SIT and Applied Materials team up to ready future semicon workforce

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and Applied Materials South East Asia are teaming up to develop and implement continuing education and training (CET) programmes for Applied Materials employees.

Under a memorandum of understanding, they will offer tailored learning programmes related to Industry 4.0 concepts, such as artificial intelligence, data engineering, the Internet of Things, machine learning, and smart factory.

The curriculum and duration of the programmes are customised to the needs of Applied Materials employees. These cover short and long courses as well as stackable post-graduate modules delivered by SIT academic staff.

“The semiconductor industry requires constant innovation, and investing in the development of our workforce is critical to maintaining technology leadership,” said Brian Tan, Vice President of Applied Global Services and Regional President at Applied Materials South East Asia.

“Our collaboration with Applied Materials offers valuable opportunities for the
company’s employees to equip themselves with knowledge of in-demand skills in areas such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. The programmes will tap on SIT’s strengths in applied learning and research, and will contribute towards capability building in the local semiconductor industry and across its ecosystem,” said Professor Chua Kee Chaing, President of SIT.
