The Student Chapter
The Simon Fraser University Chapter of SIAM was founded on September 14, 2011 with the objective to generate interest in applied mathematics and computational science by providing students opportunities to:
- Share ideas and enthusiasm with fellow students and faculty from any relevant department on campus.
- Explore career opportunities.
- Make contacts that will last a liftime.
- Develop leadership skills.
SIAM student chapters exist to generate interest in applied mathematics and computational science. SIAM encourages interdisciplinary participation by students and faculty from many departments on campus, including math, applied math, mathematical sciences, statistics, computer science, engineering, economics, physics, and other sciences. The activities of student chapters can include lunch discussions about career opportunities in applied math and computational science, lectures given by guest speakers, team projects such as undergraduate competitions, social functions, and field trips to industrial laboratories or SIAM section meetings.
