The Technical University of Munich Asia (TUM Asia) commenced operations in Singapore in 2002 as a branch campus subsidiary of the Technische Universität München (TUM) which is ranked as the #1 University in Germany. To foster a closer partnership between education and manufacturing industries, TUM Asia has partnered Festo Didactic who is the world-leading provider of equipment and solutions for technical education to launch Singapore’s 1st Industry 4.0 Specialist Diploma in Advanced Digital Manufacturing (ADM).
Under the direct guidance of German experts who are key drivers of Industrie 4.0, the Specialist Diploma in ADM equips participants with relevant Industrie 4.0 knowledge and skills as well as hands-on experience with Industrie 4.0 training equipment to prepare them for more complex job roles to meet new technological challenges in the Advanced Manufacturing Industry. Participants will also receive expert mentorship to create and implement a digital transformation blueprint for their business to improve productivity and transform their operations.
Modules are taught by experts from TUM and qualified Festo Didactic trainers
Quality instructional time emphasized using a Block Teaching system (5 full days per module)
Equips participants with relevant Industrie 4.0 knowledge and skills to make an impact in the industry
Application of the knowledge learnt into the participant’s company
Participants will be awarded the Specialist Diploma in Advanced Digital Manufacturing upon successful completion of both of the following Post-Diploma Certificates. Each Post-Diploma Certificate comprises of three individual modules.
