Tvm: Singapore Management students are all set to embark on an internship programme in Technopark. The initiative is being kick-started through a pilot project by GTech, the Group of Technopark Companies, in partnership with Singapore Management University.
This is part of GTech’s agenda to establish Global linkages for the Kerala IT Industry. The pilot project is being organised at InApp Information Technologies from the first week of May is for 2 month duration. The internship students would eventually help Technopark companies in identifying Business and market opportunities in the South East Asian Market. The idea was mooted during GTech’s interaction with Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) held in June 2009.
The objective of the Internship Programme is to provide a framework by which graduate and post-graduate students from diverse academic backgrounds from Singapore may be assigned to member companies where their educational experience can be enhanced through practical work assignments and expose them to the work of the Kerala IT Industry.
In a release, GTech said that such an initiative would reinforce the strategic relations between Kerala and the city-state of Singapore. This is in tune with GTech’s policy of developing strategic and in-depth engagements with the Government and Business establishments in Singapore and other South East Asian Countries. GTech strongly feels that these interns from different nationalities covering the ASEAN countries would act as brand ambassadors for the state IT Industry in furthering the Industry’s business and strategic interests.
