Note for Undergraduate Intern Applicants

There are no short-term positions (internships less than 4 months) available as the time is too short for research. Apologies for not being able to individually respond to the numerous student emails enquiring about this. If you have an option to conduct your final year project in your seventh semester (duration of 4-6 months) and have a good profile, please contact the Dr. Sriram Ganapathy by email.
