    Update: Heard from someone who completed the TCS iON RIO 45 internship. The course is very easy to do if you are good with the basic programming and engineering concepts.

    Moreover, the certificate of internship offered by TCS carries weight if you apply to internships with other companies.

    Better option is to get the TCS internship certificate and do internship with smaller companies or startups. It will give you better exposure and knowledge of how the industry functions.
