What is the difference between 'project work', 'dissertation work' and 'internship'.
I am a student of MSc Biotechnology and i have a paper 'project work' which i have to do any college, institute or university and have to submit a dissertation or thesis.
But i think these three are much more similar to each other and so i am confused. Should i be eligible for do any internship now? Please clear me this.
Hi Indira u have brought up a good question. Well Project work involves study about a particular aspects such as phenomenons, biological functions, or a molecular functions at an experimental level. In other words it means that u do a comprehensible experiemental study based on previous studies or a study that is entirely new. Dissertation is a literature thesis preparation. that involves clubbing up all the experimental work in a particular study. It could be either be literature preparation or thesis thro experimental study. At the end it would involve oral presentation in conferences and workshops etc. Internship is all about work. U work for a particular institute or a company at a designated position and get experience. The experience amounts both to work culture skills and management as well as scientific skills that u would be deriving thro a experiemental study. Hope this helps.
