An internship is an opportunity offered by an employer to the potential students, called interns, to work at an organization for a fixed, limited period of time. It is actually a magnificent opportunity to give the students’ career a head start. The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rung of opportunity. The internship provides a real flavor of the industry to them.
Interns can excavate on big ideas and explore an emerging technology. During the internship programme, they get to work with industry experts and apply their theoretical knowledge to real industry problems. Internships are the quality of projects coupled with great learning opportunities and amazing work culture.
The best part of the projects at internship is that it is completely live, tangible and directly related to real scenarios that the organization is facing. As a student, working on something so real is a big learning experience. That is a huge takeaway for an intern to obtain a better placement opportunity.
Department of Computer Science and Engineering is accentuating the Internship programme for the students. Students are provoked to utilize the time strategically and productively. They are also motivated to build skills in order to improve their candidacy. We are nurturing them in accordance to put forth their relentless efforts for the internship programmes.
Department of CSE offered an International Internship programme to Ms.S.R.Raghavi, the student of final year, at University of Texas at Dallas for one month. In this way, Sona enhances the educational experience of the students by preparing them for the global workforce,
@S.R.Raghavi wrote the glimpse of her experience
It is my privilege to share my experience at University of Texas at Dallas for 30 days in June 2016. The said 4 week Programme was conducted as internship on BIG DATA AND MACHINE LEARNING. After successfully passing through the screening process, the green signal came. I thank the chairman and the Management for providing this great opportunity to me, as the sole representative of Sona College, Salem, and the first time in the history of our college. It is a giant leap for me.
I will be failing in my duty if I do not thank Dr.M.Usha (Principal), Dr.B.Sathiyabhama (HOD), Mrs. S. Lavanya, Class Counselor, Mr. Jayaprakash (AP/IT) , and the faculty members of our CSE Dept, and all others from the bottom of my heart for their guidance ,support and encouragement. I thank my parents, friends and all the well wishers for making it come true.
I personally thank Mr. Jey Veersamy (Professor @UTD) for his care, support and all his fatherly affection.
As I was the only student from Sona to do the internship at a foreign university, I had to experience things on my own, right from this to all required arrangements @ USA DURING MY SEMESSTER EXAMINATIONS.
We were accommodated in DORM with 5-star facilities. Totally there were 10 students in all.
(Students from other universities- 7 boys and 2 girls). Initially we had friendly campus tours and healthy interaction with the faculties and in charge members. In the first week we were put up with the high school kids from USA and we together had visit to all the labs. We went to several labs including PHD where we even experienced virtual reality (game) and were allowed to program a robot to write in robotics lab. We also got to know the current trends and needs for the society in which they are working on. One of the most wanted need they work on is the detection of cancer cell in the early stage using RGB technology.
About my training, we were trained by two tutors and I also did a project on pharmaceutical analysis in the last week of internship
Almost every evening we set out to explore Dallas. Its culture, food and the dazzling city.
We had local tours and there are few important things to be mentioned
We left on our own .Sir took us passes for the whole day. We travelled by train which gave us new views about the culture at its each stop. We also visited underground aquarium there in downtown.
