Student modelling weeks and summer camps

The early realisation of the attractiveness of mathematics-in-industry to both undergraduate and graduates has made Modelling Weeks one of the most popular MI events organised by academics; in this context "modelling" mainly means the formulation of industrial problems in mathematical terms, but emphasis is also laid on mathematical and numerical analysis and on validation. For many students, participation in a Modelling Week is their first experience of seeing mathematics being put to practical use.

The typical format is for about 5 students per mentor to work in teams on carefully prepared problems presented by the mentors on the first day and to report back on the last day.
