A panel of SUSS faculty members and staff from the SUSS School of Business (SBIZ), School of Science and Technology (SST), Centre of Applied Research (CFAR) and CCPE shared with the audience the various topics related to technologies that play a part in revolutionising the economy. Topics covered included Changing Skills and Jobs, Cybersecurity, Digital Content Marketing, Data Analytics, Industry 4.0 and Professional Conversion Programme.
A/P Randolph Tan, Director, Centre of Applied Research (CFAR), shared findings from his team's research work, "Study on Changing Skills and Jobs" where they discovered three factors that affect the ability of Singapore's labour market to adapt to changes in technology.
Dr Ng Hsiao Piau, an associate faculty from SUSS School of Business (SBIZ), introduced Industrie 4.0 and shared examples of companies using smart technologies such as Big Data, Cloud Computing, and networked machines and processes.
During the seminar, existing programmes in SUSS which focuses on preempting changes in the digital era were also shared. One of such programmes is the Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) offered by CCPE. It provides the necessary skills and conversion training for mid-career switches to embrace their new job roles and matches these individuals to companies they are currently partnering with.
An alumnus, Mr Joo Jian Jia, who travelled all the way from Johor Bahru to attend the seminar shared his reasons for attending: “I wanted to know more about Industry 4.0. It is very useful as it improves my career skills for the digital era.”
