Dr. Tor Shu Beng is an associate professor of the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NTU. He is also the Programme Director for the Marine and Offshore Programme, Singapore Centre for 3D Printing. He served as a faculty fellow of the Singapore MIT Alliance (SMA) from 2000-2013 and the course coordinator of the SMA program on Manufacturing Systems and Technology (MST) from 2000-2010. He had also served as the Head of the Manufacturing Engineering Division and as the Associate Chair (Academic) of the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering before July 2011. His research focuses on micro-replication processes, tooling for micro-replication, mold and tooling design and most recently Additive Manufacturing.
