Industry 4.0 is set to transform Singapore’s manufacturing sector, as more companies embrace advanced manufacturing technologies to increase their productivity and efficiency.
There is a real need to upskill our workforce and train our students to be ready for the job opportunities that accompany this development.
To support this transformation and prepare our manpower to be future-ready, TP has established a robust multidisciplinary ecosystem in advanced manufacturing that leverages our breadth of capabilities and key industry partnerships.
A vital component of this ecosystem, the TP Advanced Manufacturing Centre (TP AMC) is an applied and skills-based training centre for experiential learning and consultancy. AI-empowered and digitally driven, it is the place for learning about industry best practices, as well as developing innovative solutions.
TP Advanced Manufacturing Centre emerged as champions of the Industrial Innovation Challenge 2021, a competition organised by Aveva, Stratus and ISDN Software Business
