Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling (GSMM) Camp

The GSMM Camp is a workshop designed to teach graduate students a broad range of problem-solving skills, including mathematical modeling and analysis, scientific computation, and critical assessment of solutions. Guided by an invited faculty mentor, graduate students work in teams on highly interdisciplinary problems inspired by real industrial applications. As a result, the GSMM Camp provides a valuable educational and career-enhancing experience outside of the traditional academic setting.  


The GSMM Camp is run in conjunction with the MPI Workshop held June 13-17, 2022 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The MPI Workshop focuses on real-world open-ended industrial problems and draws both faculty and student attendees. The skills obtained at the GSMM Camp allow participants to become valuable contributors to the problem-solving teams at the MPI Workshop. This event also provides mentoring and networking opportunities with academic and industrial representatives. GSMM Camp participants will automatically be registered for the MPI Workshop by default. Learn more about both the GSMM Camp and the MPI Workshop. 


How do I apply? 

Applications must be completed by April 22, 2022 for full consideration, and successful applicants will be notified by early to mid-May.  


Full financial support is available for all participants. The selection will be based on academic background and interests as indicated in the application form and on a letter of recommendation from a faculty sponsor. Women and  students from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
