Company visits are common events that are part of the curriculum at TUM Asia. Such visits complement the knowledge taught during lectures and allow students to witness the practical applications of their studies plus gain hands-on experience of how industry operations are carried out.

In the past quarter, TUM Asia’s Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry (IC) students were able to make industry visits to two companies: Hong Leong Asia and Wacker Chemicals. The first trip to Hong Leong Asia’s Building Materials Unit, the largest integrated building materials supplier in Singapore, took place in January 2019. Students had the opportunity to witness the company’s plant set-up, tour the laboratories and learn more about the prefabrication of building components. The IC students were also invited to visit Wacker Chemicals (South Asia) Pte. Ltd, a leader in semiconductors, polysilicon, polymers, silicones and specialty chemicals, in March 2019. Students were introduced to Drymix Technology, Coatings Technology and Silicone Technology in construction application.

The most recent industry visit was held on 12 April 2019, catered for our students in Master of Science in Rail, Transport and Logistics. Students specializing in Railway Engineering were able to witness the construction of the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), the sixth line of to be built and introduced into Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system. These visits allowed our students to view some of the latest and current infrastructure in the industry and gave them a glimpse of what to expect in their future workplaces.
