Internship for march-august 2019

The Computer Science Department of École polytechnique (France) is looking for research teams willing to host first year master students for a research internship this summer. The internship should last four to five months starting in April.

Founded in 1794 and known as the school of Cauchy and Poincaré, the École polytechnique is a state supported institution of higher education and research. It is is considered the most prestigious engineering school in France.

The students have been exposed to basic courses in first two years ( year 1, year 2 ) on programming languages and algorithms and some more advanced courses in year 3 on architecture, compilation, operating systems, complexity, automata theory, data bases, cryptology, computational geometry, image processing, networks, distibuted computation, logic, combinatorics...

Among the 500 students of the school, around 60 decide to do their internship in Computer Science.

If you are interested in hosting one of our students for such an internship, we would be grateful that you upload a one page proposal, if possible in postscript or pdf (txt and doc are also possible) .
