Undergraduate (Full-Time)





In the curriculum structure at NTU all Engineering students must successfully complete one of the internship programmes before their graduation.

The purposes of the internship programmes are to supplement NTU's in-house practical professional training and to lessen the on-the-job training of these students when they graduate, as well as to instil in them the right kind of work attitude and work professionalism, so that they can become effective and productive to their respective organisations much sooner than is usual for fresh graduates.

Assessment of Students
Participating organisation is required to assign a supervisor, preferably an engineer, to supervise the student and assess his/her work performance during the internship. Students will also be assessed by NTU faculty member.
Allowance and Working Hours
The allowance to be paid to the student will be determined by the organisation. As a guide, for internship in Singapore, organisations are paying S$800 to S$1500 per month (CPF exempted). This subsistence allowance paid to students to meet his/her daily expenses and board and lodging (in the case of foreign student) is not liable to income tax in Singapore, as long as there is no employment contract between the student and the participating organisation.  Students will follow the normal office working hours of the organisation.  For overseas internship, students are normally paid according to the industrial norms in the country of internship.
Students are insured against industrial hazards or accidents through a Group Personal Accident Insurance Scheme arranged by NTU. The University has also taken up a Public Liability Policy Insurance to indemnify organisations against claims and damages arising as a result of an act committed by NTU students in the course of the internship.
Certificate of Accomplishment
Upon completion of the internship programme, students will be awarded Certificates of Accomplishment, jointly signed by the Director of Career & Attachment Office, NTU and a nominated representative of the organisation.
