WHIMS (What's Hot In Mathematical Sciences) is a weekend long workshop run by the department of Mathematical Sciences during the fall semester. During this weekend, students get to visit the department and hear all about what is happening in mathematics in Delaware, through talks delivered by faculty and senior graduate students. The visit includes time to get to know Newark, have dinner out with graduate students, and learn about the program. The WHIMS program is by invitation only (we contact faculty and they recommend participants), and is mainly oriented to students currently studying in the US, outside the local area surrounding Delaware (PA, MD, NJ, DE). However:
- If you are interested in attending, ask one faculty adviser in your university to contact the graduate director and we will contact you back explaining how to apply.
- If you are from one of the states surrounding Delaware, there are other opportunities to visit the department (read on). You can still apply for WHIMS, but preference will be giving to students outside the local area.
- If you are not an undergraduate student in the US, ask a faculty adviser in your university to contact the graduate director. We will not be able to offer you full funding, but your application will still be considered.
Apart from WHIMS, the department offers two open houses for the graduate program. Domestic students having fulfilled their application for the Graduate Program for the Fall semester receive an invitation to join us for the Winter Research Symposium (see LINK TO GRADUATE PROGRAM ACTIVITIES) or for an open house later in the spring semester. We offer some limited financial help for those students who have to travel a long distance.
