IIT Madras-EU project helps students to work in industry and get pre-placement
This project would also provide exposure to the students to the real-time developments and the technological needs of the industry.
The cooperation of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras with an initiative of European Union has generated opportunities for students to work in corporates prior to graduation. This would also help them gain experience and training that can lead to pre-placement opportunities. This project would also provide exposure to the students to the real-time developments and the technological needs of the industry.
The TEEDE (Towards Excellence in Engineering Curricula for Dual Education) initiative, an innovative thought in Technical Education for Developing Countries called ‘Dual Education’, is a syndicate of eminent Universities in Europe and Asia which has been funded by European Union and Erasmus +. The initiative unites the classroom learning with industrial experiences. Contrary to internships, which are short-term, TEEDE envisions students spending substantial amount of time active in corporates as full-time workers, rather than interns, as part of their curriculum.
