Industrial And Research Attachment Programme (IRAP)

The SST IRAP enables students who are keen on the practical application of their skills and competencies, and first-hand experience in understanding the functions, operations and challenges of the various organisations in their respective industries.

For Companies

What are the options available?

SST students are grounded in science and mathematics. However, they are also well-rounded individuals who are adept at using technology. The following are some of projects our students have worked on:

Solar Powered House


Students did a project on harvesting solar energy to support electrical appliances in a household. A prototype was then adopted and tested in a guardhouse of one of the companies our students interned with.



Students did a project in Aquaponics where crops and fish are grown together in a recirculating system, to maximise the use of energy and nutrients. The system allows for the harvest of a large amount of vegetation and fish proteins.

Egg Story

Students were given the opportunity to learn about the technology and benefits behind the production process of pasteurised eggs during their stint at N&N Agriculture Pte Ltd. At the end of their internship, they produced a video to raise awareness about modern agricultural methods.

Students in SST take up Art, Design, Media and Technology (ADMT), a subject that fuses key elements from the various disciplines of Art, Design, Media and Technology into their lesson experiences. One such example is the SST – 3M Innovation Challenge where our students built prototypes using the 3M Innovators’ Toolkit, following a given theme of Education, Safety and Aging Population.

Instructional Video for Volunex Machine

Students were given the opportunity to produce an Instruction Video for the Volunex i3 Mini 3D Printer with Auto-Bed Leveling (ABL), design 3D products and interact with customers. In the process, they honed their communication, design, filming and editing skills.

Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) PIXEL Labs Introduction Video

Students produced an introductory video on the makerspace at IMDA PIXEL Labs during their stint with IMDA. The video serves to bring out and explain the facilities available at IMDA’s PIXEL LABS and how this would help startups and the public at large. The interviewees include start-ups, students who have benefitted from the usage of the labs to do their projects as well as members of the public who have attended the workshops.

KKH Paediatrics Anaesthesia Handbook App

Students from SST Inc, a tech conglomerate made up of smaller start-ups, worked with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital to develop the KKH Paediatrics Anaesthesia Handbook application (app). The app provides some basic information on the practice of Paediatric Anaesthesia and is available on both IOS and Android. The KK Hospital and the Singapore Anaesthesia Refresher Course team, acknowledged and thanked our students for the work, at the 3rd Singapore Anaesthesia Refresher Course.

The following are some examples of apps created by our students.

Water Innovation Challenge 2014

In 2014, our Media Studies students provided media support for the Water Innovation Challenge 2014. The event was hosted at Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College East, in conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week 2014. Their coverage included interviews with participants and organisers, documentary footages and highlights from the event.

Community Plumbing Challenge 2015

Our Media Club students were invited by WorldSkills Foundation to cover the Community Plumbing Challenge 2015 held at School 125, Mukit Dham, Nashik, India. The students created a series of educational videos for the first Community Plumbing Challenge together with the Brazilian Autodesk Students.

Community Plumbing Challenge 2016

Students from the Media Studies Department worked amongst a melting pot of cultures, talents and passionate changemakers for the Community Plumbing Challenge 2016. They produced a series of documentaries featuring the efforts to curb water sanitary issues in Diepsloot, Africa. They showcased their documentaries at the 7th Annual Be the Change Exposition and were crowned as Singapore winners for the Design for Change Challenge.

*Note: Due to the nature of work, SST recommends project-based work where students are not required to be desk-bound.
