NASSCOM has identified that engineering students in India need to gain experience to improve their employability. AICTE in its 2018 model curriculum recommends that every student obtain 14-20 credits (equivalent to 320-480 productive hours) of internships in the duration of their 4 year engineering course. Students are encouraged to participate in internship programs in blocks of 6-8 weeks from their 1st year engineering course. However, students and colleges are constrained with capacity at organizations, varying academic schedules and learning skills.
Student Remote Internship Program (SRIP) by Software Engineering Research Center (SERC), IIIT Hyderabad addresses mentioned constraints by providing opportunities to students to work on live open source projects. SRIP is designed to bridge the gap existing between academic learning and the application of that learning in industry settings. Students would be mentored to use industry relevant technologies while contributing to open source repositories. Apart from offering the flexibility to work any time and anywhere, SRIP is also expected to improve self-confidence and problem solving
skills in students making them industry
Software applications are emerging from properitary and monolithic architecture to open source API based architecture. Open source applications have contributions from developers across the world and round the clock on GitHub, GitLab and other repositories. You may work on some of these during internship
- Programming Languages - Python, Java and Others
- Database - MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, etc.
- Operating System - Ubuntu and other Linux platforms
- Methodologies - Product Quality Metrics, Waterfall, Agile and DevOps
SRIP's students will collaborate with mentors and repository owners across the globe that would help them learn working practices leading to better understanding of requirements on employment. Some of the behavioral traits that are expected improve with SRIP are
- Communication Skills
- Working as a Team
- Time Management
- Problem Solving
- Self Confidence and Proactiveness
