India produces ~1000, 000 engineering graduates every year and most of these graduates are required to do a final year project (especially in case of M.Tech / M.E students). How many of these 1Mn projects are bought, copied and produced in the nearest Xerox shop, is anyone’s guess. Even if 1% of these projects could lead to innovation and a meaningful outcome, the day would not be far ahead when we’d hear of facebook and google like ventures taking shapes in dorms of Indian universities. This internship with Vinfinet is a golden opportunity for final year M.Tech students to get hand on experience of working in Industry while learning on the job – after all final year projects could be fun too! The last date to apply is 30th November 2011 – hurry!
Please apply only if you can work full time with the company for a minimum duration of 3 months.
Update: – The applications are now closed for this internship. Thanks everyone for their interest and wish you all the best!
