The HDB Internship Programme

In HDB, we have made it our mission to provide affordable, quality housing and a great living environment where communities thrive, as we strive to be an outstanding organisation with people committed to creating endearing homes that all are proud of.

For the past 60 years, the Housing & Development Board (HDB) has planned and shaped Singapore's unique skyline - building homes and towns and creating a world-class living environment for all. Through the years, continuous innovation and upgrading programmes have ensured that the heartlands remain our cherished home. Today, HDB has built more than 1 million flats in 24 towns and 3 estates across the island, housing over 80% of Singapore’s population.

If you are currently an undergraduate or a polytechnic student, we would like to invite you to take up an internship with us during your vacation or school term as part of your course requirements, to experience the work that we do, and to understand how we impact the lives of Singaporeans. We offer internship opportunities for Undergraduates as well as Polytechnic students across a wide range of disciplines, from Architecture and Engineering, to Economics and Computer Science to undertake projects in areas such as sustainable building design, housing research and community engagement. The internship duration can range from a few weeks to several months, depending on the nature of the project and your availability. 

During your internship, you will have the opportunity to visit prominent HDB developments such as The Pinnacle@Duxton and Punggol Waterway, hear from our officers about the work they do, and meet and mingle with our Top Management at a networking tea reception.

Submit your application together with a copy of your latest academic transcript.
