Overseas Internships

Bryan

SOI student Bryan Koh from the Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) is currently interning at Siam Commercial Bank, one of RP’s industry partners in Bangkok, Thailand. Some of his role as an intern at the Cyber Security department of the company is to perform penetration testing on web applications, Internet of Things (IOT) devices and VA


Bryan shares that he worked on a project involving Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) which is relatively new in IT Security, adding that he had the opportunity to try out multiple similar tools to see which helps improve the company’s defences against cyber-attacks.

Alfyan and Tan Qian Ting

SOI students Alfyan Sapwan and Tan Qian Ting launched their very own start-up company, LivingTech, through RP’s Business Incubation Centre.

LivingTech offers a new way of data analytics for farmers using Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).  The enterprise aims to provide users with an easy way of consuming the information of sensors, with the ultimate goal of a complete AI-controlled environment which requires minimum to zero human effort in managing crops.

The problem-solution duo of Alfyan and Qian Ting has secured $10,000 of funds to create a prototype for LivingTech solution.

Just like other start-ups, Qian Ting shares that the path ahead is rough and tough but he finds opportunity in it. He also added that in LivingTech they do not do the same thing every day, instead, they do everything every day.

LivingTech is incubated in RP, and was established as part of the students’ Entrepreneurial Immersion Programme (EIP).

“This overseas internship is LIT! Japan has so much to offer and that makes our overseas internship an enriching experience and yet challenging.” That’s how Tan Jun Liang describes his 5-month internship at the Institute of Technology, Gifu Kosen, Japan.

Having experienced the working culture in another country helped Jun Liang further develop his independence, broaden his cultural and environmental awareness, and enhance his communication skills.

Jun Liang works with Professor Tajima Koji on the project “Web Glossary for Classical Chinese Textbooks in Japan”. As part of the project, he developed a web application using HTML5, JavaScript and other programming languages and protocols. Moreover, Jun Liang’s work was recently showcased at Jinmoncon 2019 held in Ritsumeikan University – Osaka Ibaraki Campus.

Andrew-1

Andrew Ong Pang Woon finds his overseas internship experience as both eye-opening and rewarding.

“My internship company, Lifesense at Shenzhen, PRC, provides me with great opportunities to put my IT skills into test and further enhance my coding skills. With a very supportive team guiding me along, I am learning a lot more as I continue to work on developing a fitness-support application,” he shares with enthusiasm.

Andrew is grateful of his friendly and helpful colleagues who even bring him along to team dinners!
