8/9/2018

The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program successfully concluded its 8-week session on July 20.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program successfully concluded its 8-week session on July 20. The program had 14 students working on four different projects, alongside Department of Mathematics & Statistics faculty mentors John Clifford, Thomas Fiore, Joan Remski, and Yunus Zeytuncu. 

REU is a competitive summer research program in the United States for undergraduates studying science, engineering, or mathematics. The programs are sponsored by the National Science Foundation, and are hosted at various universities. 

Three of the UM-Dearborn groups have been invited to present at the Young Mathematicians Conference in Columbus, Ohio on August 10-12. This conference is the country’s most competitive undergraduate research venue in which to participate.  All of the groups have already presented at the regional Summer Undergraduate Michigan Mathematics Research (SUMMR) conference at Michigan State University, and at least two of the groups are close to finishing research papers to be submitted soon.

Congratulations to all students involved, and a big thanks to their mentors.
