Internship / Work-Integrated Education (WIE)

Work-Integrated Education (WIE) is "work-based learning experiences (e.g., internship) which take place in an organisational context relevant to a student's future profession, or the development of generic skills that will be valuable in that profession."

All full-time undergraduate students of COMP are required to complete a mandatory WIE component as part of their curriculum. Our students have gained valuable working experiences at international companies as well as government and related organisations, e.g. BNP Paribas, Disneyland, Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Pegasus, Hong Kong Observatory, Hospital Authority, HSBC, IBM, Microsoft, DHL. The opportunities not only allow them to gain real-world experience but also possess a comprehensive and impressive resume to improve their employability after graduation.


Overseas Internship and International WIE

Some of our students undertake internships in overseas countries such as the USA, Canada, Germany, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Singapore, Indonesia and Taiwan to broaden their understanding of how the computing and information technology sectors operate. The cross-cultural understanding they develop is critical to their future careers and personal appreciation of this globalised era.
