UCLA – 2018 Research in Industrial Projects for Students

2018 RIPS 2018 Flyer-16uyta6

Dear Professor, Advisor, Faculty or Staff,
The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) runs a unique summer program for undergraduate students. The Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) provides an opportunity for exceptional students in math and related disciplines to work in teams on real world research projects proposed by a sponsor from industry or a national lab. Sponsors have included Google, Symantec, Los Alamos National Lab, the Aerospace Corporation, Los Angeles Police Department, Arete, IBM, and many others. The RIPS web site at gives the full details including a link to the online application. We encourage all bright, young students to apply, especially women and minorities.

This is an educational and very exciting two month program near the heart of Los Angeles at one of the premiere educational institutions in the United States. If accepted the program covers the student’s travel, housing and most meals, and offers a generous stipend. Students immerse themselves in research and learn how to deal with real world problems.

In addition to RIPS in Los Angeles, IPAM will offer RIPS-Hong Kong in 2018 in partnership with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. This is an exciting opportunity for U.S. undergrads to work with students from Hong Kong / China on projects sponsored by companies based in the region. English is the only language required for participation. The format is the same as RIPS-LA; two American and two Chinese students will form a team.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2018. Please refer your students to the site and encourage them to apply. (Note: graduating seniors are eligible for all programs; international students may apply for RIPS-LA only).

I have attached a PDF poster with this email. If you’d like to request copies of this poster or for more information on RIPS, please email or call me at 310-825-4755.

Advance Registration Appointments Spring 2018

Dear Advisors,
On Tuesday, students’ registration appointments were posted in their MySJSU accounts. Just FYI, attached are the registration time slots that were posted. Also attached is a MySJSU message that is going out today to undergraduate students about the important registration dates. (Remember- MySJSU and the spring 18 registration process is closed from 5pm on 11/16 to the morning of 11/20.)

As you meet with and communicate with students, some things to remind them about are:

•To register right at their registration time slot (or as soon as possible if they are in class/at work). To definitely register before 11/16.
•If they have financial concerns, they need to go talk to the Bursar’s office about fee deferral. They should not postpone registration because this could ultimately cost them a lot more in late fees or extended semesters of tuition if they don’t get in needed classes.
•Right now is the time to check for holds on their account and to address them.
•Right now is the time to make sure they have looked at MyRoadmap and MyProgress and know the full set of classes they need to take in spring.
•They can use MyScheduler to set up their schedule and “shopping cart” before their registration appointment and then just submit it when their time slot comes up. (They don’t want to do it too far in advance in case sections fill up.)
•They can only wait list up to 5 units. If they need to wait list additional units, they need to contact their department chair. (Also, remember our goals is to get them in the class, not simply on the wait list. If you see long wait lists for a class, please talk to the department chair.) Remind them that the wait list goes away after the last day of regular registration (Jan 21st).

Let me know if you have questions or issues.



Math 143C

Dr. Cayco has just scheduled one section of Math 143C for the spring semester but says that she can open another one if need be. If the first section of Math 143C is full and you would like her to open another section just make sure to sign up on the wait list for the first section. Cheers, Brad J
