QCRI’s 2016 summer internships begin
QCRI’s Dr Eman Fituri and other staff members welcome some of the students participating in QCRI’s 2016 Summer Internship Programme.
Thirty-five students are starting internships at the Qatar Computing Research Institute this summer.
The interns are being given the opportunity to work with specialists on research and development projects in Arabic language technologies, data analytics, social computing, cyber security, distributed systems, and computational science and engineering.
Dr. Eman Fituri, QCRI’s Director of Educational Initiatives, said the internship programme had gained popularity since it launched in 2012 with six students.
“The programme gives students the opportunity to work closely with our world-class scientists and software developers,” Fituri said.
“It was designed to support the best computer scientists and engineers of tomorrow.”
Previous QCRI interns have gone on to co-author major research papers and win distinguished awards at the QF Annual Research Forum.
