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. It is also to instill 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.
