Completed Clinic Projects


The Mathematics Clinic Program was originated in 1982 as a means to provide students with a “real-world” research experience.  Each clinic is taught as a one semester course in which students work in teams to address a problem of interest to a sponsoring company or government agency.  As an educational mechanism, the clinic gives students experience with interdisciplinary problem solving and teamwork, and strengthens written and oral technical communications skills.  In additional to fulfilling this educational role, the Mathematics Clinic Program also benefits the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences by helping to establish working relationships with local industry and government entities.  Sponsors of the clinic pay a fee, which is currently set at $18,000 per project.  However, in some cases, this fee is reduced or waived, depending on the ability of the sponsor to pay, and the educational value of the clinic project.  Since 1982, the department has conducted 60 Math Clinics with a wide variety of industrial, governmental, and academic sponsors (see Appendix A​ for a complete list of clinics conducted since 1982).  Below is a list of clinics taught since 2009.
