The Indian Institute of Technology Madras is known both nationally and internationally for excellence in technical education, basic and applied research, innovation, entrepreneurship and industrial consultancy. 

IIT Madras says the institute has registered a 32 per cent increase in internship offers received on the first day of campus internship drive for students of the 2022-23 batch. The first day of the internship drive was conducted in two sessions on 6th and 13th August 2022. The internship drive was conducted in hybrid mode with both in-person and online interviews.

The Highlights of Day One Sessions of Internship Drive include:

  • 15 International internship offers were received from seven companies.
  • 48 percent increase in the number of students who secured an internship.
  • 28 percent increase in number of companies that visited IIT Madras for Internship.

Prof P Murugavel, Advisor (Internship), IIT Madras, said: “A professional internship is an integral part of students’ careers where they get an opportunity to apply and fine-tune the skills they have learned. With companies shifting to an internship-based hiring model, it is also important for students to secure Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) through the internship program.”

“This year, the internship interviews are being conducted in a hybrid mode as opposed to the fully virtual process last year. I am happy to inform that the Day 1 of the interviews was successfully conducted with a record number of offers made by visiting companies,” he added.

The international internship offers came for profiles in the US, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, and The Netherlands. Of the total 37 companies that participated in Day One sessions of the Internship Drive, 13 companies conducted the interviews in physical mode on campus while another 24 conducted interviews completely online. Students could also attend the process remotely with one student attending from Canada.
