For the development of institutionalized linkages with industry, unique Internship Programs are offered.
The Internship Programs ensure that linkages are developed and sustained with industrial and other organizations outside the world of academia. They serve as a formal method within the curriculum, to bring the realities of the world of work into the educational process.
The Internship Programs require that the students undergo the rigors of the professional world in form as well as in substance, and provide them with an opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to live situations. They differ from "Practical Training" as well as “Sandwich Schemes” in that the entire student education during the Internship Programs is supervised by faculty and forms a part of the students’ total credits toward their degree.
There are two Internship Programs : IP-I of two months duration, implemented during the summer following the second year of study, and IP-II of five and a half months duration, implemented in either the VII Semester or the VIII Semester, during the final year.
The Internship Programs offers several benefits to all the three partners in the conduct of the programs, viz., the students, the external organization, and the Institute:
