After my Third Year in Mechanical Engineering, I aimed to pursue an internship that would help me gain insight into the work culture of a corporate organization. On getting an internship through the recruitment for L&T Immersion Program (LIP), I received the opportunity to explore a tiny portion of L&T’s vast array of operations, something that helps put so many practical aspects of professional life into perspective.
After clearing the aptitude test, and performing fairly well in the GD and interview process, some quite prosaic days passed by. Finally, when my name appeared among the selected candidates, it was a joyous moment for sure.
L&T undoubtedly deserves a whole lot of commendation for giving us a very promising head start into the internship. Forty-four interns from all walks of life were brought together at the campus, where all of us underwent a two-day induction training process. The activities ranged from team-building exercises, personality development sessions to an informal social.
My project at L&T EAIC was related to building an industrial asset intelligence platform that would holistically track the factory production processes remotely and offer relevant insights into performance. While the array of connected VMCs, Moulding Machines etc. functioned hundreds of miles away, IIOT technology enabled real-time monitoring and analysis. After being introduced to the proof of concept by the mentors I was assigned, the first week flew by swiftly in developing an understanding of the parameters on which machine performance and subsequent reports relied.
For the next three weeks, I was periodically allotted assignments that were localized to sections of the platform. The task at hand primarily catered to understanding the recorded machine performance and tracing causes of erroneous data. One significant takeaway from this seldom tedious process was that: effectively presenting what you have worked on is instrumental to the success of your project.
Next, I was at the bustling manufacturing plant in Vadodara, to witness a completely different area of the work. The assignment was to evaluate the manufacturing operations and plan out the improvements that the platform required to reach the implementation stage. My focus was on the Thermoplastic Injection Moulding Machines that were responsible for creating complex components for subsequent assembly. The support offered by the in-plant managers helped me to learn better and expedite my investigations.
By the time the final stages of the internship closed in, I could see how I had assimilated from my experiences, all thanks to the guidance, support, and feedback from my superiors. I gained thorough technical knowledge and learned to interact and present my ideas better via discussions, meetings, and presentations in a formal environment. As a result, the final presentation before the end of my tenure went very smoothly.
To put it simply, it’s your connection with your workplace and the people that elevates your motivation and brings out the best in you. This nascent but fruitful experience of being in a corporate space as well as on the shop floor, was thoroughly enjoyable and one of a kind.
