Mathematics Major/Minor Brochure: Undergraduate Research in Mathematics
The mathematics department offers Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs), see http://math.rutgers.edu/~reu/ . During the academic year, interested students can get a taste of mathematical research working with professors on an individual basis. Participating students are expected to have a strong mathematical background; good computer skills may also be required. Their research projects must have department approval.
During the summer an intensive eight-week REU program is available for a limited number of undergraduates. Each student's individual research project will be assisted by a faculty adviser. The program includes seminars and other social and professional activities. Students are selected on the basis of their academic performance and their compatibility with the available projects. Participating undergraduates receive a stipend and housing. Under NSF rules, only citizens or permanent residents of the U. S. are eligible. Women, members of minorities, and disabled students are encouraged to apply.
