Internship allows students to experience real work environment and gain a competitive edge while studying. They will be able to practise theories and case studies into real work scenario, thus able to adapt to the challenges and demands in the work environment.

For Engineering students

internship is overseen by the Faculty’s industrial placement coordinator. It is compulsory for engineering students to complete industrial placement via the unit of study, EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering, in order to complete their studies. Please contact Mr Tiong Siing Kieh (his e-mail: sktiong@swinburne.edu.my)

If you have completed EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering and wish to gain further industry experience through a non-assessed internship, you may apply for an internship placement application letter here.

For non-engineering students

Internship for non-engineering students are usually done during their study break i.e. December to February or June to August. To apply for an internship placement, please complete and submit Internship Application Letter

For international students

International students are allowed to do their internship in Malaysia under their International Student Visa/Pass. Permission to do internship at the end of their studies is only given on a case-to-case basis. This is to allow the International Student Services team to track the movement of international students while they are still under Student Visa/Pass and for insurance purposes.

Internship insurance coverage
All students doing internship are covered by insurance. The insurance coverage letter will be provided to current students/interns after the internship has been confirmed by internship hosts.
