Students’ Feedback:

“An enlightening experience that can’t be found anywhere else. The internship exceeded my expectations in all ways. The expertise of the mentors and the facilities available were very impressive. It was a perfect mix of both theoretical and practical knowle dge and was of huge help in bridging the gap between these two. The three days in Kancheepuram offered us the best opportunity to receive hands on experience. The knowledge I’ve gained there is definitely something I will carry with me for a long time” – Ilavenil R. (2021 B. Tech. Joining Batch)

“Speaking about our internship in LNT from July 24th to August 4th it was far better than we expected. We thought it would be just an explanation of how the industry works but we were surprised to get a hands on session on every work in site plus they made the internship a fruit full one by providing us a specialist in e ach field in every part of the tour and made sure every arisen doubt from us were cleared on and at the moment” – Shaktheeswaran R. (2021 B. Tech. Joining Batch)

“It was a great honor to be part of the internship. They had explained briefly about what all the problems that we face on site are and how to overcome them ..” – Sri Sai Venkat Venkayla (2021 B. Tech. Joining Batch)

“We were able to learn how things were done in real life and got a hands on experience on various fields of Civil Engineering. We got to learn about the problems faced during the construction process . The internship at L&T has given an opportunity to apply the lectures of classroom in real field work ..” – Rajagopal S. (2020 B. Tech. Joining Batch)

“The summer internship at L & T was super inf ormative and packed with hands on experience on the differen t softw ares and technologies. technologies.” Pramarsha B. S. (2020 B. Tech. Joining Batch)
