We strive to provide employers and industry partners the most suitable platforms for the recruitment of our students. Be it a small-scale tea session or a large-scale networking event, there will always be an opportunity to cater to your companies’ needs.
We would be especially keen in establishing collaborations to provide our students with internship and career opportunities in the following areas:
- Architecture and Sustainable Design
- Engineering Product Development
- Engineering Systems and Design
- Information Systems Technology and Design
The 16-week undergraduate internship takes place every summer, from May to August. If you are keen to offer an internship opportunity for our students, please send the job descriptions for us to upload via the internship portal by early January.
Structured Internship (Masters in Architecture)
When our students from the Architecture and Sustainable Design pillar complete their undergraduate studies, those who choose to take up the Masters in Architecture course would be required to embark on a structured internship programme prior to the start of the course.
This programme specifically caters to the architecture students and industry, and aims to place students in internships that further develop their knowledge in architecture. The 16-week structured internship period falls between September and December each year. If you are keen to offer our students with an internship experience in your company, please send the job descriptions for the structured internship to us by June.
To prepare the students for their theses, the faculty will propose various themes for the students/companies to work on during the internship period.
The tea session provides a casual environment in which companies may connect with our students. Over light refreshments, representatives from the company may discuss career opportunities and promote the company to a selected group of students.
The tea-session is generally recommended as a first point of contact, allowing companies to get a sense and idea of the students’ current interests in SUTD.
Should tea-sessions prove too cozy for you, recruitment talks provide an avenue for companies to reach out to a larger number of students. It is usually scheduled from September to March on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, the talks may take the form of an introduction to the company, or sharing of job opportunities and career tips. Should your company wish to conduct a talk or presentation on our premises to raise awareness amongst our students, feel free to contact us to discuss possible arrangement.
Industry Night (Networking)
We also host an Industry Night twice a year, generally in September and October. The Industry Night in September takes place after the Learning Celebration Carnival and gives our students the opportunity to present the projects they were working on during the summer internship.
Both the Industry Nights in September and October are provide networking opportunities for both companies, and students to mingle and get to know each other better.
Whilst it serves primarily as a networking event, it is not uncommon for companies to present jobs and scout for potential interns/employees during Industry Night.

You will also get the chance to network with our other students, who would be on the lookout for internship positions over the upcoming summer.
