Each intern will be aligned to one of the following College faculties for the internship duration:

We are looking for applicants with passion for understanding the industry-academia collaborations and commercialisation. To take advantage of the internship, ideally you will be a quick learner used to working independently and dealing with unforeseen problems or circumstances in a proactive and methodical manner. You will also need to be able to plan and progress work activities, using initiative and judgement.
