A new partnership aims to cultivate engineering and infocomm technology professionals for Singapore’s next generation port in Tuas.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by PSA Corporation Limited (PSA) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) is expected to help develop human capital to support the growth of the port industry.

Ong Kim Pong, regional CEO Southeast Asia at PSA International, said: “We have embarked on a plan to redesign jobs and build competencies, to continue to create exciting new career pathways for our present and future employees.

“This MOU is therefore very timely as it allows PSA to tap NUS’ latest pedagogy and resources, and brings opportunities not only for us to equip NUS students with practical industry skills, but also gives them the chance to pursue careers with excellent prospects in PSA.”

Automation focus

The new Tuas port will leverage automation technologies and intelligent interconnected systems to enhance terminal productivity and optimise processes.

To build up the competencies required, PSA will jointly develop curriculum and programmes with the NUS school of computing and NUS faculty of engineering, where students will have opportunities to advance their knowledge in areas including data analytics, cyber security, automation and intelligent systems.

Problem statements and case studies provided by PSA will help NUS students better understand how new technologies and intelligent systems are applied to modern port operations and equipment.

PSA will also provide and strengthen its support for NUS’ global engineering programme, innovation and design-centric programme, and co-operative education programme.
