ADSC Internships

See our research page to see what types of projects ADSC interns participate in.

ADSC accepts applications for internships year-round from strong students in:

  • computer science
  • electrical engineering
  • math

Specifically, we are looking for top students with interest and experience in computer vision, image processing, machine learning, computer-human interaction, networking and/or security. Our internships are primarily designed for undergraduate or masters students. ADSC's internships offer the opportunity to consider a career in research and contribute to an ongoing cutting-edge research project while building professional connections. ADSC interns collaborate closely with a variety of researchers, from on-site ADSC graduate students and postdoctorates to faculty and external collaborators. Many of ADSC's interns become co-authors on project publications and most ADSC undergraduate interns go on to prestigious graduate programs.

  • Undergraduates and Masters Students: ADSC is particularly interested in third or fourth year (honors) undergraduates or Masters students from local, as well as overseas, universities. For students from overseas, three-month internships are available under the Singapore International Pre-Graduate Awards (SIPGA) during any part of the year. Interns can earn generous monthly stipends and ADSC assists with airfare, accommodations, bench fees and other allowances.
  • Ph.D. Students: Local and overseas Ph.D. students are welcome to apply for internships. International Ph.D. candidates who can be available for longer periods of time can be supported under the A*STAR Research Attachment Programme (ARAP). Under the program, Ph.D. students from overseas universities may spend one to two years at ADSC under joint supervision of ADSC, the A*STAR Research Institute and the students' home university.

To Apply for an Intern Position:

ADSC internships offer a unique opportunity for students from around the world to discover the opportunities afforded through a career in research while enjoying tropical Asia in an urban environment.

Visit and select the internship option from the main menu. Applicants will be asked to submit:

  • resume
  • minimum of 2 recommendation letters
  • transcript from their undergraduate and graduate institution(s) (if applicable)
  • short statement about their internship and long-term goals

To assist, ADSC will apply for internship work permits for its interns who are not Singaporean citizens or permanent residents. To qualify for the permit, students must be enrolled in a degree program at the time that the internship begins. For example, a student who will complete his or her degree in May and start another degree program in September cannot obtain an internship work permit for June - August. ADSC invites students who have recently completed a Bachelors or Masters degree and will not immediately seek a higher degree to apply for ADSC's research-oriented software and hardware engineer positions.

See our current interns page and our ADSC alumni page for more information on students who have interned at ADSC. If you have further questions, contact ADSC.
