Partnership with AIT Alumni
As of December 2018, AIT has graduated 23,933 young professionals from 102 countries and territories.
In order to maintain and strengthen the existing partnership between the Institute and its alumni, the Office of Advancement and Alumni Affairs (OAAA) has taken greater scope/responsibilities with a view of proactive efforts to work with the AIT Alumni Association (AIT AA) Mother Chapter and its 25 National Chapters and Alumni at large to jointly promote AIT’s academic programs as well as launch new initiatives that will contribute to the long term viability/sustainability on the Institute.
For official communication channel of AIT to its alumni body, Alumni Affairs has also maintained a mailing list with almost 15,000 active e-mail addresses of alumni.
Internships for AIT students
“Internships provide an excellent opportunity for students to apply their knowledge in real world environments and at the same time develops skills that help them perform well in their future jobs. It is also a great way to network and teaches soft skills that employers are increasingly looking for.” – Professor Said Irandoust, President, Asian Institute of Technology.
As alumni you can nurture talent and create opportunities for the current AIT student, our future alumni, by becoming their mentor and/or giving them a chance to learn from yourselves or to have internships at your company/organization. This is a win–win situation between your organizations and AIT students. And the OAAA serves as a bridge between AIT students and your company/organization by establishing and enriching this alliance.
INTERNSHIP PERIODS: Generally, there are 2 internship periods when students would be available for internship opportunities: 1st Period: Mid Dec to Mid Jan and 2nd Period: Mid May to Mid August. However, in some cases students would be able to intern during their 3rd semester for a project or research work, and the internship period could be agreed upon between the students and your company/organization.
Student-workers and Contractual Internships: In addition to the conventional internships, which could be part of the students study requirements, some students, especially those do not receive full scholarships, are willing to work during a semester break as student-workers to earn extra income to support their study at AIT. If your company/organization needs such service of AIT students just let us know. And if your company/organization requires a long term commitment from AIT in providing a required number of students and/or specific expertise, the OAAA could also serve as a bridge between your company/organization and the AIT respective department/School.
