Infosys launches a new internship program, Instep NSW, to offer hands-on experience and Asian literacy for university students in New South Wales (NSW), and also give them the opportunity to live, travel and work on cutting-edge technology projects in India.
Based on an award-winning internship program from Infosys, InStep NSW is unique because it is aimed at fostering ideas and building skills that will help expand the economy of New South Wales. Local universities will nominate both student candidates and project topics based on their potential to spur economic growth.
InStep NSW will select three to five students each year to experience one-on-one mentorship from Infosys researchers and managers. Students will work on real-world strategic projects, with topics selected by universities as critical for the NSW economy, such as cloud computing or big data. They will spend 8 to 10 weeks living and working in an Infosys campus in India, during their summer break. As a part of the program, Infosys will sponsor the students’ travel, visas, stipend and housing.
“InStep NSW is designed to give students a ‘money-can’t-buy’ practical experience,” said Jackie Korhonen, Senior Vice President and Country Head for Australia and New Zealand at Infosys. “This program will be invaluable to building the technical, cultural and business competency that our next generation of Australian leaders will need. As an engineering student at the University of Sydney many years ago, I took up the opportunity to live and work overseas for a year. It was one of the best decisions of my life.”
