Some of the interesting elements of the teaching methodology at Welingkar include the following:

Projects and Internships

Summer projects form a part of the programs academic curriculum. They are meant to  impart practical training to students, on industry related topics.  Several renowned companies visit us every year, in search of bright students who can apply their classroom learnings to meet organizational challenges. These take the form of Summer Projects and other forms of internships, which benefit students and companies, alike.

This year a large number of students from Welingkar went on to do their internships abroad in Germany, Japan, Dubai, Kenya, Ghana, Sweden and Tanzania. 

Welingkar also hosts 'Guruvandana' which is the thanksgiving event for summer project guides. At this event, students' summer projects are discussed and their mentors and guides from the various companies are thanked for their role in grooming the students through projects in particular, and their career, at large. This also helps develop a rapport between different people across functions in organizations with faculty and students at Welingkar, beyond the Summer Training.
Apart from the Summer Project, students engage in:

Curricular projects: Most subjects have a project component in the evaluation, making it almost essential for students to learn and experience application and execution orientation.

Industry projects: On several occasions we receive requests from organizations for students to undertake work in a live activity or research. Such projects are short and time bound and goes a long way in building the resume of students.

Final Year Project: Students complete a project in the area of specialization they have chosen as part of the final Semester work. The project is equivalent to a full credit course and carries weightage in the overall assessment of the student.
