RESEARCH IN INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS FOR STUDENTS @ UCLA
Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) 2023, Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA

In contrast to most summer research experiences that focus on an academic problem where students work closely with an academic mentor, RIPS students apply their mathematics knowledge to a real-world industrial problem, with an emphasis on problem solving using whatever methods are appropriate. In this way, RIPS is a cross between an REU and an internship.

RIPS is a program for students who are enrolled in or have just completed an undergraduate (bachelor’s) degree. Recent graduates who have received their degree no earlier than December 2022 may apply for RIPS 2023. Students with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in seeing how mathematics is used in the real world are encouraged to apply. Most of the projects have a significant computational component, so that proficiency (or at least some experience) in computer science, data analysis or numerical computation is valuable, but not necessary for everyone. Competition is high for the limited slots available. International students are eligible to apply for RIPS-LA.

Levels: Freshmen, Sophomores Juniors & Seniors
