Institute for Mathematical Innovation

14 students awarded an IMI Undergraduate Research Internship  

4 May 2017

The Institute for Mathematical Innovation (IMI) is pleased to announce this year's cohort of students who have been awarded an IMI Undergraduate Research Internship.
 
Research internships are a fantastic opportunity for students to gain research experience and get a feel for what it is like studying for a PhD.  

All students studying a degree comprising an element of mathematics, statistics or data science can apply for an IMI research internship and this year the programme has attracted students and supervisors spanning five different department at the University of Bath.

Four of this year's interns are funded by Dr Kit Yates' BBSRC STARS grant and two students are funded by SAMBa.
