RIPS Summer Program in Industrial Math

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 2017 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 14, 2017. 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.
Best regards,
Dimi Mavalski

No add code will be required to register for those courses.

ATLAS summer internship program

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) is a not-for-profit research division of the world-renowned Johns Hopkins University. Located in Laurel, Maryland, JHU/APL is one of the nation’s premier centers for systems engineering integration, technology research and development, and analysis. With a staff of 6,000, annual funding over $1.08 billion, and a wealth of intellectual capital, JHU/APL has served as trusted advisors and technical experts to the government for more than 70 years.
JHU/APL is currently seeking full-time students with a strong academic record for our APL Technology Leadership Scholars (ATLAS) Internship Program. The ATLAS Internship Program is offered to well-qualified, highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Minority Institutions (MIs) who have an interest in applied scientific research. This highly competitive 10 – 12 week paid summer internship program focuses on building technical and leadership skills that will uniquely prepare students for careers in science and engineering.
Our goal is to help students understand and appreciate their own aptitudes, grow personally and professionally, and envision their future careers. In addition to performing cutting-edge research, ATLAS summer interns attend professional development seminars that teach them how to operate effectively in professional and business environments and address interpersonal skill development, interviewing skills, and resume preparation. They also get the chance to practice communication skills such as technical writing, public speaking, and presenting.
ATLAS applicants must have completed at least their sophomore year of college prior to beginning the summer internship, have a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average, and be pursuing a degree in one of the following technical fields:
· Aerospace Engineering
· Computer Engineering
· Electrical Engineering
· Mechanical Engineering
· Computer Science
· Mathematics
· Biology
· Geology
· Physics
I encourage you to share this email and the attached information about JHU/APL and the ATLAS Internship Program with your students. Having successfully hired more than 30 interns as full time employees, the ATLAS Internship Program presents an excellent opportunity for potential full time employment to follow.
Videos of ATLAS alumni who are now full time employees can be viewed on YouTube. Applications should be submitted online by December 31st.
I appreciate the time and effort you will put forth in passing this information along and look forward to receiving some strong applicants from your respective university. Please contact me if you should have any questions.
