These organizations have offered internships and final placements to our students. It is a conscious effort on the part of SSE to expand the network of association, so as to reflect synergies between the academic training and research/industry needs.

Placement Cell Activities

The Placement Cell conducts a number of activities to help students prepare for their careers after graduation. Each final year BSc and MSc student attends a career counselling session to help them understand and make choices from the various opportunities available. Students are encouraged to attend follow up counselling sessions to help their decision making process. The Placement Cell arranges workshops on other important aspects of preparing for placements like CV writing, Aptitude Tests, Mock interviews & Group discussions, Grooming and Etiquette, speaking skills & body language, impact of current affairs on business & economy etc.

Internships

All BSc And MSc students are required to complete an internship as a requirement of their coursework. The Placement Cell assists students in applying for internships. The aim of the internship is to widen the student’s perspective and to help them understand the real life implications of the theoretical frameworks learned in class. It gives the students an opportunity to experience and appreciate real world challenges in the areas of research and business.

The Internship selection process starts in the month of December. Selection is typically based on the written tests, student research papers and personal interview.
