    Dear Nikita,

    My suggestion is to start with resources at NYU, such as:

    1) Does NYU have a career services center, that might have contacts with companies the recruit at NYU or specifically offer internships?
    2) Does NYU have a student chapter of AIChE, which might have contacts with companies or alumni that might have information about internships?
    3) Does NYU have an alumni network / database / etc. that might help contact alumni?
    4) Does anyone in the ChemE department have industry connections (Professors, MS or PhD candidates with previous industry experience, etc.) that might help?

    In my experience, finding a connection with someone at a company looking for interns is one of the best ways to get an opportunity.  If there are any ways for you to leverage the resources at NYU, that could be a good place to start.  (Of course, the success of this depends on many factors, including the strength of the resources, how specific you may be looking for a field / organization / geographic area for an internship, etc.)

    Best of luck to you!
