Internship Analysis 2020-21

The exciting journey of learning and tinkering is never complete without proper work experience. Internships are such an opportunity that give your hard-earned degrees a final touch. They make our learning complete and consistent with professional and industrial exposure.

One of the advantages of such a learning model is that it is an effective alternative to gain the required experience without committing yourself to full time. With almost 1500 students competing through the structured procedure of CDC Internships, very few are able to achieve this experience in light of intense competition.

As it is said that Information and awareness is the greatest tool for success, we at Awaaz, IIT Kharagpur understand the student need. Hence, we present an analysis of the internships offered through CDC in the Academic Year 2020-21.

A total of 609 offers were made by 106 companies through the CDC. Honeywell topped the most recruitments chart with 30 offers, followed by AppViewX (25), Microsoft (24), Mastercard (23) and Samsung R&D (18). Tech giants including Google (13), Adobe (8), Qualcomm (7) and Nvidia (3) also produced a generous number of offers.
