- The discretion of whether or not to accept a student as an industrial trainee lies entirely with the company and not with the University. A student should prepare him/herself conversantly for the job interview, e.g. the company may test the student on his/her technical skills and knowledge of the relevant course domains.
- NO CHANGING nor SWAPPING of jobs upon CONFIRMED placement without obtaining approval from their Faculty. Any complain from company might be considered as breach of university rules & regulation, disciplinary action will be taken against the student.
- All placements must be conducted for FULL TIME basis. Subject to express instruction by the Supervisor-in-charge, students are not allowed to complete their assignment in places, times and tasks of high risk other than mutually and officially agreed and specified in advance by both the University and the Company.
- NO job hopping. If a student wants to leave his/her current placement, he/she must provide justification to the Faculty and his/her Company, and receive the approval from the Faculty BEFORE he/she can leave his/her current placement.
- No working in close relative’s company to avoid conflict of interest.
- Payment by the Company as the allowance for industrial trainees is encouraged, but not a requirement. Should there be any allowance or any form of payment involved, it shall be the student’s responsibility, and not the University, to take all necessary measure to secure such allowance or payment.

Students are required to work out their own placement with the assistance of the Faculty’s Industrial Training Committee according to the procedures that have been set by the Faculty.
All students must inform the Faculty their industrial training appointment as soon as they receive the offer. Students are required to submit IT Placement Confirmation form (with the company REPLY SLIP/OFFER LETTER and LETTER OF UNDERTAKING AND INDEMNITY by student and parents/guardian) to their IT Coordinator before conducting their industrial training.
Deadline for placement process
- In the case of any student failing to secure an industrial training placement by the deadline stipulated by the Faculty, they will have to inform the Faculty within three (3) working days from the deadline, so that the Faculty can help them with other arrangements.

The Faculty’s Industrial Training Committee reserves the full right to decide on the final placement. The Faculty’s decision is final. If the student does not agree to the chosen placement determined by the Committee and the matter cannot be resolved between the student and the Committee, then the student will have to postpone his or her industrial training course to the following year.
