Summer Research Programs - India

The Viterbi School of Engineering's India summer research programs offer engineering students at USC and partner institutions the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience supervised by faculty members at hosting institutions.

The two-month research internships give Viterbi graduate and undergraduate students research opportunities, while at the same time bringing international students and researchers to USC to work in collaboration with USC faculty. The program also promotes short-term faculty exchange visits of up to one semester.

Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) announces the Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) to create unique opportunities for science, technology, engineering and medical students from the United States to undertake internships in national laboratories, federal research centers, academic research institutes and private R & D laboratories in India.

SN Bose Scholars Program
To nurture future innovators and thought leaders, the Science & Engineering Board (SERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) are partnering to develop a dynamic and transformative student exchange program between premier institutions in India and the United States. The program is named in honor of Satyendra Nath Bose (1894 - 1974), a visionary Indian physicist best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s. The class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, Bosons, was named after him.
