CIMS aims to build partnerships between WPI, industry, and the general mathematical community that benefit industrial sponsors, our students, and faculty.
Things We Do:
CIMS focuses on how the intersection of mathematics and industry benefits both. We do this in a range of activities: from collaborative projects between industry, WPI students and faculty to workshops on how industrial problems can motivate students to learn mathematics. Companies gain insight from a fresh set of eyes on a particular problem of interest, students learn how mathematics can impact the world around them, and educators benefit in how mathematics can be used in new contexts.
Working with over 70 different companies on hundreds of student-industry projects in the past 20 years, in applications ranging from manufacturing, finance, actuarial science and multiple areas in engineering.
