Summer InternshipThe summer Internship Program (SIP) aims at widening students’ perspective by providing an exposure to real life organizational situation. Summer Internship is an important and integral part of the academic curriculum. The Summer Internship lasts for 10- 12 weeks and tests the students thoroughly on their learning. These internships give students insight into the practicalities of work in the corporate world across various sectors. During these internships, the students undertake projects under the guidance of company senior executives (project guides) and the Institute mentors (Faculty Guides) closely interact with the students on a week to week basis. The objective of the internship is to enable students to gain first-hand experience in a particular industry. It helps students with ample opportunities to innovate and challenge ideas imbibed in the first year. It also assists students in being more receptive to market needs, and in deciding their area of specialization in the second year.
We are thankful to the following Organizations for giving opportunities to our students to do their SIP in 2012
