About SIMTech-NTU Joint Laboratory
The mission of the SIMTech-NTU Joint Laboratory and Collaborative Research Programme on Complex Systems in Manufacturing Operations and Supply Chain Networks is to be a leading research laboratory in addressing the complexities of manufacturing systems and supply chains through the multi-disciplinary approaches, while developing the competencies through the basic research and skilled manpower for the industry. In particular, the joint lab is founded to conduct research, to educate, train and endow the research students and staff with computational intelligence and complex systems technologies that address the complexities of future digital manufacturing, thus gearing Singapore in embracing towards the challenges of the envisioned Factory-of-the-Future. The scientific landscape of manufacturing systems both in Singapore and worldwide continues to change as the field evolves. It is anticipated that additional new scientific insights and technological advance would greatly impact the continued growth in this area.
Today, the number of personnel with major specialization in Complex Systems hired by the academia and industry remains small, yet, the professional requirements are high and include a thorough education in
mathematics and operations research
computational intelligence, data analytics and machine learning
Since Complex Systems related applications in the real world occur at the cutting edge of the field, professionals in this field need to have the credible research experience.
