The School of Mathematical Sciences at RIT has developed an Undergraduate Research Program where students work directly with faculty on ground-breaking and exciting research projects.
We are delighted to announce that we have been designated as a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates Site! We will be holding summer research programs in 2012 and 2013.
Get in the Game!
When a star athlete chooses a college, two major concerns are: the quality of the program, and the amount of playing time he or she will see. The same is true for academics. In fact, some of today's best and brightest high school students are passing by Ivy League schools for other that provide innovative research experiences for undergraduates.
At many large universities, faculty members work with Ph.D. students on research ventures, but here at RIT, undergraduates are our main focus. Here, students collaborate with faculty researcher on a variety of projects in both applied and theoretical mathematics. We are proud to be sending six undergraduate students to present their research at the 2012 Joint Mathematics Meetings to be held in Boston in January.
At RT, mathematics and statistics majors don't just sit on the bench, they get in the game!
