The CU Boulder graduate student chapter of SIAM was founded as an organization to meet the needs of graduate students interested in mathematics and its applications. Chapter functions include technical presentations by students, faculty, and industry speakers, field trips and social events. Most recently, this has included participating in the annual Front Range Applied Mathematics Student Conference, monthly seminars on student research, presentations from mathematicians now working in industry, and math movie/game nights. These events are designed to introduce students to the widespread use of mathematics in engineering and the sciences, and promote a sense of community among our students.
Our chapter's membership is primarily from the Department of Applied Mathematics, but our activities have attracted students from other science and engineering disciplines as well. All interested students, from any department, are encouraged to participate in SIAM-sponsored events.
