Makerere University and AIESEC to facilitate 35 software development internships in India

Published

on

Makerere University, through its School of Computing and IT is now in a partnership with AIESEC Uganda that will see 35 young Ugandan students with an IT background receive a one year paid internship program in India. The interns will work in various departments as software developers and software testers.

AIESEC Uganda  is a branch of AIESEC, the world’s largest student run organization which offers an international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential to have a positive impact on society through international networking. Students go to different countries across the globe to work with different organizations and projects in order to get exposed and gain real experience. This internship period ranges from two to twelve months strictly, so as to accord the students a chance to come back to develop their motherlands. By partnering with corporate, non corporate and higher education institutions, there is no doubt AIESEC provides that required experience.

AIESEC was formed in 1948 and has since then enjoyed a great deal of progress and success including producing a big number of CEOs and employers. With special emphasis on AIESEC Uganda, 250 active students have joined the organization through its various programs during its 16 year operation in Uganda. AIESEC Uganda is also present in 7 private and public universities which include; Makerere University, Uganda Christian University, Kampala International University, Kyambogo University, Ndejje University, Mbarara University of Science and Technology and Uganda Martyrs’ University Nkozi.

According to the AIESEC Uganda President Ms Manuela Mueller, most of the leading students have emerged from Makerere University, AIESEC’s biggest partner in Uganda. She also confirmed that 5 students from the computer science class of 2009/2010 Makerere university have participated in this program and are currently working for TCS in India. Ms Mueller made these remarks during the 18th Vice Chancellor’s media briefing, held on 6th June 2011 at Makerere University. She also noted that currently there are Ugandan students working in Japan, Finland and Nigeria, not forgetting those that went to Germany and Colombia last year.

“One of AIESEC‘s biggest achievements this year was organisation of the Career and Education Fair at the Freedom Square – Makerere University, where many employers interacted with students and shared leadership experience which is one of the fundamental goals of AIESEC” Mueller said. She further added that the organization is open to students of all colleges and welcomes all the interested students to seize this opportunity and apply for the second round of recruitment which opened on June 6th 2011.

The software development internship in India is in partnership with TATA Consultancy Services (TCS), a part of the TATA group. TCS is an IT business solutions outsourcing organization that delivers real results to global businesses, ensuring a level of certainty. It has over 160,000 of the world’s best trained IT consultants in 42 countries.
