What is an Industrial Training? 

An internship is a work experience in an on- or off-campus setting for which a student receives academic credit.  At the end of the Industrial Training Programme, students should be able to improve their knowledge and skills relevant to their areas of specialisation and at the same time able to relate, apply and adapt relevant knowledge, concepts and theories within an industrial organisation, practice and ethics.
