The Undergraduate Professional Internship Programme (UPIP) aims to provide Science undergraduates* with the opportunity to perform structured internship in an organisation during their undergraduate study.

Internship helps students craft a fulfilling university journey through meaningful work experience. This programme allows students to engage in career preparation and job seeking experiences, and also hone their interpersonal, communications and other soft skills as they actively partake in the day-to-day business operations in an organisation. Students are presented with opportunities to apply their discipline-related knowledge and professionalism in an actual work setting, thus allowing them to gain experiential learning that complements their course activity.

Upon successful completion of UPIP, students will be awarded Modular Credits (MCs) that would count towards the Unrestricted Elective component of their graduation requirements.
