WPI REU in Industrial Mathematics and Statistics 2015

The 2015 REU in Industrial Mathematics and Statistics Program will be held Wednesday May 27, 2015 - Friday July 24, 2015.

The students are expected to arrive at WPI on Tuesday May 26, 2015 and leave on Saturday July 25, 2015.

The application deadline is Friday February 20, 2015.

We will begin reviewing applications on Friday February 13, 2015.

To apply to the program:


  1. Fill out the on-line application form.
  2. E-mail to rpodell@wpi.edu a one-page essay describing your interest in participating in the WPI Program,
  3. Arrange to have two or three faculty write and email a recommendation letter. See below.

Applicants must be undergraduates (usually students about to enter their senior or junior year) who will not graduate before December 2015. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.


It is important that you make clear what particularly qualifies this student for the REU program at WPI. The applicant is applying for an intensive 8-week summer program in which the student will work closely with other students, a faculty advisor and a company representative on mathematical and statistical problems in business and industry. Please comment on the student's ability to work with a team of faculty and students, to communicate both orally and in writing, and to persevere in solving open-ended problems.

Please e-mail your recommendation to rpodell@wpi.edu.

This program is funded the National Science Foundation REU Site program under Award DMS-1263127.
