We believe in giving our students a holistic learning experience. On top of classroom learning, RP students go on internships with leading organisations, collaborate on projects with industry leaders and compete in national or international competitions.
These experiences allow our students to hone the skills and expertise they learnt in the classroom in the real world. Here are a few examples.
The skies’ the limit for Eunice who interned at dnata Singapore, where she applied her classroom knowledge to solve real-world problems.
She also had the chance to visit the different departments and understand the responsibilities of the various job roles and how everyone plays a part to ensure a smooth aircraft turnaround in airport operations.
Eunice also worked on an industry project with dnata’s catering department to create an e-learning courseware that help onboard new hires and guide them about the operations in the catering facility.
A team of RP Diploma in Sonic Arts students, Tang Yu Hsi, Tang Suet Peng, Ku Zhi Ying, and Muhammad Aminuddin Bin Rosli, worked alongside professional audio engineers at MediaCorp to produce and arrange music for various performances for the President’s Star Charity show.
Aminuddin has this to share about his experience, “I’ve learnt that it’s crucial to listen and know which part of the songs we are recording, and take cues from the producer to make the entire process smoother. As I aspire to be a recording engineer, this project gave me a glimpse into what it’s like to work in the real world!”
Suhayl pursued his passion for the outdoors with an exciting internship at Houbii Spot, an adventure challenge rope course at the Singapore Zoo with breathtaking views of nature.
On his busiest days, Suhayl assisted over 300 enthusiastic climbers - both young and old – to conquer a two-storey high ropes course with swinging obstacles while ensuring a fun and safe experience for all.
Suhayl’s supervisor, Michelle Ng shared, "We don’t look at Suhayl just as our intern, he is a reliable team member – the best gift a manager can ask for. Suhayl comes to work with great enthusiasm, an attitude that we value deeply at Houbii!”
A team of RP School of Infocomm students conducted a service-learning project in collaboration with Mendaki during the vacation, where they taught children the basics of Python coding. The workshop, titled Coding for Kids, was spearheaded by Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) student Claudia Liew.
To better help the upper primary students appreciate the basics of programming, Claudia and her friends from DISM gamified the experience by introducing basic concepts of programming through various interactive games and mini exercises. The result? A simple command-line Rock-Paper-Scissor game was created from scratch by the beneficiaries. How cool is that?
