[ads1]Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) is considering to make internships for engineering students mandatory from next academic year.
As the university is revamping the syllabi of first and second semesters in 2014, is planning to consider the internships as a part of the curriculum.
According to Vice-Chancellor, the university is planning to assign marks to the internships by considering the students from rural areas who do not have any industries or companies in their areas.
From next academic year Post Graduate students may have to do the internships compulsorily said the Vice-Chancellor.
The university is taking this initiative by considering the surveys which declared that many of the graduated students are Unemployable and does not know how industries work.
