COSTFORD aims at spreading, for the welfare of society, the technologies and knowledge it has developed or has been using successfully. Hence, we invite architects/engineers or students of related fields to join us as trainees. This helps them be aware of and learn the ideologies and technologies we are working with. Apart from this, we also arrange special sponsored trainings in other vocational fields such as masonry, carpentry, welding, plumbing, electrical works, etc.

We encourage students to get direct exposure of the field. Our policy is for all of us to be involved as much as possible in all aspects of designing and constructing all our buildings without getting stuck over a drawing board or staring at a computer screen.

As we are a non-profit making voluntary organisation, we are not able to pay any stipend to student trainees; however, we help arrange the accommodation and maintain the travel expenses incurred during the various site visits.

Students who are willing to do their Internship with COSTFORD (Architects/Civil engineers) can email their Portfolios and Resumes to, we will respond to your mail as soon as possible.
