The Defence Science & Technology (DS&T) sector provides multiple openings, streams, and programmes that cater to applicants from a variety of experience levels and backgrounds — from students to mid-career switchers. We strive to provide a rewarding experience for all our employees by aligning their interests with a role and career path that optimises their capabilities, talents and growth.
Graduates & Professionals
Our agencies offer a managerial career track and technical career track for graduates and experienced professionals with different levels of professional experience and interests. These are further staggered across the various programme centres and business functions unique to each agency. Whatever your goals are — be it in digital specialties, engineering, research or corporate strategy — we will work closely with you to reach them through a defined and flexible career path.
Our internship programmes provide an invaluable source of experience for undergraduates, polytechnic and JC students looking for an entry point or a taste of work in defence tech. Guided by mentors, our interns take on project related tasks to hone their skills and critical thinking in a professional capacity. Those who flourish during their internship placements have the chance to secure scholarships and/or full-time job offers upon graduation. Some of our most successful employees are former interns, and we’re looking to further support this pathway moving forward.
Our scholarships are open to students holding Singapore Citizenship pursuing a diploma, ‘A’ levels or undergraduate degree in relevant STEM disciplines. To help you achieve your educational goals and make the transition to a professional setting, successful applicants are supported by our scholarship officers for career development and receive a wide range of benefits that cover tuition fees, living allowances, internship opportunities, and more. Application eligibilities and benefits vary across scholarships and agencies, so be sure to check them out to review your most suitable options.
