Students who intend to go for industrial training in May 2022 trimester, please start the pre-registration process in week 2 of Jan 2022 trimester.
Please note that you need to FULFILL the WHOLE 18 weeks of industrial training in May 2022 trimester, in the date indicated above.
Please refer to the pre-registration process below.
1 semester for pre-registration and looking for jobs. 1 semester for the actual industrial training.
Students who are under probation during the pre-registration semester are NOT allowed to go for industrial training.
For example: A student intends to go for industrial training in Oct 2011 semester. He is required to pre-register and look for internship job in May 2011 semester. However in May 2011 semester, this student is under probation due to poor academic results (GPA < 2.0) in Jan 2011 semester. Hence, this student is NOT eligible to go for industrial training in Oct 2011.
Form: Please refer to the FICT Pre-registration form in your FICT Industrial Training Portal,
print out and submit to FICT FGO (You must submit this form)
FICT WILL NOT ACCEPT any pre-registration for all students that are under probation.
Student can only appeal to add industrial training (as a unit) AFTER the academic result is out (GPA), in order to prove that he/she is out of probation. This is a SPECIAL grace procedure based on special circumstances, NOT an obligatory procedure for FICT.
If you are under probation (in the previous semester), and you are out of probation (in this semester), and you still want to go for industrial training, special approval may be given, ONLY to those who are in your last semester of your degree program.
Submit the industrial training pre-registration during the first two weeks of the semester (of your industrial training), clearly indicates that you are a student who is out of probation.
Together with the pre-registration form, submit an official letter of request to industrial training with justifiable reasons and your signature, to Dean to FICT, cc to Deputy Dean of Industrial Training. Please submit your 4 undertaking letters (signed), and photocopied letter of offer too. Submit all these 7 documents, otherwise FICT WON'T register you for industrial training.
You HAVE ALREADY FOUND your own internship placement. FICT WILL NOT help you to look for placement. However, you CAN email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and attend the Industrial Exposure Day.

The discretion of whether or not to accept a student as an industrial trainee lies entirely with the company and not with the University. A student should prepare him/herself conversantly for the job interview, e.g. the company may test the student on his/her skills and knowledge of the relevant subject domains.
Only one job placement per student.
Students must accept the FIRST job offered to them.
NO changing nor SWAPPING of jobs upon CONFIRMED placement without obtaining approval from their Faculty.
All placements must be for FULL TIME work. Subject to expressed instruction by the Supervisor in Charge, students are not allowed to complete their assignment in places, times and tasks of high risk other than mutually and officially agreed and specified in advance by the University and the Company.
NO job hopping. If a student wants to leave his/her current placement, he/she must provide justification to the Faculty and his/her company, and receive the approval from the faculty BEFORE he/she can leave his/her current placement.
No working at close relative's company. All students are required to declare in the form in order to avoid conflict of interest.
Payment by the company as the allowance for industrial trainees is encouraged, but not a requirement.
Final placements will be decided by the Industrial Training Committee whether the students apply for their positions through the University or on their own.
