Visiting/Summer Student Program in Theoretical Computer Science – IMSc Chennai

IMSc ChennaiNote: Please note that IMSc Chennai will not have the usual lecture series based summer program in 2017. If you want to do a summer internship at IMSc Chennai this summer, then please contact the individual faculties (by email) whose work interests you.

The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai has a limited program for highly motivated Bachelor’s and Master’s students interested in doing theoretical work in Computer Science. This is typically for 6-8 weeks during the summer (May-July). There is also a provision for a 4-6 month visit (typically during January-April or August-November).

Who can apply: Students currently studying in their pre-final or final year of BE/B.Tech/B.Sc. or first year ME/M.Tech/M.Sc. or equivalent with a good academic record are encouraged to apply.

**Note: The institute’s interests are largely mathematical, and applicants should check the TCS page for faculty interests.

Applicants are expected to have studied basics of computing, such as principles of programming, data structures and algorithms. Having worked on the implementation of a large program, or a thorough knowledge of mathematical aspects (such as automata theory, combinatorics, computability, discrete mathematics, graph theory) will be an advantage.

Selected students will have an opportunity to pursue research-level studies in areas of interest at the Institute including algorithms, automata theory, combinatorics, complexity theory, concurrency theory and logic.
