IITK Students-Industry Engagement Program

Launched on 22 June 2019, the program titled ‘IITK Students tackling Real-World Problems – ReWoP’ is meant for and designed to harness the potential of the IIT Kanpur student and researcher community to address industry challenges while providing them opportunities to understand real-world issues and translate their learning to practice. It augments the existing curriculum imparted by IITK through industry-facing projects. The program is open throughout the year, in which a student/researcher can work with the industry through part-time employment or as interns during summer and winter vacations. It is an opportunity for students/researchers to build upon their professional skills including, problem-solving, communication (written and verbal) skills, teamwork, and project management. The program offers them space and scope to conceptualize and implement creative and out-of-the-box solutions for the industry. On the other hand, this program provides the industry with fresh ideas, ingenious solutions, and a talent pipeline for the future.
