CPF Internship and Training Program Summer 2018

CPF Internship and Training Program
Summer 2018
Center of Excellence Centres

The idea of CITP-CoE initiative is to provide required exposure to real life problem statements and connecting students with experts in the field of Cyber Security and IT industry.  Nurturing the young generation towards community driven technical research and development and also preparing for their professional lives.

The internship and training program in 2018 summers in CPF Center of Excellence campuses has a been a new experience for the students, faculties and CPF team as well. While the on-campus activities were centered in BIT Meerut campus we had students and faculties participating in different projects from Royal Global University, Guwahati and UPES Dehradun.

The program is designed in such way to provide 360 degree exposure to the students. During the summer vacations CPF and Industry experts camp at one of the Center of Excellences which hosts the program. It runs for 45 days in the campus wherein experts share their experiences, startup entrepreneurs interact with the young generation. The students are encouraged to learn and apply the skills in real life problem statements.

The program has gone beyond the campus boundaries and some of the groups have worked in across campus and build projects of community importance. Some of the projects are now being tested and in a process to become real life solutions for the community.

Some of the key sessions and activities during the program:

Working in a team #ProjectManagement

This activity involves dividing the students in teams based on their area of expertise or the would like to choose from, the teams identified as:

  1. UI Team
  2. Backend Team
  3. Database Team
  4. Code and System Security
  5. Systems
  6. Integration

The teams has been provided a problem statement which was analyzed and designed in the sessions and the students are given assignments to complete the project within a time frame. The idea here is to focus on working in a professional team environment. Each team has chosen a team lead who should be talking to other team leads and keep an eye on the timelines.

The participants of the activity:
