EG3601 Industrial Attachment Programme (IAP), is an optional module, designed to:
a. expose students to the day-to-day work environment of a professional
provide opportunities for the students to use their initiative to translate theories learnt in classrooms and perform assignments in an actual working environment;
instil in the students the right kind of work attitudes and professionalism through interaction with people in the organisations, and observation of their future roles in industry; and
lessen the on-the-job training requirements so that they can become effective and productive to their respective organisations much sooner than is usual for fresh graduates.
The programme will also enable the
organizations to assess the quality of NUS engineering students, as well as participate fully as partners in cooperative education.
