Student Projects (Internships) & Campus Interviews

At IISER Pune research is closely integrated with education. BS-MS as well as PhD students are admitted through a rigorous selection process. Our flagship BS-MS programme incorporates research into the curriculum right from the second year through short and long duration projects in the labs of faculty scientists. Along with a thorough understanding of concepts, our students thus receive hands-on laboratory training and exposure to research. The fifth year of the course is entirely dedicated to a research project, often resulting in authorship on research publications for the students.

Since they work on 'live' research problems from day one, all our students are thoroughly trained not only in hands-on use of sophisticated equipment but also in trouble shooting, problem solving and evolving new research ideas. We have a fully industry-ready workforce, ready to start working in your organisation as soon as they graduate.

If you would like to hire trained manpower for your organisation or wish to get research projects done through student internships, we would be happy to organise your visit to IISER Pune for campus interviews.
