About The Program
Futuristic Singapore is a dream location for this high-level STEM internship. Autonomous taxis cruise the streets, solar-celled super trees grow plants for food, and a glass biome houses a cloud forest. The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is part of what makes Singapore a global innovation hub. In this program, pursue a passion for research and answer the most pressing questions in your field. Working full-time with scientists and engineers, expand your research skills and contribute to a national project. A*STAR’s centers, Fusionopolis and Biopolis, house state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, such as a 3-D visualization chamber. Outside the lab, a world of cultural adventures await.
