Summer Projects in Mathematics 2017

SUMMER PROJECTS IN MATHEMATICS AT THE TECHNION

Sunday-Friday, September 10 -15, 2017

The registration is now open until the 15th of July  (Registration form)

The Faculty of Mathematics at the Technion is inviting motivated undergraduate students (finishing their 2nd and 3rd year*) to experience research level mathematics in a week of projects. The projects will be mentored by professors, postdocs and graduate students from the faculty. Each group will consist of 2-4 students working on the same research topic. In addition, the program includes social gatherings with the faculty members. Housing, meals, and a stipend will be provided.

(*) Registration is open  for students from all departments as well as for master students at the beginning of their studies.
