Internship Program for Final Year Students

Department of Civil Engineering has organized an internship program for final year students. The main objective of this program is to upgrade the knowledge of fresh engineering graduates as per industry requirements and help them to get better job opportunities. The students are exposed to the various site aspects in industry due to which they can be easily absorbed by the companies without much training. Students are made to visit and observe the various sites and the activities going around.

On the first day students visited construction sites in and around Mangalore where they observed the excavation and foundation works.
