Mathematics faculty at Kansas State University have mentored many very successful undergraduate research projects in the Center for the Integration of Undergraduate, Graduate and Postdoctoral Research (I-Center).
In addition to the I-Center's formal faculty mentoring, the Mathematical Contest in Modeling provides students with an opportunity to work with other students as a team on an open ended contest problem. This is another good introduction to mathematical research.
Our Undergraduate Topics Course Offerings at the 499, 599 and 799 levels are utilized by students wanting to explore more math or study an area of math not in our regular course offerings.
Graduate level study is also available to advanced undergraduates. Interested seniors who meet the course pre-requisites may take graduate level course work in mathematics. Students at this level can petition a faculty to mentor them in graduate level topics.
We encourage you to apply for Internships, Research Programs, and Study Abroad.
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). The NSF sponsored REU summer program provides undergraduate students from other institutions with the opportunity to visit K-State and carry out research projects under the guidance of faculty, I-Center postdoctoral fellows and I-Center graduate student scholars.
