IIT Kharagpur, as an Institute of Eminence, has realized that producing industry competitive and academically strong graduates alone cannot be it’s ultimate objective. It needs to craft students who possess leadership qualities and will eventually become entities who will change the world. For this to happen, it is necessary that the students showcase themselves on world platforms and in-turn gain the much-cherished exposure towards new work-cultures. International experience is crucial for holistic development as it opens our minds to new possibilities and alternate modulus operandi. Therefore, we believe that the experience of living and working abroad will be paramount to this endeavour.
Foreign Training Program provides a unique opportunity to undergraduate students from IIT Kharagpur to conduct research under the supervision of professors of eminent universities abroad. Through this program we have started formalization of the foreign training application procedure and we aim to streamline and increase the efficiency of the foreign training application procedure in IIT Kharagpur. FTP serves to provide students with cross-cultural exposure and opportunities to expand their horizons through research extensive summers.
I had already went through a lot of websites of different universities for blend optics and Electronics but the result was disappointing. At the same time I also submitted my CV in the FTP portal. Everything was arranged by IR Cell and I had to just report to their office for the Interview. IR Cell also introduced me to last year's intern at the same lab: Mr. Vraj Chauhan who guided me well. I am very thankful to IR Cell's FTP for giving such a platform to me as well as the students of IIT KGP to undergo training at the best labs and institutes with tremendous potentialSoumya Shailja
My venture in Foreign Training experience begun when I got to know about the FT Portal of IR cell which gave me the opportunity to explore numerous projects on multiple and multidisciplinary principles.The title of my project was “Nanobeads Manipulation and immobilization using antibody for Parkinson’s disease early diagnosis” and it was really amazing experience. I am highly grateful to the IR cell for making this dream come true. FTP has successfully transformed and inculcated research interests into many young undergraduates here at IITKGP.Neelanjan Akuli
