DRDO or "Defense Research and Development Organization" is an apex institution of central government which co-ordinates the activities of many research laboratories spread across the country.

These laboratories are doing research in diverse fields ranging from life sciences, electronics and materials development to missiles, armament and armored and heavy vehicles.

I have read that one needs to contact the individual laboratory as per the subject of his/her specialization.

For the training in DRDO you have to send there NOC (no objection certificate) from the college's Training & Placement Department and a request application in the favour of DRDO. After receiving the acknowledgment or approval letter from DRDO, one can begin his/her training.

If anyone has complete details please post here.

Details regarding placement can be seen here: RAC, Home

Or here goes the text: -

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I think this is something that many engineering students are looking for.


I recently heard from a friend who works at DRDO as a junior scientist that it's mostly through trial and error. Meaning that anyone applying for internship should write a letter to the specific department's DRDO Lab Director and get it signed on it from your college or University HOD (Head of Department) or Dean and send it through FAX.


Students should obviously highlight their skills and mention the papers written or presented. Don't forget to add your contact details.


DRDO works for the following mentioned departments of military technology:

  • Aeronautics
  • Armaments
  • Combat
  • Vehicle
  • Electronics
  • Advanced computing
  • Simulation and life science
  • Naval System

If the lab director finds you suitable, you will most probably hear from them via email or call for the next round i.e. an interview.


All the best.

@Ankita Katdare • 17 Jun, 2015 I recently checked the DRDO website hoping that there could be an update to this discussion. I found that DRDO has now set up a page. Check:
https://www.drdo.gov.in/drdo/English/index.jsp?pg=job_student.jsp

Apparently, the receive many, many requests for summer internship at DRDO, industrial training at DRDO and final year project work at DRDO.

DRDO Labs are not all located in the same location. They are spread out across the country. There is no centralized system that can monitor your application/resume and send it to appropriate department.

Therefore, DRDO officials want you to choose any one of the DRDO Departments from the following:
  • Armaments
  • Materials
  • Electronics
  • Heavy Vehicles
  • Missiles
  • Life Sciences
  • Aeronautics
  • Naval Systems
  • Combat Engineering
  • MED
Each lab under DRDO & Indian Ministry of Defence has different training policies based on their security restrictions.

Only the Director of the lab can authorize any industrial trainings.

DRDO wants you to directly contact the Director of the concerned lab through the Head of your College/Institute.

Anyone here applying? Anyone has any queries? Please put your questions/comments below.

@Manisha9 • 28 Apr, 2018 Can u plz suggest some iinforinfor regarding internship for ECE students
@Ankita Katdare • 19 May, 2018

@Moksha Reddy‍ Looks like not a lot of members have done their internship from RCI Hyderabad. From the reviews of some of the jobs sites, it is clear that the interns get to work on a lot of interesting projects during their internship at RCI. A typical day starts with security checks and the staff and mentors seem to be helpful. However , there are certain limitations for access to specific labs inside RCI, DRDO. 

Do share your experience of working as an intern at RCI.
