MTBI Summer Program 2018
Accepting Applications: November 15 - January 31
Please read the information below before applying
MTBI is an intensive summer research experience that prepares undergraduate students for the rigors of graduate level research at the interface of mathematics, statistics, and the natural and social sciences. Select students are invited to Arizona State University for eight weeks, where their time is split between classroom instruction on research methods and hands-on research projects.
***MTBI is a research experience for undergraduates (REU); it is not an internship, and students will NOT earn college credit for participation.
Participants receive intensive instruction in dynamical systems, stochastic processes, computational methods and modeling delivered by top scientists and guest speakers from around the world.
At MTBI, students don't work alone. Everything, from homework to research, exists in a collaborative environment with fellow participants, graduate students, postdoctoral students, and visiting scholars. Students work in self-selected groups on research problems of their own choosing, while collaborating with experienced faculty and graduate student mentors. At MTBI, students select their own research topics, not faculty. By the end of the summer, students have complete a high-quality technical report and research poster, which are presented at national conferences to an audience of their peers and colleagues.
