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.

Discover the various roles which DXOs play by taking on projects in areas such as Policy, Finance, Communications, Public Affairs, National Education, Research and Psychology. The projects will be matched to the application based on availability of projects and to the intern’s field of study and interest.

Our internship programmes are available from May to Jul and December to January each year

 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 makes up the two pillars of our defence policy
