The Summer Student Lecture Programme (SSLP) aims at providing a pedagogical introduction to all the areas of the CERN research Mission. The lectures are addressed to students in Physics, Engineering and Computer Science. Basic background in Physics and Mathematics is the only pre-requisite. During the five weeks of the Programme, basic foundation courses are followed by more specific lectures. By attending the Programme, the Summer Students will be exposed to the activities of CERN as a whole and to its multidisciplinary essence.

The Programme is organised by the SSLP Committee with representatives from the CERN Departments of Experimental Physics (EP), Theoretical Physics (TH), Beams (BE), Engineering (EN), Information Technology (IT), International Relations (IR) and Human Resources (HR).


Note: given that the 2020 Summer Student programme had to be cancelled owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, we organized an online 2020 programme based on the video recordings of the 2019 programme. The video recordings are complemented with live Q&A sessions with the lecturers.
