SRM Institute of Science and Technology recently played host to 4 young undergraduate students- Tinusha, Harsheni, Deepiga and Dharshienie, from Asian Institute of Medical, Science and Technology (AIMST) in Malaysia, for a 3-month internship in biotechnology.
Excited about their time at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), the students have shared some perspectives on their experiences:
“Hello! We are students from Malaysia, from the department of Biotechnology of Faculty of Applied Sciences at AIMST, at the humongous green campus located in the heart of the ancient city, Kadaram, now known as Kedah. We have come back to Malaysia with fond memories, and feel privileged to have completed our internship at a top ranking university in India.
We arrived at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University), Chennai campus to start with our internship on July 24th. Upon landing, we were awestruck by the magnificent infrastructure of the university. The SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) stretches over 250 acres with a variety of facilities. As we were mostly involved in laboratory work, we have to be honest that their laboratories were like state-of-the-art labs. We also had a satisfying stay as the hostels had premium facilities, dining options, gym and more. The staff were welcoming, attentive and closely monitored our progress, giving us the chance to experience a worthy internship programme.
This was an experience like never before. We had a chance to study and learn in a new environment and know the differences between cultures, which is necessary for the time of globalization. As a student undergoing internship, we had the chance to prove to ourselves that we are capable of coping with different, as well as challenging situations. It was a great opportunity to make life-lasting friendships and travel. Our weekends were occupied with impromptu trips and outing in Chennai and other nearby cities. Some of the breathtaking tourist attraction sites we visited are, Mahabalipuram, Ooty, Marina Beach and the Golden Temple of Vellore.
In a nutshell, we had the time of our lives visiting our beautiful motherland. This internship program had made us more independent, improved our personalities and definitely increased our confidence in our field of study. Frankly speaking, the 12 weeks I spent at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) would be one of the most unforgettable days of my life.
To more life-changing experiences! Thank you SRM Institute of Science and Technology !”
