All undergraduate students in the Mathematics Department must complete a 20 days long summer internship program. Those of you who want to do their internship in an academic setting can do so by working in a research project related to mathematics in any university other than Bilkent. If you want to acquire further information for academic internship please contact internship coordinator Hamza Yesilyurt.

To complete your internship you should follow the following steps

  1. Apply to a suitable company for your internship. Research and Development department would be a good place if there is one in a company. The work you undertake must be related to mathematics. If needed you may use the mandatory internship requirement form ( Form 1) .  Make sure you include a well prepared resume in you application as well. Once accepted have them sign (Form 2) and submit it (or any similar form the company/school can provide such as an acceptance letter) together with internship confirmation form (Form 3) to the internship coordinator. Internships that last less then 20 working days will not be accepted. Make sure the duration of internship entered in the forms covers at least 20 working days. Last day to submit Form 3 is the first Friday of the first week of June.

  2. You can start your internship after the internship coordinator approves Form 3.

  4. Please record your daily activities in your internship diary  Form 4 and obtain your supervisor 's approval.



  1. Once you complete your internship ask your supervisor to fill out student evaluation form (Form5) . This form should be given to you in a signed closed envelope. Student evaluation form and internship diary must be submitted to the internship coordinator by 5 pm on the first Friday of the week that the lectures starts in the fall semester.

  2. The internship committee makes the final evaluation of your internship.

  3. Next fall after completion of your internship you must enroll in Math 399 . This is a noncredit class. You will receive a passing grade for this class if your internship has found to be satisfactory by the internship committee.
