UNDERGRADUATE SUMMER RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS 2018
SCHOOL OF ELECTRONICS, ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING & COMPUTER SCIENCE AND GLOBAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE
The School of EEECS and Global Research Institute will be supporting a number of Summer Research Internships over the Summer 2018 holiday period. The aim of the Scheme is to identify and develop researchers of the future. It is hoped that the internship will improve employability by developing experience and key skills such as problem solving, team working, and self-discipline.
The scheme is open to all EEECS Undergraduates (apart from students on the BIT degree pathway and students who are due to graduate this summer).
Each school internship will last between 6-8 weeks and will pay a weekly stipend of £250 for each week worked (GCHQ internships will pay £300 for each week worked).
Accommodation and travel costs are not provided under this scheme.

Please Note: The internship must take place during the Summer and successful applicants will be encouraged to negotiate start and finish dates with their supervisor. It is possible to split the internship to allow for summer holidays. Please note that the internships will be offered across three sites (the Ashby Building, ECIT and the Computer Science Building).
