Human resources hold importance roles in the globalisation era to compete and survive. One of the tasks of a university is to provide human resources ready to enter the working world. The importance of integrating students’ classroom learning with real-world practical experience has been recognised as a vital component of student engagement and development in higher education (Stirling et al., 2014). There are a lot of researches that say that the needs in the industry cannot be filled by college graduates. The reasons are the lack of communication, teamwork, and bad attitude as well as their inability to solve problems (Norina et al., 2013). To resolve the issue, one of the efforts is to have a good relationship between industry and academia. For instance, a student can directly involve in the industry and have an internship for some time. An internship is an opportunity for undergraduate students to incorporate work-related experience and knowledge into their formal education in a university by taking part in supervised and planned work in the real-world (Norina et al., 2013). Faculty of Computer Science has developed a course ‘internship project’ to prepare students for the world-of-work experience. Through this course, students have the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills learned in the college as well as the experiences in the industry.
