Because Knowledge Matters !
Internships are designed to expand the depth and breadth of academic learning in particular areas of study. It is an opportunity to receive experience in applying theories learned in the classroom to specific experiences in the community and work world. An internship can also heighten awareness of community issues, motivate to create opportunities, embrace new ideas, and give direction to positive change. A successful internship can give valuable information in making decisions about the direction of future studies or employment. An internship is an opportunity to not only use and develop industry-related knowledge and skills, but also to enhance some of the skills that are transferable to any professional work setting. This internship may be first introduction to the world of work, or one may have been exposed to professionalism many times before. No matter where skills and understanding of professionalism are concerned, internship is a chance to develop them even further.
Addressing the issue of practical exposure, internship is woven in the curriculum of study, which has adequate weightage in the evaluation system too. Therefore, it is suggested to students to undergo internships during summer as there is ample time available for transition from one semester to another. Summer internships are usually part of an engineering course curriculum. Summer internship provides a platform for students to gain experience, besides practicing their learning skills beyond textbooks and lectures. During internships, engineering students gain knowledge from this practical training approach. Students who neglect summer internship are usually lack of expertise & skills required as a promising engineer that are required in the overall growth as a matured professional engineer.
Therefore, in succinct, the Summer Internship Program is meant to bridge the gap between the real-life business and academic institutions. It is a simulation of the business environment and enables students to experience the rigors of a business organization.
The objectives of Summer Internship include:
- To provide students with opportunities to apply the concepts learnt in the class-room to real-life situations
- To sensitize students to the nuances of a work place by assigning time-bound projects in a company
- To provide students a platform to network which will be useful to further their career prospects
- The Summer Internship Program emphasizes the evaluation of the student’s work at the work center with active involvement of the management. These efforts have strengthened the close industry relationship at academic centers and have also paved the way for pre-placement offers to the students
As a course requirement, every student of JEC Kukas is expected to complete a 6-8 week industry internship in the summer between the second and third year or third and fourth year of the course. The summer placement process is held to facilitate these internships for the students. Most firms offer students full-time positions based on the internships (pre-placement offers).
Summer Internship Benefits
Summer internships provide extremely valuable experience in your chosen field. If you’re too busy to commit as an intern during the College year, the summer could be a great option for you. While other students are focusing on play during summer break, you can get a foot in the door at one of your favorite companies by interning and learning everything you can. So consider a summer internship and get ahead of the curve!
Typically, employers start looking as early as January and begin to fill up internship positions by March for that summer.
Companies offer some of their best internships during the summer and some companies only offer summer internships. Why? For starters, interns produce some of their best work when they’re 100% focused. During the college year, interns often juggle college work and activities and can only work at their internship a few hours each week, whereas summer interns can fully immerse themselves in work. Employers can also attract talent from all locations for internships over the summer months.
What can you expect as a summer intern and beyond?
You’ll learn about a company and its culture, the industry, and various job roles. You’ll also develop new skills and make new connections that very well might provide professional references for you some day. You’ll go through training, get feedback on your performance, and get career advice. During your summer internship, be sure to take the opportunity to build your communication skills and get familiar with common office software packages including Microsoft Word and Excel.
By the end of the internship, it is anticipated that interns will be able to:
