THEN, YOU SHOULD TALK TO US. YOU CAN:
  • Work with us on a CoLab project
  • Put together a DART (Data Analysis Response Team), with some of our Faculty

WHAT ARE CoLabs?
  • 5-6-month long projects consisting of at least 1 APPCAIR faculty member, 1 or 2 students, and at least 1 member of your organisation
  • The APPCAIR team works on a project, with weekly- or biweekly meetings, and usually delivers a report, well-documented software. Several CoLabs have resulted in publications as well
  • Low costs: faculty time; Institute costs; and if incurred, travel and equipment
  • You own the IP

Some other ways to work with faculty and students:
  • BITS Practice School 2 (PS-2): a 6 month internship, spent on-site (industry), by senior undergraduate. Students are effectively employees of the industry, and are paid a stipend
  • Undergraduate Thesis: 6 months, either on-site, or on-campus. Jointly supervised by APPCAIR faculty and an industrial supervisor, On-site students often paid an internship
  • Industry-based PhDs: PhD scholars either entirely on-site (BITS Aspirant PhD Programme); or partly on-campus (part-time PhD); or fully on-campus (full-time PhDs) on a industry-sponsored fellowship
  • Individual consultancies. These are the usual form of consultancy. Costs are paid to BITS and APPCAIR faculty according to mutually acceptable rates and Institute polcies of involvement (usually about 3 days a month)
  • IP in some of these cases may be jointly owned by you and BITS
