CEP has taken a new initiative of starting Summer Faculty Research Fellow Programme since 2008. The main objective of this progamme is to help in inducting and inculcating research culture among the faculty of engineering and science institutes outside IIT system. The visiting faculty fellows stay in IIT Delhi during the summer and work with a faculty mentor who is a regular faculty of IIT Delhi. This way 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. The faculty fellow will also get an opportunity to interact and work with the faculty and research students of the group and get exposure to the equipment and lab facilities associated with the faculty mentor. Access to other general facilities such as the central library would also be feasible.
