Work Study

Our Work Study Programme (WSP) will be held in the summer of every year, in the belief that combining course work and industrial training will narrow the gap between academic training and practical training. Students can participate in the Work Study Program on a voluntary basis, one year before their final year of study. Each participant is required to spend about 1 year as a full-time employee in a selected local company, engaging in Information Technology, Telecommunications, and Application Services. The student will continue his/her final year of study after the internship.
