Why do you want an internship at IBM only?? There are so many other good companies...
Hahaha! I did my internship from IBM. It was not worth it. My suggestion, if your interning to gain knowledge and experience, better go for a startup.

Hey Anamika, IBM offers internships to BE or B.Tech students of Computer Science, IT, Electrical, Electronics, and Management stream. IBM Research Labs India (IRL) provide summer research opportunities every year. You can apply for this internship program through following ways:

  • Campus Recruitment: IBM visits some reputed colleges across India for hiring interns. If your college has tie up with IBM, then you can apply through this option. 
  • Apply on company website: You can directly apply on the IBM website. You can filter for your desired location and field.
  • Through a referral: If you know someone who works at IBM, ask them to provide you a referral. This will gets you a telephonic or face to face interview.

If you apply directly online then you would be asked to upload your resumes. Following the initial screening based on the resume and application, a telephonic interview or an online aptitude test (IPAT) is scheduled. You need to clear this test to qualify for face to face interview.

@Anamiks, Just like any other internships, you can either apply in their company website,  referral, campus placements, external job/internship websites such as internshala, muse, etc.

You will need basic qualification as pursuing a degree in BE/B. Tech in CS/IT/EC/TC/IS fields.
