Recognising industrial internships as an important element of the professional engineering training, NUS Engineering has re-introduced internships as a compulsory requirement of the Bachelor of Engineering curriculum for students of the 2014 matriculation cohort and onwards. Internships provide an excellent platform for students to integrate knowledge and theories learnt in the classroom with the practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Students are also expected to develop a better appreciation of engineering professions and be better able to define their career aspirations. The Faculty partners organisations and establishments in the industry to place students in meaningful internships. Internships enable organisations to gain access to students as a mode of talent acquisition while contributing in shaping the younger generation of engineers.
