The SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) chapter at the University of Utah aims to unite students in all fields interested in applied mathematics. We have several social and academic events which foster interaction between students of varying disciplines and with professionals in industry.

The SIAM chapter is open to both undergraduate and graduate students from any department. Students are encouraged and welcomed to participate in SIAM-sponsored events even if they are not members.
