This course is design to assist engineer to prepare for Practical Professional Exam in Civil Engineering. The syllabus of the exam is very wide; many engineers do not know how to prepare for the exam. This course uses systemic approach to cover major topics. This course has three modules and it will be helpful for candidate to attend all three modules, however, candidates may also attend individual module to suit their work schedule. Work example will be discussed during the course with illustration on how regulatory requirement shall be applied. Module 1 PPE Exam objectives and Concept on Structure Framing (8 hrs): 13 Jan 2018 (Sat)Module 2 Conceptual Design for Structure (8 hrs): 27 Jan 2018 (Sat)Module 3 Regulatory Requirement, Act & Regulations, Conceptual Design for civil work and underground building work (8 hrs): 10 Feb 2018 (Sat)

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become one of the most exciting developments in the building and construction industry in recent years. As an integrated design and documentation tool used to enhance communication and collaboration among all the project stakeholders, BIM has already begun changing the way architects, engineers, contractors and building owners work together. With strategic implementation, BIM will significantly improve the design and construction process through more integrated project coordination. BIM has also been identified as one of the key technologies to be adopted under BCAs S$250-million Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF) to help the local construction industry improve productivity and enhance its capability.The Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modeling (BIM) aims to impart in-depth knowledge on BIM fundamentals and develop strategic skills for BIM project planning and implementation. It will focus on BIM applications for effective design analysis, productive design and construction coordination and holistic facility management. BIM standards and guidelines as well as BIM project case studies will also be included in this course.Upon graduation, participants can look forward to career opportunities as BIM Project Coordinators, BIM Modelers/Operators, BIM Consultants/ Specialists, and BIM Managers.

1.Included in this talk are pointers, which have come to my mind based on my years experience and involvement in contracts of construction projects in Singapore and Malaysia. It is not my intention to discuss everything and every issue that one may come across in contracting of construction projects. Pointers given confine only to those issues and things that some practitioners seem to have overlooked, ignored or have not given due regard and attention to. Many of these issues and things are so simple and obvious and yet appear not to have caught the attention of some practitioners of the construction industry. It is not denied that more pointers could have been included. I have not done so because, I take cognisance of the fact that ways to contract construction projects are very much influenced and controlled by human behaviours, how the human mind works, and business practices of contracting parties, all of these are again dependent very much on contracting parties cultural background, business policy as well as strategy, traditional modus operandi, and the era circumstances and environment the contract is performed. Furthermore, a human mind could work in such a way that it could be beyond the imagination of ordinary people. I am an ordinary person. Giving due regard to the aforesaid, there could be no end to the list of pointers. Hence, I have therefore decided that pointers I will be discussing should confine to those related to only common issues and matters. Some pointers given herein may appear to be repetitions. It is really not so because, the issues and matters involved are somewhat related but different.2.It should also be noted that many pointers given herein involve not just one member of the project team [PT] (comprising the contracting parties, project professional consultant and the contract administrator) but all of them.3.It should be noted further that all opinions stated in these notes are mine, and NOT those of the organiser of this course, or any of his affiliated organisations.

This certification course provides an understanding of construction contracts. It examines the principles that are involved, the terms and conditions and the administration of contracts at various stages of a construction project.Case studies will be discussed during the sessions to broaden the participants knowledge of construction law.

Statutory legislations such as Workplace Safety and Health Act (WSHA) and its subsidiary legislations are prepared by legal professionals. The structure of the legislation as well as various terms used in the legislation are not usually easily and fully understood in terms of their intent, meaning and implications by industry practitioners who either do not have legal background or only possess minimum legal knowledge. It is important that construction/project managers, supervisors and WSH personnel are educated with the better understanding of legal terms, implications of the WSH legislations, responsibilities of stakeholders, liabilities and penalties for non-compliances with respect to managing construction projects.

IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) proudly present: "Efficient Development for Robust Systems Using Virtual Prototypes and Multi-Level Processors Models".

Robustness and reliability of Integrated Circuits (ICs) is essential for many important applications of ICs such as automotive or industrial control. At the same time, pressures on time to market and cost keep increasing. System-level design methodologies are therefore increasingly being utilized. Virtual Prototypes are valuable for fast system simulation, also allowing for concurrent development of hardware (HW) and Firmware / Software (FW/SW). Fault injection is an essential technique to verify integrated systems.In this Talk, Professor Dr.-Ing. Ulf Schlichtmann will describe the basic concept of Virtual Prototypes. Professor Schlichtmann will discuss how multi-level processor models enable an efficient combination of accuracy and performance in fault injection. Fault injection can also be extended to FW/SW in addition to HW. Cross-layer techniques are valuable in evaluating the robustness of complex integrated systems.The research described in this talk has mostly been developed in the context of large-scale public funded research projects in Germany, related to both industry 4.0 and automotive industry.

Underground and related structures are of great significance to the local construction industry. Many structures have to be built below ground and their design and construction are of importance to those in the civil engineering profession.Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers need to be familiar with the construction and supervision of underground and associated structures, as such foundations, basements, tunnels and earth-retaining structures.

bizSAFE is a five-level programme devised by the WSH Council (WSHC) to assist companies build up their WSH capabilities in order to achieve quantum improvements in safety and health standards at their workplaces. Companies are guided through a journey, starting from top management demonstrating their commitment towards WSH, to acquiring risk management capabilities and implementing a WSH Management System. In the process, participating Companies gain recognition and benefits of having a comprehensive WSH system in place. In the bizSAFE learning journey, this Level 4 course is meant for individuals who are appointed as WSH Management System Programme Lead and responsible for implementing WSH Management System in accordance with the requirements of Singapore Standard on Occupational Safety and Health Management System SS 506. This course has been accredited by the SSG.

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extent at undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design or for the checking of computer-based designs. However, rather than just providing an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures, it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many worked examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving, so little theory is presented. Appropriate reference will also be made to SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures
