GIPEDI - Global Internship Program in Engineering Design and Innovation

The GIPEDI is a Internship Program in the Electrical Sciences for students and professionally qualified engineers. It is a program of the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, with logistic support from the Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer (FITT).

The Program runs throughout the year in four batches of different durations (Jan-May/May-July/July-Dec/Dec-Jan).

It welcomes applications from undergraduate and postgraduate students from recognized academic Institutions.

For professionally qualified Engineers, it offers Returnships for those who to get back to an active career after a break and Gap Internships for those professionals who wish to switch careers / are between two careers*.

Women engineers and meritorious engineering students who need support or have special needs to fulfill professional aspirations are encouraged to apply under its affirmative action initiative.

The GIPEDI Internship is designed differently - it does not just train students to execute projects, it trains them in project planning, requirements analysis, specification generation, design iteration management, team work and ethics, behaviour management, team building, group etiquette and communication skills. Apart from a full set of technology modules, it also uses specially designed training modules in ethics, history through heritage sensitization / heritage walks and lessons from mythology to teach culturally-conscious and effective engineering practices.

* The Gap Internship is also appropriate for fresh graduates / post-graduates "on the bench" who are waiting to join a job or waiting to get admission to another program after completing one program.
