A: They use attachments to spot and recruit NTU talents.

Q: What have ExxonMobil, Credit Suisse, HP, GSK and many employers in common with NTU?

20 weeks IA and 10 weeks IO, how will it affect me?


I can do more electives during semester since IO is from May to July Scope and depth of learning/experience is very different between a 20 week IA project and a 10 week IO project
20 weeks > the usual 3 months job probation period; sufficient time for employers to assess the potential, capability and other attributes of NTU students

Is it worth for me to invest one semester to do IA? I gain more work experience and possibly a chance to be recruited by the company if it uses attachment to spot talents. I like to take up additional electives so that I can gain more knowledge in those subjects. 10 weeks of work experience is good enough for me.

What do employers say about NTU students?

For 28 years, NTU has established a comprehensive Industrial Attachment programme to equip our graduates with practical knowledge and skills that are relevant to industries that enable NTU graduates to compete in the globally competitive job market.
