Ekalavya undertakes a significant amount of software and hardware development work in our Affordable Solutions Lab, to support our efforts in the National Mission on Education through ICT.

About Ekalavya - IIT Bombay

A brain child of Prof. D. B. Phatak of IIT Bombay, Ekalavya aims to enable better educational order and facilities for Indian students by using Information and Communication Technologies to develop innovative channels of knowledge dissipation. The Ekalavya portal is an attempt to generate an interactive platform for the creation, absorption, dissemination and usage of knowledge for the well being of the individual and the society. It is a significant step forward to bring together students, teachers, and working professionals to meaningfully enhance the productivity of the group and spread knowledge.

About the internship

All the work under the mission projects is released under Open Source. Consequently most of the tools and software environment used in Ekalavya  R&D, are also from Open Source Software(OSS). Interns will thus be working on Ubuntu (a variant of Linux), and using Java, Python, MYSQL/Postgress, GCC, open source flash, android IDE and other such packages. Even if you do not have adequate exposure to these, you will get ample opportunity to learn them during your internship. All we expect is that you are able to learn fast, and are able to meaningfully use what you learn.

Only those candidates can apply who:

1. are available for full time (in-office) internship

2. are available for duration of 8 weeks

3. have relevant skills and interests

Other requirements

1. Students graduating in Computer Science/Engineering, IT, or Electronics.

2. Who will be completing 3rd year in April/May 2014. Students completing 2nd year, with exceptional academic performance and other achievements may also be considered.

3. Students with experience in programming will be preferred.

Save yourself from fraud!

If an employer asks you to pay any security deposit, registration fee, laptop fee, etc., do not pay and notify us immediately. Remember, Internshala doesn't charge a fee from the students to apply to a job or an internship & we don't allow other companies to do so either.
