Aniket Singh Intern Abroad Program connects Southampton with high-performing Indian students
Apple engineer Aniket Singh is offering Indian students the chance to follow in his footsteps in the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) through a new international internship program at the University of Southampton.
The chip design expert in Cupertino, California, has invested in a program that will fund three-month internships in ECS for promising students from Indian universities.
Aniket interned with ECS during his own studies at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Madras, India, and has authored a series of books on domestic and international study themed ‘Intern Abroad This Summer’.
Students selected in the new program will join ECS in summer 2019 and gain first-hand experience of the School’s high quality academic research.
During his own internship Aniket worked with Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi, a renowned expert in computer engineering who is now Dean of Southampton’s Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
“I would like to share my sincerest thanks for the establishment of the Aniket Singh Intern Abroad Program,” Bashir says. “This opportunity will nurture talent, support greater cross-cultural awareness and help to facilitate and encourage the potential of talented Indian students.”
The new ECS internships expand Aniket’s international program, which already links Indian students in engineering, management, sciences and humanities subjects with top colleges in England, India, Singapore and Switzerland.
Aniket holds a BTech degree in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering from the IIT and a Master’s degree in Wireless Systems from the Politechnico di Torino in Italy. He interned at the University of Southampton and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, during his studies.
He recounts the transformative effect of these international placements in Intern Abroad This Summer, which was published in 2017.
