Level 3 undergraduates are given 6 months of fulltime, internal training in the industry. This provides the students with industrial exposure under the guidance of practicing engineers. It is the close links the department maintains with the industry and the alumnae that make this annual placement of 100 undergraduates a smooth task.
Number of places offered by each organization, its choice of the students as well as the students' preferences govern the trainee placement. Alphabetically listed below are the organizations in which our students were placed as trainees for 2007.
