Embracing the Mathematics Clinics at CGU and at the highly regarded undergraduate Claremont Colleges, the Claremont Mathematics Clinic has proven to be an effective “two-way street” between applied mathematicians at the colleges and scientists and mathematicians in industry or government laboratories in need of amplified mathematical experience.
In the 170-plus yearlong projects that have been completed by clinic teams over the last two decades, students and faculty have gained an opportunity to apply their mathematical skills to an impressive variety of real-world, current problems. Client scientists and engineers who propose projects benefit from useful, relevant solutions. Recent projects led to two patents and a computational model that outperforms the current industry standard.
Mathematics Clinic goals are to:
- provide students with experience for a career in industry or government
- provide students with experience far beyond normal university training
- sustain a curriculum attuned to real-world applications foster an ongoing dialog between faculty and scientists, bring industrial trends to campus, and alert industry to new techniques developed in academia
- allow business and industry to draw upon the intellectual and physical resources of The Claremont Colleges
- develop specific projects to be addressed by joint teams of faculty members, students, and industry
