There are two disciplines in SciTech:
- Medicine/Life Science/Biology
- Exact science/Engineering
- Willing to try Both (this option increases your chances of being accepted to SciTech)
A placement in the Medicine/Life Science/Biology means that you are willing to work with microbes/tissue samples/blood sample.
Working with animals (for example dissecting mice) is optional in this category.
The placement is done by the academic committee, based on your application, the mentors request and other considerations.
We cannot guarantee that you will be placed according to your preferences.
If you do not wish to work with animals (for example: dissecting mice) we guarantee that you will not be placed in such a project.
Notification of the participants’ final project placement will be sent via e-mail a week before SciTech begins.
We recommend participants prepare adequately for their project according to the email they get (i.e., read the scientific paper and prepare answers to the questions sent to you) prior to the program start.
