Results This will carry presentation and analysis of the salient information that has been gathered in order to test the hypothesis. This section will vary considerably in both length and content depending on the nature of the topic. It may include models or systems constructed by the author as a result of the investigation. Significant features of the results must be clearly indicated. Raw data, if appropriate, should be presented in appendices.

Where you have extended recommendations (this may be the case with a practical organization based project) you may wish to cover recommendations in a separate chapter.


References List all references used in the text in alphabetical order by the author's surnames according to the convention detailed below:

Reference Format The Harvard style of referencing should be used, using the form (Jones, 1997: 7) to indicate the author, year of publication and page number in text. References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper Citations The Harvard style of citation should be used, using the form '1982: T to denote year of publication and page numbers. Multiple referencing of one author or group of authors with the same year of publication will be identified by the addition of small letters (a, b, c etc) after the year. However the author's name must be repeated. It is acceptable to use 'et al' for subsequent citations after the initial citation provides the full author list. Quotations of four lines or more should be indented and in single space. Shorter quotations should be included in the text using quotation marks. Where quotations are used, page number(s) must be included so that the exact source is obtained. All Journal titles should be cited in full. Bibliography References should be set out alphabetically, by author's family name, following the body of the paper. Books Freeman, RB and Medoff, JL (1984) What Do Unions Do?

The significance of the summer training can be appreciated from the fact that it is an opportunity for the students to put into practice the knowledge gained during the entire first year. (Frequently companies, during campus interview, ask questions regarding their summer internship). In this regard please take note of the following: 1) 2) The summer training project demands that the student is proficient in report writing, data analysis apart from functional skills. It is an absolute must that the student is disciplined and well behaved during the entire period of the summer training. The Institute will take any misconduct whatsoever seriously. The student must keep the institute informed about his/her progress on fortnightly basis by sending an email to CRO and always mark a copy of every mail to Faculty Mentor on his/her email address or the vice-versa. The student must feed the AIMT office numbers (0120-2343503) and faculty mentor's cell phone number in his/her cell phone so that calls from the Institute can be identified and immediately attended to. The student must maintain an individual daily dairy wherein he/she is required to write daily observations related to ST in his/her hand writing. The pages of the diary must be numbered. The student is required to furnish the following information within ten days of the joining: Name of the industry mentor with email address and cell phone number, date of commencement and completion of the training, title of the project, and name of the company with complete postal address, landline# and website. In most of the cases the topic for the ST project is given by the industry mentor but in some cases he/she may ask for the topic from the student, in that case you should be mentally prepared and ready with some topics after consulting your faculty mentor. If in case the project allocated by the company is the team project, you may work on that project and submit the report with the company but for the academic requirement you shall be submitting the individual summer training project report. No two project reports with the same title will be accepted by the Institute. Student must ensure, as far as possible, the use of primary data and should form the hypothesis and then test the same.

The student must ensure that their Industry Mentor is fully satisfied by the quality of his/her efforts. The student will be visited in summer training organization by the faculty mentor and he/she is required to facilitate the meeting of faculty mentor with the industry mentor. The student must procure the brochure, annual report, visiting card (of industry mentor, office bearers in HR) etc. of the corporate to enable the Institute to pursue final placement in the very same organization in which the student is undergoing summer training. At the end of the training, the students must obtain a "certificate of training" from his Industry Mentor which should clearly state the duration of the training (in any case the duration must not be more than 8 weeks), the project title, the feedback of the guide etc. This certificate of training will be enclosed in the Final Project Report.

The report format will be provided to the student. The report must be hard bound in black leather and with white ink demarcations. The student must submit the original documents like daily diary, filled up questionnaire and interview details separately with the project. While evaluating the project the judges will go through the project report and original documents. The student will be required to make power point presentation of summer training project in the Institute before the group of faculty members, industry mentors and students after the completion of the summer training. The student must revise the basic and the fundamentals of the core subject. The student may get in touch with the faculty mentor for any input required.
