WORKSHOP ONLY OFFERED VIRTUALLY: Computational Statistics and Data-Driven Models

Monday, April 20, 2020

9:00am

ICERM

The advancement in computing and storage capabilities of modern computational clusters fosters use of novel statistical techniques in machine learning and deep networks. Such data-driven techniques allow one to learn model features and characteristics that are difficult for mathematical methods alone to reveal. Many computational methods achieve model and complexity discovery using methods that lie at the nexus of mathematical, statistical, and computational disciplines.

Engineering Undergraduate Research Symposium

Friday, April 24, 2020

8:45am - 3:00pm

School of Engineering

Barus and Holley, 190

The Engineering Undergraduate Research Presentations are presented by senior undergraduates in BH 190 and ERC 125. In addition to maintaining an excellent academic record and presenting a summary of their research, students submit a written thesis. The thesis is reviewed by the research adviser and a second reader. Students who meet the criteria for excellence in coursework and research are granted their bachelor’s degree cum honoribus (with Honors) in their respective concentration.
