The students of engineering colleges / universities are required to do summer training in industry or research institute as a pre-requisite for completion of their B.E./ B Tech, M. Tech/ M.Sc degree for 8 to 10 weeks duration. Projects of interest to CSIR-IIP are assigned to the students so that they are exposed to the latest technological developments while working on real life research projects. CSIR-IIP too get benefits with additional manpower support for faster completion of project.
Since institute receives a very large number of requests from Universities, Colleges to train their students/wards from different disciplines/areas.
