about wie

The Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC), HKSAR Government has set up under the Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF) the STEM Internship Scheme to encourage STEM students to gain innovation and technology (I&T)-related work experience during their studies and to foster their interest in pursuing a career in I&T after graduation, so as to enlarge the local I&T talent pool.

Notes for Employers

We would like to solicit your support for the Scheme through offering I&T-related internship positions to our well-equipped STEM students.
