IIT Bombay undertakes a significant amount of software and hardware development work to support our efforts in improving education at all levels and assisting various governments in the same.
They have trained more than 1 lakh engineering faculty on various engineering topics and have successfully launched an opnedX based IIT BombayX MOOC platform. IITB is actively engaged in enhancing the online and blended MOOC education delivery models and effectiveness and are branching out into supporting education in fields other than engineering.
IITB is also actively involved in central government’s ambitious National Virtual Library project.
In May-June 2018, around 73 interns worked on summer internship projects. These internship projects develop useful software for our initiatives while simultaneously enabling the participants to fulfil summer internship requirements of their respective academic programs. Feedback shows that these projects go a long way towards career development of the participants. Many pieces of work done by the interns have been publicly launched.
All the work under the summer internship is released under Open Source. Consequently, most of the tools and software environment used in the R&D, are also from Open Source Software(OSS).
You will thus be working on Ubuntu (a variant of Linux), and using Python, MYSQL/Postgress, JAVA, GCC and other such packages. Even if you do not have adequate exposure to these, you will get ample opportunity to learn them during your internship.
You will be engaged for a period of 7+ weeks. Your project leader will evaluate your work at the end of the internship. We expect everyone to work hard, and successfully complete the assignments well in advance of the last date.
You have to stay within the IIT campus. Hostel accommodation will be made available to you during the period of internship.
IITB will not be extending any financial support except paying your enrolment fees. You will have to manage expenses during your stay in IIT on your own.
Apply for internship only if you are completing 3rd year in April/May 2019. Students completing 2nd year, with exceptional academic performance and other achievements may also be considered.
Candidates will be selected based on academic performance in their school/college/university, and on their technical accomplishments. The reputation of the college and the performance of past students of that college in our internship program, may also be taken into account.
Selected candidates will also take a mandatory written (timed) online programming test in C. You can use your email to register in this site where you can practice problems. This site was developed by four members of the 2015 internship team.
All problems will be (at most) a slight variation of the problems already provided by the above site. You will get a few days to practice before the online test. Minimum 70% marks will be required for confirming your selection.
