Summer Internship

Summer Internship

For BCA Program

For BCA Program summer projects are undertaken after the second and fourth semesters. These projects are meant to help students appreciate the applications of knowledge in realtime scenario. It increases their practical exposure.

For B.Tech Program

For the development of institutionalized linkages with society and industry, unique Summer Internship Programs (SIP) are offered.

The Summer Internship Programs (SIP) 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 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 three Summer Internship Programs: SIP-I and SIP-II, each of two months’ duration, implemented during the summers following the first and second year of study, and SIP-III, of five and a half months’ duration, implemented in either the VII Semester or the VIII Semester, during the final year.

The Summer Internship Programs offer all the three partners in the conduct of the programs, viz., the students, the external organization, and the Faculty of Science and Technology, several benefits.
