GoBoiler Internship Program

GoBoiler Interns 2019

For the summer of 2020 the GoBoiler internship program targets European undergraduate students with specialization in computing. Students who are interested in research and curious about graduate studies at Purdue in Computer Science will benefit most from this opportunity. Learn more about 2019 GoBoiler Interns.

Interns will be working closely with a Purdue research team on cutting-edge projects. They will be involved in the day to day life of a research lab and get to take part in all aspects of CS research. They will also enjoy opportunities to socialize with graduate students and explore Indiana in the Summer.

Student presents

The Department of Computer Science will provide funds up to $3,000 for the August 1, 2020 to September 30, 2020 program. This will include travel reimbursement up to $1000, plus $2000 in living allowance. The department will provide housing.


This internship program is designed to strengthen Purdue's computer science relationships and form new partnerships throughout our global community.  An internship brings many benefits: advancement of professional skills, collaborations with top researchers, and exposure to a new language and culture.  Everything is done to give students a taste for an international scientific environment and hopefully, they may come back to Purdue to undertake a PhD or postdoctoral research. Some potential projects.

The deadline for applications is April 1. Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 1.  

To apply, send all of the following materials electronically to goboiler@cs.purdue.edu.
