Students at IIIT Sri City are highly encouraged to seek internships during summer irrespective of which year they are enrolled in the institute.
While it may sound quite aspirational that we are encouraging even the UG first year students to seek internships, we believe that an industry experience (from the first year) will go a long way in helping a student launch a bright career, from our institute. So, we encourage students as soon as they join to even get work-from-home internships. We feel that every single aspect of learning should be implemented rigorously and executed with due diligence. Internships are one such milestone at the IIITS.
Of course, our focus is to get the pre-final year students to get summer internships, as there is a good chance that these internships can get converted to Pre-Placement Offers (PPO). The Placement Office take significant effort to get internships to students and does the following:
- Contact companies routinely to see internship opportunities for pre-final year students,
- Share various contests that are happening domestically in the country and internationally,
- Seek companies for projects so that students can complete the projects at home and add it to their resume, and
- Expose students to various international internships opportunities.
Students are also encouraged to take academic internship opportunities both here in India and abroad. The placement office also brings such opportunities to students so that they can apply for many opportunities.
Microsoft, Amazon, Yahoo, Swiggy, ZS Associates, Bosch, Commvault are few of them where our students are currently indulged in their high end lead projects.
That our students are able to find internships in leading organizations in the country is a testament to the fact that IIITS has always stood as an ideal learning and productive foundation for the students.
