With over 75 students of University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET) bagging 'paid summer trainings' this season, with the highest stipend among them being Rs 1.4 lakh per month and the second highest being Rs 54,000 per month, Panjab University's engineers are a sought after lot this season in the industry.
Additionally, two students from UIET are all set to receive training with lucrative stipends in the world's most reputed research institutes. Anmol Razdan and Sankalp Sardana, two third year students of computer science engineering have been selected for summer internship starting this June by CERN, Geneva, Switzerland and Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching, near Munich, Germany respectively. Besides, several others have bagged stipends ranging between Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,000 per month in reputed Indian companies. "There were 800 applications from India itself and out of all these I got selected by CERN. It is a proud moment for our college and parents," says Anmol, who is doing his integrated course of BE (CSE) and MBA at PU. "The fact that the organization hosts 10,000 visiting scientists and engineers and is the birthplace of the World Wide Web, it is a great privilege to visit it," he adds. CERN, a European Organization for nuclear research, set up in 1954, operates the world's largest particle physics laboratory, located in the suburbs of Geneva. I am going to do collaborative research work on Bayesian analysis in Germany. I will be assisting 61 scientists in making a tool kit which will make computation of bays theorem easy," said Sankalp. His guide in the research project would be Allen Caldwell, director of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, Germany. Renu Vig, director, UIET said that it was a proud moment for the institute since the two students were going to work in world-class computer-labs for not just an internship but for research work. Quick Facts: Over 75 students have bagged paid summer trainings. 30 of them have been offered stipends ranging between Rs 90,000 to Rs 1.2 lakh for six month training period. The highest monthly stipend is Rs 1.4 lakh and the second highest is Rs 54,000.
