The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) exists to ensure the strongest interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, and conferences.
Listed below are the intended activities and goals for the San Diego State University student Chapter:
- Goal: To provide perspective at both the undergraduate and graduate level on how is Mathematics being applied across many disciplines, including Computational Science and Engineering.
- Organizing meetings on a regular basis (four times each year) to involve faculty and student members across San Diego State University campus to exchange ideas and share experiences in research, thus promoting interdisciplinary collaboration.
- Inviting (domestic and international) speakers to give talks on interdisciplinary research frontiers, as well as on their accessibility to both graduate and undergraduate students. These talks will address career development in applied mathematics, as well as in Computational Science and Engineering.
- Organizing field trips to research institutions and industrial corporations in the Front Range region that shall give graduate and undergraduate students experiences on how mathematics is applied across disciplines, including Computational Science and Engineering.
- Create a symbiotic relationship between this Chapter and the Applied Computational Science and Engineering Student Support (ACSESS) program, which provides U.S. industry with a unique opportunity to help capture and sustain global economic leadership.
- Include talks and lectures from potential student members from this Chapter into the following programs:
- Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program, which is a federal program that helps underrepresented U.S. students make transitions from a two-year community college to a full four-year degree program.
- Scholarships for Undergraduate Student Participation in Computational Science and Engineering Research (S-STEM) program which intends to assist academically talented, financially needy students to explore opportunities for computational modeling and simulation research in science and engineering disciplines.
