[2]: The Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects (G-RIPS) Program provides an opportunity for high-achieving graduate-level students to work in teams on a real-world research project proposed by a sponsor from industry or the public sector. Each G-RIPS team is comprised of four international students (two from the US and two from European universities), an academic mentor, and an industrial sponsor. The research problem is always a real problem of serious interest to the sponsor and that offers a stimulating challenge to students.

Most of these projects involve both analytic and computational work. The students, with direction from their academic mentor and industrial sponsor, will learn about the problem, master the latest analytical and computational approaches and techniques to solve it. At the end of the program, the teams will present the results of their work and prepare a final report. English is the only language required for participation.
