Student Testimonials


“This internship has helped me to understand businesses not only from a consumer’s standpoint but from the business’ and business owner's standpoint. I have strengthened my soft skills and enjoy going around Singapore meeting and speaking with business owners about the difficulties they faced. I really enjoy going out to meet different clients, as it is nice to hear and be able to see first-hand and speak with business owners about what challenges or difficulties they faced. It has been eye-opening for me to get an inside view of how businesses in Singapore operate and deal with challenges caused by the pandemic."

"The student internship in GovTech has allowed me to learn a massive amount of new knowledge and has helped me improve my technical skills greatly. I have also been able to strengthen my soft skills such as communication, project and schedule management, collaboration etc. I am glad to have had this opportunity to look at how government agencies operate and the projects that they are doing. During this one year-long internship, a sense of responsibility and self-discipline had been instilled in me since I had to take charge of my own project and complete tasks before deadlines. The projects assigned to me were very meaningful and I am very happy that these projects will be able to hugely benefit others. This internship has definitely exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed working in GovTech."

Organisation Testimonials

“Government Technology Agency and Temasek Polytechnic started collaborating on a yearlong internship in 2021. Throughout the internship period from April 2021 to March 2022, we were impressed by TP's students strong technical foundations, ability to communicate effectively and ability to articulate well despite being students.

They were keen and motivated learners that take the initiative to enrol in courses to hone their skill set so that they can match up to and even go beyond their work requirements. They were also able to independently experiment and debug their own applications, demonstrating familiarity with web development, machine learning/statistics fundamentals and networking and algorithmic development. They can communicate effectively with peers and colleagues to assist and receive feedback about their work, despite the challenges associated with remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

"Temasek Poly (TP) Internship Programme provides a unique opportunity for a selected group of talented students to work within Pixel Mechanics. Students on board were dedicated, allowing them to experience a wide range of skillsets during the programme; which was mutually beneficial to the students and Pixel Mechanics. By the end of the programme, we could identify promising people for full-time job offers, and students would have gained an understanding of expectations to kick off their career.”
