Hyderabad: Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, has launched the ‘IITM Young Research Fellow’ (YRF) programme to motivate students towards a career path in research and application of deeper learning in other career tracks. Inspired by the highly successful ‘Super-UROP’ programme at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the YRF programme is open to third year undergraduate and dual degree students of IIT, Madras.
The programme provides one-on-one interaction with IIT faculty members, to participate in cutting edge research. The students will also benefit personally, through a ‘career and life coaching’ (CLIC) programme concurrently being delivered by the 1979 alumni, closely curated by expert professional coaches.
The project is being funded by the alumni class of 1979. The MoU was signed on Saturday by Institute Dean Prof Mahesh Panchagnula and twenty-four alumni of the 1979 batch across the world.
