In May-June 2019, around 55 interns worked on summer internship projects. The internship projects develop useful software for the above initiatives while simultaneously enabling the participants to fulfil summer internship requirements of their respective academic programs. The feedback shows that the 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 our R&D, are also from Open Source Software(OSS).

Even if you do not have adequate exposure to these, you will get ample opportunity to learn them during your internship. You are able to learn fast, and should be able to meaningfully use what you learn. You will be engaged for a period of 7 weeks. Your project leader will evaluate your work at the end of the internship. The department expects 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.
IIT Bombay 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.
IIT will provide you library reading room facility, and limited access to Gymkhana facilities. A certificate will be issued on successful completion of internship.
