Internship programmes are the last semesters for almost all professional courses like B.Tech and B.E.

The aim to include these internship programmes is it make students learn about practical aspects of the subjects what they have learned during the course.
They get exposure of professional life which they will have afterwards.
They learn to apply their theoretical knowledge practically.
Merely reading books does not make you capable of working in any firm or company. One must have an idea of working culture.

This per-exposure makes you comfortable in working zone.
