MINDEF Internship Programme
MINDEF welcomes undergraduates with a passion for Singapore's defence to join our Internship Programme. With our objective of providing students with real life and practical working experience in an assigned department, interns can expect to develop their skills and put into practice knowledge obtained from textbooks. The programme is also a valuable opportunity for students to consider various career options in MINDEF upon graduation.

What we look for in our Interns
Beside academic qualifications, interns should possess a deep interest in the defence of Singapore and want to play a part in diplomacy and deterrence, which make up the two pillars of our defence policy.

Drop us an email at, along with your resume, education transcripts (university unofficial transcript, A' level or Polytechnic certificate and O’ level certificate), and scans of the front and back of your I/C.
