The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is excited to share with you its upcoming 2023 Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) summer research opportunity for undergraduate students! In this program, students work in teams on projects that are sponsored by an industrial partner. The projects cover a wide range of real-world topics, including big data, optimization, transportation, quantum computing, and biotech. We offer two locations for the RIPS 2023 program: RIPS-LA (UCLA campus) and RIPS-Singapore.

We expect to hold both programs in person in 2023. However, the pandemic situation may change at short notice and we will need to adapt accordingly.
