Students from the BEng(Computer Science) and BEng(Data Science & Engineering) are required to undergo Industrial Training to gain working experience in their field of study before graduation. Although it is not a requirement for BASc(Financial Technology) stream, our FinTech students are eager to gain real-world experience as a complement to their learning and academic training of the programme. Students are expected to take up internships that are related to the field of IT, Data Science, and FinTech; and interns must work under the supervision of experienced professionals and preferably with technical duties in their internship role.
There are two forms of internship for satisfying the BEng Internship requirement. However, the full-time and minimum duration requirements do not apply to FinTech students.
