“As an intern under Synapxe, working at Institute of Mental Health (IMH), I was able to learn various new skills and gained much insight and experience. Through direct interaction with several hospital staff and gathering of their feedback, I created solutions that could address their problems at work. I also participated in hospital events such as Nurses Day, where we raised funds for the hospital. I would like to thank NYP for the great opportunity and especially Mr Jonathan Jiang (my Industry Supervisor), as well as Mr Boon Seng Meng (my Student Internship Mentor) for their wonderful support and guidance.”

"I had a very fulfilling and enriching overseas internship experience at IBM in Canada! On top of honing my technical skills, doing an overseas internship far from home also allowed me to pick up life skills and become more independent. There were also opportunities for out of classroom learning, such as volunteering with IBM to plant trees. I would like to thank NYP for the great opportunity and shout out to my mentors Ms Lim Ai Huey and Victor Chua for the guidance."
