This product offers students internship opportunities round the year, even during the pandemic, while providing companies with a structured digital framework that is compliant with AICTE guidelines.

Academic guides can track each student’s progress for award of academic credits. It includes a feature to conduct exit tests and integrate the viva voce score as well, according to a company statement.

“As part of the launch, more than 100 internship projects have been curated under a large number of domains for students to explore,” said the statement.
