MINDEF welcomes students with a passion for Singapore's defence to join our Internship Programme which provides them 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

Besides 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.

The application window for undergraduate internships is currently closed. Please check back in Feb 202X for the application opening for the next internship run.
