I4.0 Learning Journey with SIRI

In my years of working in high technology Silicon Valley companies; I was impressed by what I saw in the AMLJ Workshops. It was clearly reflective of the advanced technologies being employed by modern high tech manufacturing companies anywhere in the world.  The labs are clearly staffed and equipped to teach and inspire not only students but will certainly guide Singapore companies to upgrade and update their shop floor technology to stay abreast with their regional and global competitors.
