Who Should Attend

The intended target audience is non-diploma working professional who is currently working in or aspiring to join the Engineering, Logistics, Precision Engineering, Aerospace Manufacturing and Electronics Manufacturing sector. This course will impart participants with multi-disciplinary and cross-functional skillsets for end-to-end solutions demanded in the advanced manufacturing landscape.

What You'll Learn

To be awarded the Diploma in Engineering (Digital Manufacturing), participants are required to complete a total of 5 modular certificates (MCs). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of each MC.



Modular Certificate in Supply Chain & Logistics IT

This certificate provides an overview of the supply chain management and logistics IT in the manufacturing industry. Graduates from this modular certification will not only gain the skills of logistics operations but will be able to understand and have first-hand experience to the various advanced technology solutions in the evolving logistics field. 

Subject Code Subject
BCLO009 Distribution Centre Management

This subject provides an overview of the role of Distribution Centre (DC) in the supply chain, the various activities performed within a DC and the significance of these activities on customer service and total logistics costs.

It focuses on the major resources to be applied in a DC and explains how they interact with one another in contributing to the DC’s effectiveness and efficiency. It will also cover the significance of providing DC services to the Third-Party Logistics industry.

BCLO010 Enterprise Resource Management

This subject covers the key business and operational processes within an enterprise.  The use of an ERP system will be used to illustrate how enterprise system integrate information and work flow across a company's various business functions.

BCLO011 Supply Chain Management & Technology

The subject provides an overview of the relations between supply chain management and logistics management, and their impact on the success of organisations. It focuses on the major functional components in a supply chain and explains how they interact with one another in contributing to the success of a business organisation. The application of technology will also be emphasised, as technology is a key driver of business operations in the supply chain.

Modular Certificate in Advanced Manufacturing System

This certificate provides learners with hands-on understanding of the various technology enablers to the advanced manufacturing systems in the industry. Learners will have the first hand understanding and experience to various smart manufacturing systems solutions. They will also cover in greater depth on areas relating to CAD (Computer Aided Design) and additive manufacturing as well as robotics and automation solutions.
