WPI Research Experience for Undergraduates
in Industrial Mathematics and Statistics
May 30, 2018-July 27, 2018
Supported by the National Science Foundation, Award Number DMS-1757685. Students work in teams on real problems that come directly from business and industry. They work closely with a company representative to define the problem and to develop solutions of immediate value to the company. They are guided by a faculty advisor to maintain a clear focus on the mathematical issues at the core of the project.
The REU program at WPI will answer questions like:
    What is the role of a mathematician in business and industry?
    What is it like to work with technical experts on a problem that requires significant mathematics but also must satisfy real-world constraints?
Each participant will receive a $4500 stipend and housing for the program, along with support to defray the cost of travel to Massachusetts.
