This year they will have 3 tracks which you can work on and you will have to choose 2 tracks of your choice, one primary and second one that is secondary. And you will work on only one track.
And the tracks for this year are:
1) DataMining Track: Foundational issues in data mining applied to a variety of types of data. The course is oriented around a hands-on project that will offer students the opportunity to gain experience with available tool kits and work towards making their own contribution to this kind of work.),
2) Educational Games: Digital games tap into popular culture to let us reach learners in a fun, engaging way. The purpose of this track is to expose students to foundational issues in educational games. The course is oriented around a hands-on project that will offer students the opportunity to design and implement a novel game around a subject that they choose, while gaining experience with available tool kits for game development.
3) Image Processing Track: The purpose of this track is to expose students to the foundational issues in image processing. The course is oriented around a hands-on project that will offer students the opportunity to gain experience with available tool kits and work towards making their own contribution to this kind of work.
This internship program provides valuable research training opportunities for Indian undergraduates through a partnership between one of India's premier technical universities and one of the top ranking schools of computer science in the world, with the goal of expanding the pool of talented young researchers in India. A secondary goal is to provide a mechanism through which ongoing research partnerships can form and flourish between researchers at institutes for higher learning in India and researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, such as taking the form of co-advised B.Tech projects. And finally, the internship program directly benefits the infrastructure for education in India as a biproduct of the research projects the students will engage in. As part of the internship program, participants will focus on topics relevant to education in India, and in the developing world more generally.
Stages: The internship program is composed of two stages. In the first stage, students apply to participate in a two-week winter school in early December in India. During these two weeks, students will attend lectures that will cover research and research methodologies, tools and techniques, insights about theory and practice, and a broad overview of the field of technology-supported education. Students will participate in team projects, which will be presented in demo sessions at the end of the winter school. Students who successfully complete the winter school will be invited to apply for research internships at Carnegie Mellon University. Successful applicants for stage two will be matched with internship advisors for a summer internship at Carnegie Mellon University's main campus in Pittsburgh, USA, for the summer. Some financial support for the summer internship may be available.
Who can apply: 3rd year BE/B.Tech students are eligible.
Location: MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore
Duration: 2 weeks (December 9 - 23, 2013)
**Note: You are required to pay for transportation and living expenses during the winter school. Estimated total cost is Rs. 5000
