Industry Practice

Our global & practice-based learning model makes NU a recognised leader in teaching and learning. One of the core principles of NIIT University (NU), is being an ‘Industry-linked’ institution. The NU philosophy lays emphasis on the participation of industry in every process and function of University as an equal partner.

The Industry Practice (IP) at NU is  a unique programme that our students mandatorily undertake to complete their degree programme. IP is conducted onsite and the organisation provides students with opportunities to gain experience working in interdisciplinary teams. During IP, students are guided by a dedicated faculty mentor and a mentor from the organisation. The faculty mentor oversees & evaluates the progress of the students, coordinates with the industry mentor, and thus facilitates the process. Industries are eager to hire our students as they are young, dedicated and dynamic individuals who are able and equipped to take challenges that come their way.

This industry-oriented approach enables our students to graduate with the skills, knowledge and hands-on experience sought by employers worldwide. What they learn duringt  Industry Practice not only lands them career opportunities – it also equips them with the ability to adapt and grow throughout their careers. At NU IP is a requirement for B.Tech, MBA, M.Tech GIS and M.Tech ET. We are happy to announce the success of the students, all of whom have been placed in organisations and research labs in India, Singapore and USA.
