About the Workshop

Would you like to go to a summer program and be paid to study mathematics? Do you know what mathematical research is? Would you like to be a College Professor? How about a successful career in the private sector? If you are a mathematics undergraduate student and wonder what you can do to boost and enhance your career, join us for this one-day workshop. You will learn about the many opportunities for a successful career in Mathematical Sciences. There will also be an exciting math talk by Prof. Erika Camacho. Free registration, free parking, free lunch and snacks!

Registration will be open through March 28, 2015.
The workshop will run from 9am to about 5.30pm.
With the help of math faculty, graduate students and professionals, we will explore the many opportunities available for mathematics majors after graduation. We invite all sophomore and juniors from local institutions who are contemplating a career in the mathematical sciences. Under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to join our workshop. Throughout the day, students will have ample opportunities to meet with recruiters from graduate schools and summer research programs.
