INFORMATION FOR ORGANISATIONS

 

Objectives

The objective of GIP is to enable graduate students to apply their newly acquired computing knowledge at organisations. Graduates are more adept in problem solving at workplace. The programme is an opportunity for organisations to tap into the talent that is being groomed in our School. Organisations can also offer long term placement to suitable or outstanding graduates after the internship.

 

Target Group

Master of Computing Students (Full Time). Student placement would begin at the end of Semester 2 of each academic year frm May to July.

 

Eligibility

  • Must be full-time students under the Master of Computing (or PhD) program.
  • CAP must be at least 3.5 for Masters Students.
  • All nationalities are welcome to apply

 

Budget

Organisations are required to pay an allowance to each student participating in the internship programme. The allowance to be paid is determined by the organisations. The School recommends a minimum allowance of S$1000 per student per month (CPF exempted) as only students who meet stringent requirements are allowed to participate in GIP. This allowance will be revealed to the students. Students will follow the working hours of the organisation in which they are attached.

Medical Leave

Supervisors from a participating organisation will be informed by the students being hosted if they are sick or need to consult a doctor. A medical certificate will be submitted to the supervisors for medical leave. Supervisors' prior knowledge is needed if students wish to take leave of absence.

 

Vacation Leave

Organisations may grant paid vacation leave to the students at their own discretion.

 

Reservist (In-camp training)

Organisations should allow students to go for their in-camp training.

 

School Matters

Organisations should release students if they request to attend to school matters such as registration of modules, etc. Organisations may verify the request with the School's GIP coordinator.

 

Work Permit

Organisations need not apply work permit for students as industrial attachment is not considered a form of employment.

 

Visa

Organisations should provide an offer letter to students on overseas attachment to apply for a visa.
