    Hi! I am a student of Electrical Engineering, 2nd year. I am curious to know if the work involved in this internship is related to core Electrical/Electronics engineering? Or is it a non-core internship because is seems the work is more related to management?

      you are right. This is not a Core internship per say. It requires someone who understands the technology and can manage a project – so a mixed bag.

      Thanks

      I would advise against it – you need to have some core subject knowledge base built for you to do well in the internship. There are other non-technical internships posted on the blog though in case you are interested.

      Thanks
