“My internship experience with Chee Yam Contractors has allowed me to gain a wide exposure from a Main Contractor’s perspective. I worked on various assignments given that expanded my learning horizons beyond lectures and tutorials, and it has helped me to gain valuable insights and experience at the site. The colleagues I met at work were both approachable and kind to guide me in my assignments as well.

My 10 weeks of internship programme was detailed and well planned. On top of that, I was also encourage to plan out my own internship programme to suit my interest and this to me, is a very good initiative by the company for interns.

I was also given plenty of opportunities and space to understudy different staffs from the various teams; contracts team and projects team, and it helped me to better understand and appreciate the different aspects of the civil industry from procurement to the completion of works.
