6 Months training program for mechanical engineers

Mechanical engineering is an engineering discipline that requires an understanding of areas like mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, structural analysis, materials sciences and more. Mechanical engineers also must be fluent in computer-aided design (CAD), product lifecycle management etc. At present, many universities have a mandatory requirement of 6 Months training program for mechanical engineers, to get their degree. It is a welcome move for students pursuing their degree in mechanical engineering must undergo an industrial training program to get that first-hand experience of how the industry really functions.

Now, many private and public sector companies accept mechanical engineer trainees for a defined period.
Govt sector companies like NTPC, BHEL, ONGC, GAIL, SAIL, Indian railways etc. and private companies like TATA Steel, Mahindra, Yamaha India, Coca-Cola accept trainees in their facilities. Interested students can apply to the program via their respective websites or contact the companies directly via personal contacts if they have someone working in there.

There are private firms which provide training on different software like AutoCAD 2D & 3D, CATIA, Solidworks, Autodesk 3ds Max etc. used in mechanical engineering design which should help if one wants to pursue his/her career in mechanical design.
One can also apply in websites like Internshala for mechanical engineering internships and training to be industry ready.

So, what are your thoughts on this topic? Do you know a better training opportunity for mechanical engineers? Also, to all the pass out mechanical engineers in the CE community, where and how did you apply for training during your engineering days? Do share your part in the comments below.
The problem that I hear when engineering students from mechanical branch ask me suggestions about training is that they often cannot do lengthy courses which last for six months as they cannot obtain a leave of absence from their college. So I would suggest to go for courses that are just as important but they last for 2 or 4 months so that their college studies are not affected. You can take up software training programs in AutoCADD 2D & 3D, CATIA , Solidworks, Creo , Unigraphics NX & PDMS which last for two months. If you are looking for industrial training you will have to set aside four months for Automobile + Plant Automation + Hydraulic & Pneumatic + In Plant Production Training, or CNC Design & Programming + CNC Practical + Plant Automation + Hydraulic & Pneumatic + In Plant Production or Plant Design + Plant Automation + Hydraulic & Pneumatic + In Plant Production Training.
