National Level Internship Program (NLIP)

The current pandemic is biggest crisis being faced by our generation. It has also impacted social, cultural and economic system and thinking of our society. One of the most important and essential activity that is education has been affected very badly. Most of the schools and colleges are closed from last 14 months and complete education has been shifted to online mode of delivery which could not address the need of professional courses. Before COVID 19 situation, no one could appreciate that a learner can get the credit of learning in swimming in sitting the room without going to the river and pond. The lab requirements and field exposure are the foundation of the professional courses. In this context, Construction Industry Development Council (Established by the Planning Commission, Government of India) which pioneered the training programs in the Construction Industry and bridged the gap between Industry and Academia is offering a national level internship program for engineering students.

CIDC has come up with a plan to organise learning courses for engineering students, young faculties and professionals on the most needed but not properly covered areas and topics. These courses will contain the distance learning modules and then industry-oriented training depending on the situation of COVID 19. CIDC will prefer only those courses which have been asked by the Industry. The Industry experts will join in the course delivery and Industry oriented training.

Association with AICTE:

The All India Council of Technical Education, New Delhi has issued a directive on 15.07.2021 (copy is attached herewith for quick reference) to all AICTE approved Universities/ Colleges/ Institutions to meet their internship obligations in line with the Internship Policy of AICTE in association with CIDC.

Industry Interaction Model:

CIDC has identified the niche areas where students are required to gain proper knowledge and develop their abilities to work effectively. As example, we may consider several courses for Civil Engineering students, faculties and professionals. Similarly, the demanding courses have been prepared for other branches. During the course the essential topics like quality assurance, skill assessment, billing, site accountancy etc. will also be taught.

The experts from Industry will be actively involved in all the stages of the courses. The teaching shall be done by industry experts

CIDC also proposes that the students shall be evaluated jointly by the CIDC and Institute/ University to gauge their learning on each topic and collaborative Institute/ University may consider awarding suitable credit points for each session. This will not only ensure serious participation but also form part of fulfilling the formal course requirements.

The series of such interactive courses would provide great learning opportunity and also opportunity to network with senior industry experts that may be very helpful in searching a better placement.

The students of all branches are eligible.


1. GIS and Remote Sensing,
2. Modern Concrete Technology,
3. Health Audit and Retrofitting of Structures,
4. Arbitration and Contract Interpretation
5. Introduction to Trenchless Technology,
6. Quantity Surveying & Billing,
7. Project Management & Project Planning,
8. Industry Oriented Foundation Course for Electrical Engineer,
9. Industry Oriented Foundation Course for Mechanical Engineer,
10. Security Audit of IT Infrastructures,

Course Allotment:

The course will be finalised by the Committee based on the interest and previous knowledge and skill of the student and the availability of seats.
