JECRC University, arranged by IAESTE LC JECRC

Work description

(Experimental) Investigation of performance and emission parameters of spark engine using ethanol blends in gasoline. The main focus of will be on to find out performance and emission using ethanol blends in gasoline.

Brackets were added regarding to failure of the fulfilled tasks and assignments.

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

Salary was not sufficient, 2/3 of it was reduced to cover accommodation.

Language requirements

English - Level B1 was sufficient, higher level was not needed.

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

I was accommodated at hostel within the university campus. Price was not adequate regarding to offered place (overpriced). Place was provided by JECRC University/IAESTE LC JECRC.

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

The first meeting with the Head of Exchange was after my arrival at the airport. Another members were waiting at university campus and at the IAESTE office.
Events, organised by this LC, were highly dis-organised. Nothing was on time, they were not able to provide schedule for upcoming weekend even DURING the weekend. Nobody never knew where we were actually heading. I consider their members as very unreliable considering the place we stayed.

Meeting other foreign students

The first meeting with other exchange students was after my arrival to the campus. Another members were waiting at the IAESTE office next day.

Sport and culture

Sport facilities: Gym, basketball and volleyball court, cricket and football playground.

Food, local specialties

Food at the campus was fully vegetarian, mostly spicy and very oily. In the city centre was possible to find chicken and mutton meals at the restaurants ;-)
Local specialties - Samosa, Biryani, Paneer, Chapati.

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

- Internet connection: Skype, WhatsApp (most spread there), Messenger
- Post

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

Based on my stay and experience I DO NOT recommend undergoing any practical training or any other internship at the JECRC University or cooperation with LC JECRC.

What not to forget with you

- Basic medication (cold, diarrhea)
- Certain amount of liquor (40% and higher)
- Umbrella !!! ;-)
- Mosquito repellent

Benefits of the internship

- Better knowledge of my field of study
- Getting to know with very different culture and habits
- Improved technical English

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

Cooperation with LC JECRC was quite clear, members tried to be helpful. Management of the weekend activities was chaotic, disordered and very patchy.

Overall experience with IAESTE

Overall experience with IAESTE LC JECRC was satisfactory.
