The next few decades will be defined by the largest workforce transition in mankind’s history. While millions of existing jobs will disappear due to technological enhancements, millions of new jobs will also be created at the same time and the remaining jobs will undergo some form of transformation. A workforce with strong technological skills, including robot literacy, will have a significant advantage when applying for jobs.

This workshop will introduce participants to this exciting world of robotics. It aims to equip participants with the fundamental knowledge in robotics such as the anatomy of robots, characteristics of robots, modelling of robots as well as selection of the right robots for the right tasks. There will also be hands-on experience that will allow participants gain a better appreciation of the contents taught.

To aid companies in transforming their capabilities through their human capital, and support Singapore’s drive towards becoming a Smart Nation, this course is mapped to the Singapore Economic Development Board’s Singapore Smart Industry Readiness Index – Dimension 4 Shop Floor Automation.
