Textbook Companion

The Textbook Companion (TBC) activity aims to port solved examples from standardtextbooks using a Free/Libre and Open source software.

Objectives:

  1. Make individuals learn FLOSS through a practical approach.
  2. Provide a huge database of Textbook Companions as a learning resource.
  3. To make it easy for users of such textbooks to start using FLOSS.
  4. To improve the documentation available for FLOSS.

Note: Due to the shortage of funds, the FOSSEE Project is not in a position to pay you the honorarium for activities like Textbook Companion, Lab Migration and Niche Software Activities. However, we will continue to issue the e-certificate and give credits on our website for the contributions made. This policy will be effective for proposals accepted on or after 10 August 2020. Please note that the FOSSEE project may change this policy in the future.

This internship is available for the following FLOSS supported by FOSSEE:

Scilab PythoneSim OpenFOAMDWSIMROpenModelica

Lab Migration

Lab Migration aims to migrate labs that use proprietary software to a Free/Libre andOpen Source Software (FLOSS) only lab. Colleges can save a large amount of moneythat is spent on procuring licenses for commercial software by switching to FLOSS.

Objectives:

  1. Provide suggestions on the different ways FLOSS can be implemented in the laboratory.
  2. Coordinate the migration of the lab to a FLOSS only laboratory.
  3. Provide solutions to the lab’s problem statements.

We currently offer Lab Migration for the following FLOSS:

Scilab eSim OpenFOAMR DWSIM

Niche Software Activities

To popularise FLOSS in all colleges in India, we have initiated various activities that aim to convert typical projects undertaken by students as their final semester/year project or any mini project during undergraduate or higher studies. This can get good students attention from industry which can result in possible internship and subsequent employment. Some of these activities are

  • Flowsheeting in DWSIM
  • Circuit Simulation in eSim
  • Case Studies in OpenFOAM
  • Flowsheeting in OpenModelica
  • Power Systems Simulation in OpenModelica and OpenIPSL
  • Xcos Simulation
