Meteorology Internship (MMI) is an intensive one-year program in the Philippines with an emphasis on meteorology, earth observation, and remote sensing.
It is offered in collaboration with the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).
Philippines is one of the most popular countries for students studying meteorology.
The country has been the most impacted by Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated many areas.
As a result, many of its universities and institutes were affected, as were some of its meteorological facilities.
According to a report by the Philippine Meteorological Administration (PMA), the MMI internship program is among the most sought after in the country.
As an intern, you’ll be working in one of our MMI laboratories and participate in a variety of field projects.
The internship is one-day program, which can be completed in three to four weeks.
The MMI is a full-time, four-month program that will involve a total of about 10-12 hours a week.
This is an intense program with the possibility to graduate from one to four years later, according to PMA.
In this year’s program, interns will work on field research, satellite photography, and monitoring of tropical storms.
MMI is offered through a program called Global Meteorological Center (GMC), a joint venture of the Philippines National Institute of Science and Technology (INST) and the Department of Science, Technology and Innovation (DTI).
The program also offers internships for undergraduate students, junior scientists, and postgraduate students.
Internship programs at PMC are based on the following criteria: students must be 18 years old, have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited Philippine university, and possess a high school diploma.
MMI offers internship programs in Manila, Cebu, Metro Manila, and other parts of Metro Manila.
Internships will also be offered at a variety locations.
In the Philippines, internships are offered through programs run by the PAMI, the Philippine Institute of Technology and Science, and the Philippine National Institute for Science and Engineering (INSE).
MMIs interns work at various institutes, universities, and meteorological stations.
MMIs interns are responsible for monitoring satellite and weather data, and are expected to report directly to the chief meteorologist of each facility.
Interns are also expected to monitor and interpret the data.
Intern activities include monitoring and reporting data and observations of the weather.
MMAs meteorological program will continue to evolve and improve through the program’s completion.
Students working in MMI’s Meteorological Institute will have a chance to participate in field research projects, which are conducted by interns.
This internship is designed for undergraduate and graduate students who are looking for opportunities in the field of meteorology and meteorology related fields.
Intern participation in meteorology is a requirement for becoming a meteorology graduate.
