The students of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) are protesting for a change in the university’s rules regarding internship. The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has made it mandatory for students to do an internship as part of their engineering degree. VTU allows for one month to this end. However, most industry internships are for a minimum period of three months.
VTU wants internship in installments - But students say no companies allow students to work on and off for 90 days when getting an internship itself is tough.
Without the requisite time, many have resorted to shady shops that provide fake internship experience certificates. This has created the market for easy alternatives. They pay between Rs 8,000 and Rs 10,000. These programmes run for four weeks, which is not enough to actually learn something well and implement it.
WE WANT VTU TO IMPLEMENT NEW RULES FOR ALL BATCHES WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, AND NOT WAIT FOR 2018 INCOMING BATCH. OTHERWISE WHAT WILL CURRENT STUDENTS DO?
WE URGE NEW STUDENTS WHO PLAN TO JOIN VTU FROM AUG 2018 TO PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION AND LOOK FOR OTHER UNIVERSITY ALTERNATIVES.
