  • May 24, 2009 - Math & Physics REU program at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL

    The program, entitled Differential Equations in Classical and Quantum Physics, is an interdisciplinary program between the departments of Physics and Math at the University of Central Florida which has a strong focus on various theoretical, computational, and experimental aspects of differential equations. Classical, as well Quantum Mechanical applications applications in the domain of physics will be studied.

    There are a variety of specific, well-formulated projects available for well-trained and motivated undergraduate students at all levels, many of which are likely to lead to publications in research journals. The majority of the problems are theoretical but 1-2 openings for experiment are also available. Students early in their careers, women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

    The program currently involves five Physics faculty, five Mathematics faculty, and 12 participants (undergraduate students). The program has a duration of 10 weeks (from Sunday, May 24, 2009 to Saturday, August 1, 2009, and it is enriched by a wide array of cultural, social, and educational activities. In particular, visits to the NASA Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral and the nationally known CREOL optics facilities at UCF are planned as part of the activities. Cultural visits will include the nationally known Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, the Charles Hosmer Museum of Louis Tiffany's Art Glass in Winter Park, and the nation's oldest city St. Augustine.

    Participants will:

    • receive a salary of $4,000
    • be reimbursed up to $400 for travel to Orlando from their home institution.
    • be provided free housing.
    • be given free books worth up to $300.
    • enjoy one week paid housing for vacations in Orlando (May 17-May 23).

    Capital One is seeking underclassmen to participate in the 2nd Annual Summit for Developing Leaders – a week-long program, May 18-23, 2009, designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop their analytical and problem-solving skills. The group of participants will spend the week at Capital One’s corporate headquarters in Washington, D.C. collaborating and building relationships with one another in order to solve a complex business problem. Teams will then present their findings to Capital One executives at the conclusion of the week.

    This will be an opportunity for current freshmen and sophomores for a leadership experience with a leading employer that will help develop the skills necessary for future internship and career opportunities. Application requirements include answering three essay questions and submitting your resume to the Capital One Campus Recruiting Team.

    For questions or additional information, please contact Kira Peterson. [Read about the Summit!]
