Description: 

In the RIPS program, teams of students, directed by faculty advisors, work to solve industry-related problems. RIPS brings together highly qualified undergraduates in mathematics or related majors with sponsoring industry, government, and nonprofit organizations to collaborate on projects. Each team of three to four advanced students spends two summer months working on a problem posed by the sponsoring organization under the leadership of a faculty advisor. At regular intervals during the two-month period, oral and written presentations reporting on the progress of the team are made. Company liaisons provide regular contact between the team and the sponsor, monitoring and helping to guide the work effort. Projects focus on problems of serious interest to the sponsor and stimulating challenges to the students. Participation in RIPS provides valuable real-world technical and managerial experience for students and valuable R&D for the sponsor.

In addition to our annual RIPS-LA program held on the UCLA campus, we will offer RIPS-Beijing and RIPS-Berlin in 2010. The basic format of the program is the same as RIPS-LA. English is the only language required for participation.
