Summer School and Winter School

The students of SIDTM (Formerly SITM) are encouraged to participate in Summer School and Winter School of various foreign universities and Institutes. The benefits to the students include international exposure, credit transfer, peer learning from international students and fraternity.

Students have to apply for Summer and Winter school. The choice destinations in the last few years have been “Telecom Ecole De Management” (TEM- Winter and Summer School), France, “Berlin School of Economics”, Germany (Summer School) and International Summer School “Hochschule Bremen”, Germany (Summer school) etc.

Summer School activity is carried out during the summer (in the month of July) and winter (in the month of December) of the year. In the last 5 years about 49+ students have benefited from this activity. This is a credit transfer program. For credit transfer: after attending Summer school /Winter school the students earn credits from foreign universities, which are transferred to SIDTM (Formerly SITM), so they get waiver/exemption from a few courses at SIDTM (Formerly SITM) (Subject to approval from SIU).

They interact with international students who are in pursuing programmes in management and are also exposed to different cultures during their stay abroad. The students visiting also have industrial visits and one of the highlights of TEM school is a visit to ITU (International Telecommunication Union), the Global body for the shared global radio spectrum, cooperation in assigning satellite orbits, telecommunication infrastructure etc.
