A Chennai engineering college has entered into a partnership with the Computer Science Corporation (CSC) to work on projects specified by the industry in return for internships and mentoring from the industry. The Alpha College of Engineering has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with CSC to start the Collaborative Open Innovation Network. Through the COIN initiative CSC will assign projects to select students, guide them and monitor the progress made by the students continuously according to a timeline set by them.
Students selected through the program shall have regular interaction with CSC mentors. In addition to getting industry exposure and mentors from the industry, the students also get a certificate indicating the project they have worked on and their performance from CSC. The MoU was signed by CSC managing director Brian Manning, and principal of Alpha College of Engineering S Selvan. Grace George, chairperson of Alpha Group of Institutions, said, "Students do not often get an opportunity to have persons with 10 to 15 years of industry experience at the national and global levels as technical mentors. Alpha works intensively with companies and international universities to facilitate such opportunities. The COIN initiative will help students have a better understanding of industry culture and expectations when undergoing their course."
