With an ever-increasing number of students opting for various engineering courses, lakhs of engineers graduate out of colleges every year. But not every graduate has the professional and practical knowledge to become an engineer. This makes it extremely difficult for freshers to secure a job. That is why it has become imperative for students to gain practical experience through various internships during the course of their graduation. But how do you get technical internships that will boost your career and give you the necessary exposure to the professional environment? This is where Internkeeda comes into action!
Last year, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) made internships mandatory for engineering students to improve skills of fresh graduates and to provide them career development opportunities and gain practical experience in their chosen field or discipline. It has been decided that a minimum of 14 to 20 credits of Internship/Entrepreneurial activities/Project work/ Seminar and Inter/Intra Institutional Training may be counted toward B. Tech. degree programme and 10-14 credits for three year diploma programme. Here, 1 credit is equivalent to at least 40-45 hours of work. Therefore, a full-time intern is expected to invest 40 - 45 hours per week on Internship, Training, and other similar activities. This means students have to invest about 600 to 700 hours of total internship duration for B. Tech and 450-500 hours for diploma. Internships may be full-time or part-time; i.e. they can be full-time in the summer vacation and part-time during the academic session. The new rule implies that three internships are mandatory for engineering students in order to complete their graduation.
