Undergraduate Programme > Work-Study Programme
Our work-study program was first introduced in 1975 in the belief that combining course work and industrial training would narrow the gap between academic education and practical engineering. After their second year of study, all students can participate in the work-study program on a voluntary basis. Each participant is required to spend one year, as full-time employee, in a selected local electronic or IT company. The student will continue his/her final year of study after the internship. In the recent years, there are on average 50% of our students who opted for work-study.
