PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: For the fall of 2019, the UIUC-TU Wien Research Internship program is an opportunity for international undergraduate students from TU Wien with specialization in Computing. Students who are interested in research and curious about graduate studies at University of Illinois in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science will benefit most from this opportunity. Students will have the opportunity to conduct research under the mentorship of UIUC research staff and faculty. Students will be involved in the day to day life of a research lab and get to take part in all aspects of research. They will also enjoy opportunities to socialize with exchange students, and graduate students within the labs as well as explore UIUC campus life during the first 5 weeks of the semester.
TU WIEN students are responsible for their travel cost to UIUC, campus student fees, housing, and health insurance. Student fees including health insurance and housing will be billed to the student directly by UIUC. (Housing is pre-arranged for students).
PROGRAM DEADLINE: The deadline for applications is April 1. Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 15.
