There are a lot of unknowns about junior Emma Brodman’s upcoming internship in India, but one thing is for certain: she can’t wait to get there.

Emma is a sophomore Chemical Engineering student who first experienced India last year during a winter term study abroad trip.  She enjoyed the trip so much that Dr. Lalvani (CPB) offered to assist in finding her an internship there for 2016.

She will work with two different companies during her visit and live with two different host families. BEIL (Bharuch Enviro Infrastructure Ltd.) is one of the companies and is a hazardous waste disposal plant, and ETL (Enviro Technology Ltd.) is an effluent treatment plant. Emma still isn’t sure of her exact job duties, but will find out upon arrival.

“I hope to gain both experience and confidence from this trip. This is my first time traveling alone with the opportunity to work in a real engineering environment,” Emma said.

Stay tuned for more updates about Emma’s internship!
