TSSP ExSci – Toruń Students Summer Program in Exact Sciences

TSSP ExSci is an opportunity for students of foreign universities to lead a 4-week-long summer research project in one of the following areas: astronomy, physics, mathematics, informatics, automatics, robotics, computer science.
The main component of the summer program is an active participation in the selected Science research project offered by the staff members of the Nicolaus Copernicus University. Interested students are welcome to contact possible advisors for more details concerning the foreseen projects and discuss the dates that the project could be undertaken. The NCU students can join to each project.
Apart from the projects, once a week we will organise an invited lecture and a lunch or dinner for the entire group. We will also offer short trips / sightseeing in the Toruń area on selected weekends. All students will be asked to give 15-minute presentations about the results of their projects at the end of their stay in Toruń.
