For the second time, from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura one of our Physics Special Degree students, Miss. Harshani Srikanthi got selected for the summer student internship at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland-the most prominent particle physics research institute in the world. Ms. Harshani Srikanthi participated to the program during 25th June to 18th August 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland. This summer internship included travel cost and everything she needs during her stay at CERN Campus. This is a very rare opportunity for an undergraduate student to join research work at the world most prominent research institute which has the world largest particle physics accelerator lab.
In addition to the work in the experimental teams, Summer Students attended a series of lectures specially prepared for them. Several scientists from around the world shared their knowledge about a wide range of topics in the fields of theoretical and experimental particle physics and computing.
