Transform your PASSION for sustainability into ACTION!

At EMC, we consider internships a key opportunity to get mentored on real-life projects and to be exposed to some of the frontier areas in environmental management and sustainability.

The period of internship is for a minimum period of 2 months and a maximum of 6 months and runs throughout the year.

Interns have the choice to work full time at EMC’s offices in Mumbai, Ahmedabad or Delhi .

Yes. The ‘e-internship’ is open to both Indian and international students.

The interns are expected to get involved in some of the ongoing projects at EMC and conduct research on new/emerging topics. We suggest topics, but we are open to propositions made by the interns.

Typically, an internship at EMC is sought by undergraduate or postgraduate students to meet their academic requirements. However, some students do want to avail internship before undertaking higher studies to get a better focus for research. There are also applicants who want to intern with us before or on returning to India to understand the opportunities and make connections.

A mentor at EMC guides the intern’s work. The intern is expected to make presentations during the internship and report on progress.

We typically receive more than 200 internship applications worldwide every year. Generally, we admit around 10 interns a year, so an internship at EMC is very competitive and highly sought after.

On successful completion of the internship period and the basis of the outputs delivered, a Certificate for Internship with EMC is issued.

We encourage our interns to produce a publication or contribute to a knowledge product at the end of the internship.

After the internship is successfully completed, we offer the deserving intern a position as a research assistant so that they can continue working with us and subsequently make a career at EMC.

We stay connected with our interns through a WhatsApp group. We do significantly invest our time in mentoring and consider our internship program as our social responsibility. Interns are, of course, our brand ambassadors.

How to enroll:

Getting an internship at EMC is very competitive. At EMC 200+ applications are received each year. Interested interns have to submit their CV citing two references through the online portal. Once the CV is shortlisted, interns are asked to submit a Statement of Purpose and a recently written output. An interview is conducted in the final round.


For interns who work from EMC office in Mumbai, we offer a modest stipend depending on qualifications and experience of the intern. The stipend provided to the intern is a token of our appreciation. It does not imply any honorarium or salary. We do not provide accommodation facility to the intern during the internship period. For the ‘e-internship’, there will be no stipend provided.
