Dassault Systèmes has associated with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar’s Agriculture and Water Technology Development Hub (AWaDH) to support the university’s Online Internship Carnival – an eight-week online internship programme for design and engineering students.
During the eight weeks of internship, the interns will receive extensive training on design thinking, material selection, advanced CAD (Computer-Aided Design) practices, CFD (Computation Fluid Dynamics) and FEA (Finite Element Analysis), advanced topics in systems-level modeling, life cycle analysis, project management, patent search, manufacturing simulations and techno-economic analysis. They will get to participate in brainstorming sessions, patent search, and literature review. Furthermore, they will also learn about the preparation of patent documents.
Starting from May 24, the virtual internship will nurture 100 individuals across 20 teams. The winning teams from this program, will be offered paid internships for six months at IIT Ropar which they can do as per their academic schedule and convenience. They will also be offered travel and stay at IIT Ropar to explore the possibilities of future collaboration with the mentor faculty members. In addition to this, the top five out of 10 winning teams would be supported with a seed grant for running a start-up.
Students in the second/third/fourth year of engineering undergraduate or equivalent program from any engineering institute/college/university, with specialization in streams including aerospace, computer science and engineering, chemical, mechanical, production, metallurgy, materials, civil engineering, and more, are eligible for participation. AWaDH will be constituting interdisciplinary teams of interns and assign them to work on special projects.
“IIT Ropar is committed to nurture academic and scientific excellence among our students to innovate and solve real world problems across different sectors. At AWaDH, we encourage and enable extensive interdisciplinary reasearch in the domains of Agriculture and Water. The Online Internship Carnival is part of this endeavour, and we are excited to associate with Dassault Systemes for this program” said Prof. Rajeev Ahuja, Director, IIT Ropar. “This association will not only provide the interns with the opportunity to use 3D design and engineering technology but also crucial learnings about the industry standards and best practices. ”
