        The concept of work experience, internships or cooperative education is not a 20th-century development, as many believe.The concept of learning by doing goes back to the guild system in Europe. The idea of combining work and education in America was formally initiated in 1906 by Herman Schneider at the University of Cincinnati where it was referred to as cooperative education. Professor Schneider joined the University of Cincinnati in 1903 and began immediately to solicit the interest of the faculty and industrial leaders in the merits of cooperative education.

         Schneider was convinced of the efficacy of this concept after studying case records of Lehigh University graduates, indicating that those who showed marked engineering ability had worked while attending college.
        By 1906, he had convinced a reluctant faculty at the University of Cincinnati and enthusiastic industrial leaders of his plan. He initiated an engineering cooperative program on a weekly basis, whereby half the students were in class for a week while the other half was on the job. The students exchanged positions the next week, continuing this pattern through their study. By 1920, 780 engineering students were working in 135 different firms. By 1919, the cooperative plan was adopted by the College of Business at the University. From its early beginning to today, cooperative education has become an important program in American higher education.
        At Minnesota State University, Mankato, the College of Business initiated an internship program in 1970. Positions for students
 have been in some of the nation's largest corporations and many of Minnesota's thriving organizations as well as small, entrepreneurial organizations.
        The following list of program objectives has been extensively reported in literature discussing internship programs. The College of Business subscribes to the following objectives but does not expect each student to achieve every objective. Many of the program objectives will only be important to a few students, but each student should achieve a substantial portion of those listed

  • Real World Experience!

        Internships provide real world experience to those looking to explore or gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field.A student or a recent graduate undergoing supervised practical training is called as Internship.Internships are relatively short term in nature with the primary focus on getting some on the job training and taking what’s learned in the classroom and applying it to the real world.                                                 Read More.....
  • Helpful Tips for student to secure jobs

        As the developers, designers and Architects are gainers the real time solutions ,then Internship will help the student to grab/receive all the new ideas relevant current problems.

  • Industry Interaction is the need of the hour!

           The advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to the outside world produced a stiff competition among industries. To fill the void of efficient industrial work force, it has become essential that engineering students are exposed to newer technologies and methodologies. This objective can only be achieved by bridging the gap between the industries and academic institutions.
