The Research in Industrial Projects for Students Program in Singapore (RIPS-SG) is run by the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) in collaboration with IPAM/UCLA and provides an opportunity for talented undergraduate students to work in international teams on a real-world research project proposed by sponsors from. The student team, with support from their academic mentor and industry mentor, will research the problem and present their results, both orally and in writing, at the end of the program.
The program is open to students from NUS, students from Asian universities and students who are U.S. citizens.
The program is nine weeks. We expect to have three to four projects. Projects vary, but all involve mathematics, statistics, data science and computer science to some degree.
Who should consider applying to RIPS-Singapore?
RIPS is a program for students who are enrolled in or have just completed an undergraduate (bachelors) degree. Students with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in seeing how mathematics is used in the real world are encouraged to apply. Most of the projects have a significant computational component, so that proficiency (or at least some experience) in computer science, data analysis or numerical computation is valuable, but not necessary for everyone. The program is open to NUS students, students from ASEAN countries and U.S. citizens.
