The Overseas Internship Attachment (OIA) is a 6 week program for 2nd year students opting to go overseas for their internship instead of doing it locally. Besides acquiring specific skills relevant to their diploma course, the OIA aims to raise the students’ awareness of the economic and social developments of the country that they will be attached to, and help them develop a greater appreciation of other cultures. Training programmes are available for students from the Diploma in Aerospace Electronics (DASE), Diploma in Computer Engineering (DCPE), Diploma in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (DEEE), and Diploma in Energy Systems and Management in various locations such as Taiwan, Xiamen, Tianjin, Changchun, Beijing, Thailand and Japan (see table below). Only students whose CGPA is at least 2.5 are eligible to apply for OIA. Financial Assistance is also available to students.
