Why should you consider enrolling in this seminar?

  • Have you ever wondered what opportunities in academia and industry are available to those with a mathematical sciences degrees?
  • Are you interested in learning more about a variety of research areas from speakers who will gear their talks to an undergraduate audience?
  • Do you need one more unit to meet the minimum course load requirement?

 What happens in this seminar?

Speakers will represent a variety of fields where mathematical sciences are used in research. Past topics come from diverse fields including: computer graphics, bioengineering, numerical modeling of tsunamis, probabilistic weather forecasting, and more! Speakers will describe the work they do, why it's interesting and how they use mathematical sciences in what they do each day.
