Summer Faculty Research Fellow Programme 2017

Indian Institute of Technology Delhi conducts the Summer Faculty Research Fellow Programme (SFRF) every year since 2008 for the aspirant faculty fellows from various institutes and colleges of India.

The objective is to facilitate and orient the faculty fellows to undertake research. The faculty fellow gets an opportunity to interact and work with the faculty mentor and his/her research students and is exposed to the equipment and lab facilities associated with the faculty mentor.

The visiting faculty fellows stay in IIT Delhi campus during the tenure of his/her project. The duration of the summer programme ranges from four to eight weeks depending upon the complexity of the project selected by the faculty fellow. A faculty fellow who is planning to start on their PhD (or post graduate research programme) can spend the summer months (May-July) under the guidance of an active research faculty mentor of IIT Delhi.

In the summer of 2017, 99 faculty fellows from various engineering institutions/colleges joined the programme, and were mentored by 50 faculty members of IIT Delhi.
