The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) funded online certification courses provider National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with country’s leading internship and training platform Internshala.
Internships will be provided to college students to help them become apt with industry-relevant skills from varied programmes available on the platform. Internshala will also organise online workshops for students to prepare for internships. In addition, the colleges will be able to track their students’ internships performance via Internshala.
NPTEL was formed by the MHRD in 2003 by bringing seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) and the Indian Institute of Science (IIS) to provide more than 740 courses across diverse subjects. Additional 250 courses are proposed to be offered this year.
Internshala has also signed MoUs with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC), ICT Academy of Kerala, and other education institutes across the nation providing internships to students for free of cost in more than 4.5 lakh programmes available on the platform.
