Overseas Research Internship

Feedback from participants

Overall, my work experience at IIT Ropar was a pleasant one. I was thrilled and enthralled by the sheer amount of techniques and languages I learned over a span of 8 weeks of being an intern. Not only did this internship make me a web stack zealot but also advanced my personal growth. I was exposed to many aspects of application development, which cannot be taught in a classroom; they can only be experienced by working under supervision and for me, this remains the most enduring benefit of this internship.

The environment in Kyushu University is very tranquil and peaceful, which I reckon is a great place for doing research because there are not many distractions. After settling down and getting familiar with the neighborhood, I started my research right away under the supervision of Taiki. Given the duration of stay is only one month, I therefore continued the research on the same topic as my final year project research topic, the facility location problem with optional preference. I tried to reinforce the model so that it could be more complete and fit into more real life scenarios. Taiki advised me to include false-name-proofness into the research and see if I could find any interesting results.

Time flew and my one-month internship in Kyushu University felt shorter than I had thought. It's a fruitful and memorable experience. I wish to thank Dr.Li, Taiki and all the people who helped me and provided me with guidance and care. I will continue my study to explore more in-depth in future.
