Final year IIT-I students will get internship opportunities with NHAI to work on road projects

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) will be lent technical help from selected final year students of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Indore to improve road infrastructure in Indore. The students will be selected as interns by the government agency to actively work in the field.

Moreover, the institute has also planned to adopt and transplant trees that were chopped during a highway construction project in the 200 acre of campus forest area. The transplantation will be assisted by the forest department.

The efforts are a part of a bigger vision by NHAI, who has decided to team with pioneer institutes to make roads safer. As many as 10 projects have been undertaken by the central government to provide sustainable infrastructure for highways in India.

In regards to this, NHAI has also partnered with IIT Hyderabad to establish a Transportation Research and Innovation Hub (TRI HUB) at the campus. They will together work on technologies for the National Highways in India.
