Engineering Internship

Central Asia

Project Details

Interns will join a humanitarian aid organization currently focused on providing drinking water systems, small-scale irrigation systems, and agricultural aid. Interns are a vital part of our organization’s local work – designing and employing several hydraulic ram irrigation pumps, evaluating potential drinking water or irrigation systems, developing project plans, and implementing projects. Interns will learn cross cultural differences in working on projects and community development and also learn how to use a job as a means of interfacing, learning and building relationships with nationals.


  • Sophomore or above
  • Completed two years at university prior to internship
  • Male (due to location culture)

Must exemplify high standard of values and morals in all areas of life. Interns must have high initiative and be “self-starters.” They will need to be willing to go out into the culture and develop relationships with little guidance or direction from supervisors. Interns are not required to have completed coursework in the preferred majors, but a general understanding and past experience in at least some of these fields are required.
