Internship Program

Internship forms a key component of higher education. In current time it is a challenge for students and young professionals to get the perfect internship placements. It is an even greater challenge for internships in the environmental management space.

Many capable and deserving students often do not get the opportunity to work at organizations where they can contribute to the work as well as learn. Their potential largely remains untapped due to lack of mentoring.

In India, there are no mechanisms of connecting Universities and Organizations for Internships. Our internship program has been designed to address this critical gap. We involve our interns in the projects we work with and mentor them. Interns prepare a work plan and make presentations on their progress and at the end submit a report. Often the outputs get published giving the intern confidence and recognition.

Getting internship at EMC is very competitive as we take around 4 interns out of 200+ applications we receive. Interns have to work full time. Minimum period of internship is 2 months and maximum is 3 months. Interested interns need to submit CV, a Statement of Purpose, any recent written output and cite two references. Internship is open only for Indian Nationals.

We offer a modest stipend in the range of Rs 5000 to 10,000 /month depending on qualifications and experience of the intern. Please note that internship at EMC is not an employment. It is a program designed to provide experiential learning to graduate/post graduate students in the field of environmental management. The stipend provided to the intern is only to help meet the subsistence and a token of appreciation. It does not imply any honorarium or salary. We do not provide accommodation facility to the intern during an internship.

'e-internship' is now open at EMC!

We are now accepting applications for 'e-internship' at EMC. Given the lockdown situation due to Covid-19, we have designed our 'e-internship' program such that interns can work with us remotely from distance.

Once the project and duration of internship will be agreed upon, a mentor will be assigned to the intern who will stay connected online. A weekly workplan will be prepared and the intern will make presentation to the EMC Team every week.

The 'e-internship' is open to both Indian and international students as well. However, there will be no stipend provided to the e-interns.

  • "Extensive learning, supporting environment & fun... is how I would describe EMC. Internship @ EMC has been one the most enriching & fulfilling experiences for me."

    - Vineet Shastry
  • In terms of my overall experience, my internship experience at EMC was truly enriching. In addition, it helped me improve my writing and communications skills. The experience was more than I could have expected and allowed me the freedom to develop other skill sets beyond the project assigned to me. It gave me valuable exposure to a completely new field of environmental compliance, gave me an insight into corporate culture and exposed me to different services provided by a consulting firm.

    - Karan Jagtiani
  • The fortnightly presentation is what I feel is quite helpful to keep you on the ground and show where you stand, what have you not looked up yet and how you should proceed further, getting advice from all of the staff.

    - Ankur Thakur
  • Dr Modak provided valuable guidance in drafting and writing the reports, with interesting inputs in the form of examples. I especially admire his ability to pull nuggets of information from diverse sources on the spur of the moment, and piece them together in a way that adds value to the project at hand.

    - Rhea Cordeiro
  • The internship duration has added value to my career, not only as a professional but also as a person. I would like to whole heartedly thank Dr. Modak for giving me a chance to intern at EMCentre.

    - Shweta Arora
  • I received ample guidance whenever required. I have achieved more than I intended to learn from the internship

    - Anuja Sawant
  • Working with EMC has taught me more about the Environment and various tools than most of my time in college. I know these skills will greatly serve me in my academics as well as future working life.

    - Jay Baviskar
  • My internship experience with PMA, was an extremely rewarding one. Having moved back to India fairly recently, I was not really sure what to expect; but applying for and accepting the internship was the best decision I could have taken for both my personal and professional development.

    - Pooja Joshi
  • EMC has motivated me to work and think pragmatical. Variety of exposure gave me a chance to identify my specific interest at the same time I realised the importance of team work and group discussion.

    - Prathama Dolas
  • It was a wonderful experience working with EMC. It really helped me to strengthen my theoretical skills and learn more on the subject. One thing that needs to be explicitly mentioned is, Dr. Modak's way of explanation is really worth listening. His words can easily bring a professional out of an amateur.
