The Graduate Programs of the Department of Mathematical Sciences offer many opportunities for professional development and academic support. Read on to learn about some of the opportunities.

The RAMP (Review of
Advanced Mathematical Problems) is a four week hands-on problem-solving
experience offered to incoming graduate students. Students entering the program
in the fall and not needing to follow the English Language Institute training
are given the chance to come to the department for four weeks during the
summer. In this time, faculty and senior graduate students help in review
sessions covering key aspects of the undergraduate curriculum and preparing the
freshmen for the rigors of the new semester. In addition to the reviewing
experience, The RAMP has the added value of creating ties in the incoming class
and introducing them to faculty and current graduate students. Some social
activities and attendance to the Summer Research Symposium give plenty of
opportunities for social interaction and learning about the department
First year students are encouraged to participate in a summer research experience. This is a non-binding commitment with a faculty advisor to participate in a 6 or 10 week long research program. The UNIDEL summer fellowship involves the student and their adviser in a 6 week research plan. The competitive GEMS (Groups Exploring the Mathematical Sciences) brings together a first year graduate student, an undergraduate student, and a faculty adviser in a 10 week research project. The GEMS-UNIDEL summer programs include a weekly pizza seminar and culminate in the Summer Research Symposium where the results of the projects are presented.
The WRS typically takes place on Friday of the first week of the spring semester. It is an afternoon of presentations by senior graduate students, be it in the form of a short talk (for a general audience) or a poster. A graduate program alumnus is in charge of the keynote address and a long break with food and drinks doubles as the lively poster session. The WRS includes the announcement of the winner of the Wenbo Li Scholarship for Graduate Research. At the end of the WRS, two posters are selected for the WRS Poster Award, which includes a juicy travel allowance for the winners and the glory of having their winning poster exposed in Ewing Hall’s lobby for an entire year.
Upcoming Winter Research Symposium:
