Summer Internship
Programme (SIP):Summer Internship Project – 6 to 8 weeks

Internships have a distinct edge over interview-based final recruitment as a method of evaluating potential employees. Deserving candidates often get Pre-Placement Offers, and students at AIM have enjoyed a particularly special relationship with their recruiters in this regard. It is firmly believed by the recruiters that summer interns offer a fresh perspective to projects. They are in a unique position to provide an objective and unbiased point of view about the organization's work process.

After completion of three terms in the first year, the students undertake Summer Internship in industry for gaining hands-on experience. SIP is of eight to nine weeks duration. As a part of SIP, students submit a detailed project report and make a formal presentation to a panel consisting of Faculty and external members from industry/ academics.
