) is a disruptive technology that is fundamentally distinct from conventional manufacturing technologies. This module provides the introduction and overview to 3D AM, as well as unequivocal advantages of 3D AM to manufacture complex and customised functional parts. It offers participants the opportunity to appreciate the uniqueness of 3D AM technology, the importance of digital manufacturing and the understanding of necessary design requirements, topology optimisation and quality assurance for additive manufacturing. Participants will also integrate AM and implement procedures and operations according to industry standards and WSH requirements in the practical hands-on sessions. Powder-bed Additive Manufacturing Processes for Complex Functional Metallic Components This module covers metal powder fabrication as feedstock for powder-bed 3D AM systems and the powder characteristics critical for AM processing. Also addressed in the module are the key powder-bed metal AM processes, for example, Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and metal binder jetting technologies, to manufacture complex functional metallic parts. The industrial applications and relevant post-processing of such AM metallic components will also be shared with industrial case studies. In-depth learning will be aided by practical laboratory sessions and project-based discussions on key technologies. High Speed Additive Manufacturing Processes for Metallic Components This module will bring participants to delve into electron beam-based and laser-based AM technologies which enable the manufacturing of large format metallic components. They include wire-fed, powder-blown and hybrid processes that allow high-speed manufacturing. Participants will learn materials, metallurgy, quality assurance and certification of additive manufactured metallic components. Participants will also learn the design for high-speed additive manufacturing and tool-path planning and generation. The industrial applications and relevant post-processing of such metallic components will also be shared with industrial and project-based case studies. Polymer-based Additive Manufacturing Processes for Flexible Mass Customisation Products from polymeric 3D AM systems are known for their accuracy and excellent surface finish. Participants will be introduced to the photopolymerization process in liquid-based polymeric 3D AM technologies and solid-based polymeric 3D AM technologies which use precursor materials such as polymeric powder or filaments. Liquid-based polymeric 3D AM technologies such as stereolithography and polymer jetting will be covered. Also shared in this module are the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), powder-bed inkjet 3D printing and Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technologies. Design guidelines, quality assurance, industry standards and file preparation of specific polymer additive manufacturing systems are also covered in the module. Furthermore, the industrial applications and relevant post-processing of such polymeric components will also be discussed with industrial case studies. Plan and Manage Project for Implementation This module covers the methods for planning, executing and managing projects for developing technology, products and processes. Participants will also be taught on applications of project planning tools and skills for managing uncertainties and disruptions in project activities. Human, financial and business factors that influence the conduct of projects will be considered and explored. Participants will be awarded the Graduate Diploma in Precision Engineering after successfully completing all five required modules. Alternatively, participants will be awarded a WSQ Statement of Attainment certificate for passing each individual module.

TECHNICAL SKILLS MODULES (”LEARN & PRACTISE”) Data Mining for Correlation Analysis (DM-LITE) This module covers a set of methodologies of conducting problem-solving using the data mining approach, which includes data collection, pre-process data from multiple sources, cleaning of the data, and finally using data mining techniques to analyse the data and find out hidden correlations among various parameters involved in processes. Through extensive hands-on and discussion of successful case studies, the course will equip participants with the ability to use data mining techniques to solve actual industrial problems. IIoT-enabled Equipment Condition Monitoring and Alert (IECOM) Machine breakdowns and unplanned downtime affects equipment availability and interrupts the delivery of services. Monitoring equipment’s condition and alerting its impending failure can help to minimise disruptions and costly repairs. This course provides participants with training in implementing an equipment condition and alert system using Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) devices for remote monitoring of machine conditions. This course is specifically developed for local industry needs and taught by industry practitioners in the field. Case studies are discussed to highlight the applications in industry. PRACTICAL MODULES (”IMPLEMENT”) Lab-based Practise Training This module is designed to provide extensive hands-on practise training on basic skills of common processes, characterisation methods and data analysis encountered in additive manufacturing. The module consists of 40 sessions (120 hours in total) which will offer participants the opportunity to learn and operate the process equipment and analytical instruments in SIMTech’s labs to reinforce their knowledge learned from the technical skill modules. Under the guidance of the experienced trainers, the participants are expected to do hands-on work in these three categories: Additive Manufacturing Process Skills Training – Participants will have hands-on experience on key additive manufacturing processes and equipment, which includes extrusion-based systems, powder-bed metal and polymer systems, robotic powder-blown systems and liquid resin-based polymer systems. Characterisation Methods and Analyses - Participants will have hands-on experience on characterisation tools that are used to analyse the feedstock (e.g. powder, filament and resin) and the print parts’ quality (in terms of density, mechanical properties, surface roughness, microstructures, dimensional measurement etc). Data Processing and Analysis - Participants will be guided to collect data from AM machines in a model factory and process the data to establish correlations with the relevant printing process parameters and print quality output. Project-based Training for Implementation (M1) Project-based Training for Implementation (M2) Participants will be awarded a SIMTech Certificate of Attendance certificate for passing each individual module.

PRE-REQUISITES Only Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents aged above 21 years old who are unemployed or retrenched and can commit to the SGUS courses on a full-time basis are eligible to apply for the SGUS programme. In addition, the target trainees for the SGUS courses will exclude the following: a) Graduated or graduating in Calendar Year (CY) 2019 / 2020 from ITE, Polytechnics, Universities, and other educational institutions. This includes graduates from private universities as well as overseas institutions; and b) Graduated from the educational institutions mentioned in (a) and completed or completing their National Service (NS) in CY 2019 / 2020 and are entering the labour force. Applicants should possess a degree in any discipline or a diploma with a minimum of 3 years of related working experience. Applicants who do not have the required academic qualifications are still welcome to apply, but shortlisted candidates may be required to attend an interview for special approval.
