Industrial Internship

The main objective of our internship program is to provide students with real-life industrial experience in an actual working environment to help them gain competitive advantage upon graduation.

By offering internship positions to our students, companies will be able to gain temporary support to match their business development needs. It is also a simple and effective way to identify high caliber candidates for future recruitment. On the other hand, by joining the internship program, students will acquire solid working experience in the real world, be able to sharpen their technical and interpersonal skills, and build valuable networks with professionals from the industry.

ECE students are equipped with technical skills in the following areas:

Analog VLSI
Computer Networks & Telecommunications
Control & Robotics
Integrated-Circuit and System Design
Microprocessor & Embedded Systems
Optics & Photonics
Signal Processing & Video Coding
Software Applications
Wireless Communication Systems

Our students also actively participate in various Student Competitions that enable them to sharpen their technical, communication, and presentation skills, and help them gain a deeper understanding of our society's different needs.

Summer Internship
2 - 3 months starting from early June.

Extended Internship
7 - 15 months starting from early June or early January.
