Beasiswa Swis Bidang komputer – Summer Internships for BSc and MSc Students
The School of Computer and Communication Sciences provides internship opportunities in the Summer period for students enrolled in BSc, MSc, or equivalent programmes in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Telecommunications, or Electrical Engineering. Internships are assigned competitively to students with excellent academic results.
During a period of at least two months and including the whole month of July, internship students get the chance to learn new skills and to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field while working personally with leading senior scientists. Participating students will work in a research unit, typically to solve problems which are usually part of major research efforts. Often, this will lead to performing challenging programming or design tasks to prove new concepts. Being an intern at EPFL is a highly motivating learning and working experience in a competitive research environment, but it is also a great way to get familiar with another culture, to start building a network of connections in Switzerland, and to get prepared for a global career! And, last but not least, it is a chance to spend some months in a region rich of natural attractions and offering a multitude of leisure opportunities.
PRACTICAL STEPS DATES (every calendar year)
Application by the student Before around 1st FEBRUARY (3rd FEBRUARY 2013)

The minimum duration of an internship is two months but longer stays are strongly encouraged. The exact duration depends on the availability of participating students and on the agreement of the hosting laboratories. It is strongly recommended that the internship period includes the whole month of July to enable participation in some programme-wide activities.
Internships require full-time commitment (~40 hours/week). Therefore, participating students cannot attend another summer school or commit to other activities that could interfere with their work schedule.
