Internships / Work Placement

PhoneLabs provides internships and work placement opportunities for motivated graduates and undergraduates who value start-up experience with rich learning opportunities. We are currently only accepting interns whose experience with us is counted towards their course requirements. Our current internships are unpaid.

Previous interns have made outstanding contributions in developing our web apps and 3D printed kits. Our apps and 3D printed kits are being used by schools and universities globally.

Engineering  /  Industrial Design

If you are completing a diploma or degree in Industrial Design or Engineering you may find value in participating on one of the following projects.

  1. Recreating existing physics and engineering experiments to PhoneLab experiments
  2. Creating an experimental challenge using 3D printed kits
  3. Training students/teachers and lectures in PhoneLabs
  4. Create physics and engineering challenges and documenting them.

In each of these projects, you will have the opportunity to develop your R&D skills and also develop one of your own projects. You will also be expected to work on multiple projects. Experience in SolidWorks will be an added advantage.

Most of our apps are web apps written in JavaScript. Our development work is done in Processing and OpenCV. We have the following projects:

  1. Develop mobile apps based on our current web apps (JavaScript)
  2. Image Processing
