Student Internship Programme

The School of Informatics & IT conducts diploma courses which emphasise the effective application of technology to improve the lives of people, businesses and organisations. Our students acquire a strong foundation in IT and specialize in areas like big data, business analytics, financial services, forensics, cyber security, game development, software solutions design, network management, smart solutions and so on.

Through the Student Internship Programme (SIP), we aim to provide our students with opportunities to work on real projects with Industry. Our students are available for between 6 to 9 months for internships in Singapore or overseas.

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."

"Through the SIP experience, I was able to further develop interpersonal skills such as communication and collaboration as well as a growth mind set (i.e. lifelong learning). Throughout the internship programme, a sense of self-discipline was instilled in me. I had fulfilled my own expectations by developing the patience in teaching children and handling their behaviours. More significantly, I had managed to give my students a great learning experience with robotics and coding that I would have loved to experience at their age."

"Since 2011, Hitachi Asia Ltd (HAS) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) have started the collaboration on Internship Program. The program provides opportunities for the students to learn how to work as a project team and apply their academic learnings to tackle real-life challenges. I am always impressed by TP students’ hands-on and analytical ability in problem solving, as well as their enthusiasm to learn new technologies.
