NUST foreign internship programme concludes


The NUST Internship Programme for International Students (NIPIS ’19) concluded here on Friday at the university’s main campus.
The total 51 foreign interns from 26 countries attended the internship at NUST, including those from International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE), and Association for the International Exchange of Students in Economics & Commerce (AIESEC), said a press release. These students hail from Austria, China, Egypt, France, Poland, Turkey and 20 other countries. Students from universities of many countries avail internships on reciprocal basis every year under IAESTE and AIESEC. The aim of those internship programmes was to provide a high-quality experience across many domains to international students, by not only reinforcing their academic and professional learning, but also giving them a taste of our culture, values and life at NUST.
The interns were given internships at NUST’s constituent Schools and Colleges in the fields of Accounting, Architecture and Design, Business Administration, Computer Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Environment & Sustainability, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Mathematics, Biotechnology, Psychology, Physics, Chemistry, Transportation and Geographical Information System. During their stay at NUST, these students visited notable industries like ICI Pakistan (Khewra) and Kohinoor Textile Mills (Rawalpindi).—APP
