Institute for Mathematics
at NC State (IM@STATE)
Program Director: Hien Tran
Overview: The Institute
for Mathematics at North Carolina State University (IM@STATE)
is a dynamic environment where young mathematicians engage in
exciting and challenging research projects.
The major goals of the Institute
are to increase the number of students going to graduate school
as well as to improve the retention of American graduate students
in the first two years of graduate study. This is accomplished
through providing exciting research opportunities, a welcoming
mathematical community, and support/mentoring programs for under-represented
IM@STATE students will work on research
problems in a supportive, collaborative environment, which is
part of a vibrant research department with strong links to industry
and government laboratories. They will work with accomplished
faculty, gaining the skills and confidence they need to continue.
The Research and enrichment experience
for under-represented undergraduate students program (REU+)
is designed to provide a supportive REU experience for under-represented
students who may not usually consider an REU program.
The NC State Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
in Mathematics: Modeling and Industrial Applied Mathematics Program will expose undergraduate students to challenging and exciting
real-world problems arising in industrial and government laboratory
The Research Scholars Program in Mathematics at North Carolina
State University (S-STEM) aims to attract,
retain, and graduate academically talented, financially needy
students, with a degree in mathematics.
The objective of the Industrial Mathematical
& Statistical Modeling (IMSM)
Workshop is to expose graduate students in mathematics, engineering,
and statistics to challenging and exciting real-world problems
arising in industrial and government laboratory research. The
students also learn about the team approach to problem solving.
Mathematics at NC State has a proud tradition of graduating
a diverse population of American students. We extend a special welcome to Alliance Scholars, women and under-represented undergraduates in these programs as well. The Institute features a collaborative effort
between faculty at NCSU, and the Mathematics Department Chairs
from 4 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
The programs in this institute are
supported by grants from the NSF (MCTP, REU and S-STEM) and the NSA
