Stage estivi nella ricerca per studenti - UROP Internship

La Facoltà di scienze informatiche incoraggia e promuove il talento dei propri studenti di Bachelor e Master offrendo loro anche l'opportunità di stage estivi (summer internship) nell'ambito della ricerca accademica, all'interno di un programma denominato Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program - UROP.

Gli stage sono extracurriculari e l'accesso è su base competitiva. Gli studenti lavorano a stretto contatto con un professore con l'obiettivo di sviluppare un'approfondita conoscenza sia dei concetti appresi nel corso del semestre sia del tema di ricerca. È un'ottima occasione di crescita, soprattutto per gli studenti che pensano di intraprendere una carriera come ricercatori.

Le opportunità di ricerca per quest'anno sono elencate di seguito (le informazioni sono disponibili solo in lingua inglese).
