Internship Guidelines


Internship is a vehicle for introducing students to real-life situations, which cannot be simulated in the classroom. Therefore, internship assignments must necessarily be those of direct interest to the host organization. Students are encouraged to take up time bound, multi-disciplinary and goal-oriented assignments involving team work. Solutions to various problems confronted in the assignment might be open-ended, involving an element of analytical thinking, processing and decision-making in the face of insufficient data, parameters and uncertain situations.

Attendance and Conduct

1. During Internship, the students are placed as role ambassadors of KRM. The Institute expects students to maintain professional and social imprints of high standards in the organization.

2. The Institute expects the students to adhere to the rules and regulations of the place of work during the Internship. It is important to be regular, punctual and well mannered at work. During the period of Internship, the student shall be subject to the timings and leave rules of the organization.

3. 100% attendance during Internship is mandatory. However, if for any genuine reason a student is not in a position to report to the organization on any day, he/she should obtain permission for leave of absence from Company Guide, as per the rules and regulations of the organization and also inform the Faculty Guide.

4. Any unprofessional behaviour, misconduct, indiscipline at work and unsatisfactory performance will lead to cancellation of Internship and expulsion from the respective academic programme. Consequently, students will not be permitted to register in Semester III, resulting in the loss of at least one academic year, besides, any other form of academic action, KRM might deem fit to take.

5. The student will indemnify, defend and hold harmless from and against any and all loss damage, liability and expenses arising out of any third party claim, actions or proceedings by him or by any agents, during the period of Internship programme.

Faculty Guide and Company Guide

1. Every student is assigned a Faculty Guide by KRM Institute at the beginning of the Internship. The role of the Faculty Guide is to enable the student to undertake a meaningful project, provide the necessary academic guidance, and to facilitate evaluation, with the help of the company executives.

2. The Faculty Guide would be involved at all stages of the Internship, beginning from the ‘definition of the work content’ to the project completion.

3. Every student works under the counsel of a Company Guide, who supervises and evaluates the performance of the student at every stage and gives the feedback to Faculty Guide.

4. It is the responsibility of the students to utilize the knowledge and experience of the Company Guide to complete the Internship.

5. It is therefore necessary that the students interact with the Faculty Guide and Company Guide regularly to update him about the progress and seeking guidance.

6. The student should send weekly report to the faculty guide on the progress made. They should maintain a project diary and get it signed by the company or the faculty guide regularly.

7. The responsibility of contacting and interacting with the Faculty Guide vests solely with the students. During these interactions, the student would be informed about his/her performance, progress in the project, his/her strengths and weaknesses, as observed through various evaluation components and also ways for improvement. However, the student also has the responsibility to seek clarification regularly from the respective faculty on these aspects.

Important Points

1. Before beginning the assignment, ascertain if any of the seniors/colleagues had earlier undergone Internship at the same organization. If yes, do collect the report submitted by those interns and study them carefully.

2. Apart from providing an exposure to real work situations, the Internship is also an opportunity of learning the art of information/ data identification, classification, acquisition, processing and presentation, so learn these skills.

3. The project undertaken could be of a significant importance to the host organization - in terms of their objective of “Technical Documentation” aiming at updation or modernization of information systems. Therefore, proper care should be taken while documenting the project. The Faculty Guide may be consulted for any problems faced during the process.

4. Good behaviour and mannerisms would help in nurturing a long-term relationship with the organization, which could even translate into a placement opportunity.

5. Students are advised to strictly adhere to the deadlines of submission of reports and making presentations. Non-submission of reports by the due date may lead to non-evaluation of the student for the particular component.

6. Students are advised to submit the project report to the host organization and to the Faculty Guide. This practice assures the host organization on maintaining the status of its confidential data.

7. In case a student faces any problem in the organization, he/she is advised to report the matter to the Faculty guide in the Institute.

8. The project may also be submitted to the University or AIMA for completing the requirement but it should be prepared in accordance with their guidelines.

9. The evaluation of the Internship will be as per the guidelines to be issued before commencement of the programme. The students will also complete any other assignment that may be required by the Institute. The weightage of various components of evaluation for project could be different for University/ AIMA and the students should refer to respective guidelines.
