AICTE 2023

Students From Rural to Receive Simulated Training Through AICTE Facilities.

Close to 1,20,000 students received practical instruction in cloud, cybersecurity, and silicon technologies.

To develop a talent pool of experts knowledgeable in semiconductors, cybersecurity, cloud technologies, and network infrastructure, AICTE, and Edu Skills Foundation are providing technical students from small towns and rural areas with possibilities for virtual internships. Many students were given the opportunity to intern with organisations like Microchip, Juniper Networks, and AWS.

AICTE chairman Prof. TG Sitharam recently opened a new cohort, and as many as 1,20,000 students had completed internships. Students in rural colleges who don’t have access to corporate internships would be helped by the skilling scheme.

They receive training in simulated environments thanks to access to advanced technical opportunities, which enables them to intern at multinational corporations (MNCs). After registering on the National Internship Portal, students were chosen, and the AICTE moderators instructed them to work on actual projects in nine partner firms, including Microchip, Juniper Networks, and AWS.

These virtual internships are being offered in 12 different domains, including cloud computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, data analytics, cybersecurity, embedded systems development, data analytics process automation, robotic process automation, process mining, networking security, cloud computing, networking, and robotic process automation development. Most BTech students receive a stipend of between Rs 5000 and Rs 10,000 for their internships.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi envisaged that at least 1 crore students should get internships by 2025. We have already reached 30 lakhs, we plan to involve more companies to expand the internship opportunities.

So far, the focus is on emerging technologies and the superconductor industry,” says Buddha Chandrashekhar, chief coordinating officer, of AICTE. Several electronic companies are operational and many projects are in the pipeline that require a talent pool to work in silicon and semiconductor-based industries, says Chandrashekhar.

“We have given internships to students from rural areas to train and empower them to create VLSI designs, microcontrollers, etc. The new cohort will be trained in cybersecurity, network engineering, AWS Cloud Security, cloud management, and cloud architecture,” he adds.

Training software has been distributed in institutions in rural and remote places to boost internship chances there. The chosen students were given permission to practice following regular lessons and on weekends.

Chandrashekhar explains that these internships are simulation-based: “After completion of training, the students submit their designs to the company they are interning with.” For instance, students can work on VLSI design in real-time while using the software.

Students were trained to make chips used in mobile phones, speakers, digital display boards, and microcontrollers.  Electrical engineering students are being trained by Microchip Technology, a well-known tech company. Once students have experience with microchips, making nanochips becomes simpler for them.

According to Chandrashekhar, AICTE intends to partner with more businesses so that students can pursue their interests in a variety of industries. He also points out that skilled workers are needed to build the necessary network infrastructure for the country’s rollout of 5G operations.

The initiative has created a win-win situation for both the industry and academia, says Anil Sahasrabudhe, former chairman, of AICTE, and the present chairman of, the National Educational Technology Forum (NETF), “This initiative allows industries to benefit from the fresh and innovative technical ideas brought forth by young minds,” he adds.
