Undergraduate Colloquium (Organized by MENTOR)

When: Thursday, March 7, 5:30PM.
Where: AH 108

Speaker: Mircea Ionescu, OneSubsea (a Schlumberger company)

Title: Mathematics for all Markets

Abstract: The use of mathematical models in various fields such as engineering applications, financial instruments and contracts, risk and decision making, insurance, optimization and others has seen a massive proliferation since the advancement of numerical methods and distributed computing power. Accurately modeling a highly complex and nonlinear process or event is a difficult task that requires good judgment in keeping a healthy balance between simplifications and approximations needed to solve the model and capturing the essential response/behavior of the said process or event. The practitioner of mathematical modeling is constantly faced with this task of choosing which aspects of the process are most important and which can be neglected in order to arrive at a solution that best describes the problem to be solved and to interpret and validate the model results.

This talk will provide some examples of practical engineering problems encountered when designing oil and gas subsea equipment in which mathematical modeling was extensively applied to verify and validate the operational limits of the subsea equipment. Examples of mathematical models from other science fields such as biomedical engineering, finance, and gaming theory will also be briefly presented. Work opportunities in the industry/academia will be discussed and a list of suggested readings that touch on the subject of mathematical modeling will be provided.

Intro to LaTeX (Flyer)

When: Tuesday, February 26, 5:30PM-6:30PM.
Where: PGH 646

We will go over the basics of LaTeX, assuming no prior knowledge. You will learn how to create documents, use pre-built packages, and create professional-looking mathematical documents. Please join us if you don't have much prior experience with LaTeX, or just want to get a better understanding of how it works.

Game Night & Social (Flyer)

When: Monday, 02/11/19, 6:00PM-8:30PM.
Where: The Nook

We are hosting our first social event for this semester. You can stay as early or as late as you want. There will be board games, but feel free to bring your own. You are always welcome to bring a friend along with you.

First General Meeting (Flyer)

When: Tuesday, 01/29/19, 5:30PM-7:00PM.
Where: PGH646A

With this meeting we would like to initiate the spring semester 2019. With this meeting we would like to give students that are considering joining PME an opportunity to learn more about us and our activities. We will discuss the standards and significance of membership in Pi Mu Epsilon. This meeting should provide the necessary information to initiates, looking to become active this semester. We will also provide donuts.

This event is open to everyone. Feel free to share this announcement with others.

More events will be posted here as they are announced.
