Math-to-Industry Boot Camp IX

Applications are due Friday, March 15th, 2024.


The Math-to-Industry Boot Camp is an intense six-week session designed to provide graduate students with training and experience that is valuable for employment outside of academia. The program is targeted at Ph.D. students in pure and applied mathematics. The boot camp consists of courses in the basics of programming, data analysis, and mathematical modeling. Students work in teams on projects and are provided with training in resume and interview preparation as well as teamwork.

There are two group projects during the session: a small-scale project designed to introduce the concept of solving open-ended problems and working in teams, and a "capstone project" that is posed by industrial scientists. Recent industrial sponsors included Cargill, Securian Financial and CH Robinson.  Weekly seminars by speakers from many industry sectors provide the students with opportunities to learn about a variety of possible future careers.
