IIT Bombay BTech and dual-degree programme students will not be able to take up foreign internships from the academic year beginning 2008-09.
The institute has decided to make it mandatory for students to enroll with an Indian company or institution for an internship for the course credits.
The BTech in IIT-Mumbai is a four-year course, a dual-degree programme of five years has an eight-week internship mandatory at the end of the third and fourth year of the course.
BTech students who wish to apply for foreign internship after the second year will be allowed to do so. Domestic internships in the third year will still be mandatory.
Over 60 per cent of these students go for foreign internships to pursue their PhD studies and take up research-related jobs at universities or to work with foreign companies.
While the universities include Georgia Tech, McGill, Ohio State, Southern California and Columbia, among others, labs/organisations include Corus Steel (UK), Suzuki Motors, Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Temasek Life Sciences, Microsoft and DaimlerChrysler.
