Location: Carpenter 235
Sessions: 10:00am - 12:00pm on Various Days.
A key pillar of the ESMI program is the Applied Math Research Project. ESMI scholars are required to attend a seminar course designed to equip them with the proper skills and mentors to see their summer research project to a successful conclusion during the Diversity Summer Research Symposium.
During the first two weeks of the program, scholars meet everyday for two hours in the computer lab located in Carpenter 235. After the initial two weeks of instruction, the seminar will relax to two-hour sessions meeting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in Carpenter 235. These sessions will focus on modeling practices and problems and provide scholars time to work on their research project.
ESMI scholars may work on a research project individually or in pairs. They will be mentored by the seminar instructor for the duration of the program.
