ECMC internship program supports project logistics organizations in attracting and developing next generation of young talents through an enhanced internship program that exposes students to career opportunities in the project logistics industry.

About the Program

ECMC has created unique conduit for logistics and supply chain students to gain exposure to the project logistics industry through internships with its diverse group of members ranging from manufacturers to freight forwarders to engineering, procurement and construction companies. The single-entry point through ECMC unveils students to some of the top companies in the project logistics field offering opportunities for immediate knowledge, career planning, work experience, and critical networking for their future in a project logistics career.

While each company is diverse in their functions within the project logistics industry, the program is designed to allow interns assignments in everything from HSSE, financials, planning, procurement, import and export compliance, and contracts all under the support of an industry professional as a mentor. Internship periods are flexible to student and company needs ranging from part-time or full-time during summer, fall and spring semesters and can culminate in a capstone presentation to senior project leadership.
