Precision engineering involves work at the forefront of current technology. Present advanced technology products of importance in the international marketplace are dependent on high precision manufacturing processes, machines, control technologies and even nanotechnology. The achievement of ultra-high precision in the manufacture of extremely small devices opens the prospects in several diverse and futuristic fields such as massive computing power, medical devices in blood stream, global personal communication devices and high- resolution optical devices. Precision engineering is cross-disciplinary, dealing with metrology, materials, machining processes, machine tool design, microsensors and actuators, manufacture of integrated circuits and mass storage devices, novel manufacturing methods, applications in medicine and many other relevant fields. The development of new high quality products depends on the challenge of high precision. Precision engineering has been identified by the Economic Development Board, National Science and Technology Board and other key government agencies as one of the new and enhanced capabilities, which will be critical to developing Singapore's manufacturing industries in the future. Precision engineering is fundamental to our disc drive, automation, precision machinery and equipment manufacturing businesses. This Master of Science (Precision Engineering) programme is specially designed for mechanical and manufacturing engineers, designers, research and development engineers, instructors at tertiary institutions, and other related professionals in industry to acquire an in-depth knowledge in precision engineering and other related topics.
