Summer Projects in Mathematics 2017


Sunday-Friday, September 10 -15, 2017

The registration is now closed 

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.
