2019 Industrial Math/Stat Modeling Workshop for Graduate Students – July 14-24, 2019

Location: The IMSM workshop was held at SAS Hall on the campus of North Carolina State University.

Objective: Exposed graduate students in mathematics, statistics, and computational science to challenging and exciting real-world projects arising in industrial and government laboratory research. Students gained experience in the team approach to problem solving.

Setup: Students collaborated in teams of 5-7 on projects presented by experienced scientists and engineers from industry and government. The projects were not classroom exercises, but require fresh insight for their formulation, computation and solution. Each student team was mentored by a problem presenter and a faculty adviser.

Benefits to students: In the IMSM workshop students learned how to tackle such challenges, and work as a team on a tight deadline. They also gained experience working with teammates on putting together a presentation of results and a written report, which could potentially be considered for subsequent journal publication.

By providing a unique experience of how mathematics and statistics are applied outside academia, the IMSM workshop helped many students in choosing a lucrative career in this discipline. Not only does the IMSM workshop broaden the students’ horizon beyond classical graduate education, the experience also inspires students interested in academic careers by providing them with a renewed sense of excitement.

Benefits to companies: Often the student teams come up with valuable solutions to a company’s problem. Companies are encouraged to take advantage of the recruitment opportunity provided through direct contact with talented graduate students in the mathematical, statistical and computational sciences. A number of projects initially presented at the IMSM workshop have resulted in long-term collaborations of companies with students and faculty. Companies and labs tend to show continued interest in the IMSM workshop as a regular and enthusiastic contributors.

Cost: Students will stay free of charge in a dormitory on NC State campus, and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Registration: Students must be registered graduate students at a U.S. university at the time of the IMSM workshop, and are requested to submit a CV, a transcript, and a statement of interest. A letter of recommendation must be submitted by the advisor.
