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
