How useful is a PTCL internship compared to that of a not-so-well known place?

aoa. I'm currently a 3rd year student doing BS-CS from FAST. I secured a place in PTCL's internship program for this summer. At the same time, I also got involved with a lab of FAST that is doing work in robotics/avionics. I was wondering, how useful will PTCL's internship be for me in the long run compared to that of a not-so-well known lab. I mean, for job prospects later on, will the PTCL internship be significantly helpful in any sense or does it not matter where the internship was done. Thank you.

PTCL internship won't be of much help. Go with the lesser known lab if you'll get practical on-job training, mentorship and a chance to do some level of development.

I second this opinion. If you're seriously planning to go for the lab side (dev side) or in industry, it's necessary to get practical knowledge and mentorship which can also be done on -not-so-well known place. What matters is experience and practical knowledge. IMHO, go for it not for PTCl.

    and the occasional FB market place buying and selling, otherwise I don't think I've actively posted something on it until like an event or something.

    The only reason i have to maintain one is because of relatives back in Pakistan who aren't savvy enough to use Whatsapp etc.

    so many people calling out and wishing harm on phil personally for games running better on the PS5. It's nuts how wild people can get with anonymity.
    Damn, Twitter often devolves into a really crappy place
