Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) provides students with the opportunity to undertake real work. Held over the span of eight months, it is designed to be more in-depth than a traditional internship. You will gain real work experience and apply the theories you learn in class with actual practice.

Overseas Immersion Programme

All students will have to complete a three-week attachment at the home campus of Newcastle University where they get to live and study in Newcastle, United Kingdom. The programme itinerary will include library and career talks, seminars, research and literature review workshops to prepare students for their final-year dissertation projects, as well as visits to companies, museums and key cultural sites.

Career Options

  • Shipbuilding and Rig-building Yards
  • Classification Societies
  • Republic of Singapore Navy
  • Oil and Gas Companies
  • Maritime Port Authority
  • Shipping and Ship Management Companies
