This summer, COSE’s Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering Department has sent two SCSU students, Paige Ehalt and Pratiksh Patel, to India. The students are completing an internship at JK Cement Company. The internships were arranged through the JKLU-SCSU Internship Exchange program, a partnership between SCSU and a university in India. The partnership creates internship abroad opportunities for students from both institutions. We are tracking the students’ progress here on the COSE International Programs blog. Check back periodically to hear more about their experiences abroad.
Prat’s Experience in India, Journal Entry 4:
This week is my last here at the cement plant. The entire trip has been a great experience. We visited so many cool places in the State of Rajasthan.
As far as the learning experience goes, the internship has also been great from start to finish. This internship was definitely worth my time and my money; words cannot describe how happy I feel. Now that it is ending, I am very content. The internship and my time in India was invaluable for me. It really bridged the link between my studies and a career in industry.
