International Math & Physics Summer Camp (IMPSC)

24-04-16 00:30


Greetings by the Head Director

Thank you for your interest in the International Math & Physics Summer Camp (IMPSC). I am Dr. Shubhrangshu Dasgupta, a Professor of Physics at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) and the Head Director of both IMC and IMPSC. It is our pleasure to offer this opportunity for high school students in collaboration with the esteemed professors at IIT.

We are organizing a summer camp for students who show exceptional promise in mathematics and physics. Over three weeks of intensive physics and mathematics classes, we aim to provide  substantial support to those planning to pursue degrees in science and engineering.

Thank you.


International Math & Physics Summer Camp (IMPSC)

IMPSC is a three-week online program that focuses on math and physics.

During this 3-week intensive program, you will have the opportunity to enhance your skills in both mathematics and physics.

IIT is a prestigious engineering institution where students must complete 432 credits to graduate. Notably, many CEOs of Silicon Valley companies are IIT alumni, highlighting its world-renowned reputation as a university that nurtures exceptional talent.

We are confident that your proficiency in math and physics will see significant improvement through our IMPSC this summer.
