The enhanced Summation Programme will offer our students greater internship and attachment opportunities in the deep tech sector, showing them how exciting it is and what future jobs will look like. By building up the students’ skills and passion for deep tech, we can expand the pool of specialised talent in this sector, and encourage more startup companies to scale and grow.- Professor Kam Chan Hin, Deputy Provost (Education), NTU
SGInnovate has provided me the opportunity to connect with institutions in Singapore that are experts in Artificial Intelligence & Computer Vision, and learn how I might apply my expertise to create impact in real world situations.- Gabriel Wong, SUTD student and Summation Programme Round 1 apprentice
In mathematics, summation (Σ) is the addition of a sequence of numbers, the result being their sum or total. Σ is SGInnovate’s apprenticeship opportunity developed with the summation theory in mind -
to transform students’ experience, knowledge and skills gained over the years, culminating into a “total”; an application of what was learnt before entering the workplace.
Over 3-6 months, a curated pool of students in multiple disciplines from local and overseas Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) will be placed within a selected number of Singapore's promising deep tech organisations.
∑ is more than just an internship. Students will partner experienced software and engineering professionals to embark on innovative and exciting projects focusing on deep tech such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning and blockchain with the aim of helping organisations solve real world issues.
∑ will enable students to gain invaluable feedback and mentorship during this apprenticeship journey, while providing them an opportunity to hone and test their skills – to be better at their game.
This is also a fantastic opportunity for startups and organisations to work with the best students equipped with strong deep tech skills. The organisations’ ability to attract top talent lies in their ability to offer apprentices an enriching learning experience through meaningful mentorship and impactful projects.
