CSUMS Program

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is pleased to announce an NSF funded program in the Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS). This is a collaborative program involving Rensselaer and Howard University. The goal is to enhance computational aspects of the education and training of undergraduates, and to better prepare these students to pursue careers and graduate study in fields that require integrated strengths in computation and the mathematical sciences. The organization and components of the program provide a mentored research environment that is designed so that creativity, invention, and scientific communication skills are promoted and developed. The program will also broaden significantly the educational and professional experiences of the participants as they will regularly interact with scientists and engineers, both theoretical and experimental, at other academic, industrial and government laboratory facilities.
