A SIAM student chapter resides at one or more colleges or universities, and ideally involves students and faculty members from different departments. The purpose of a chapter is to generate interest in applied mathematics and computational science by providing students opportunities to:
- Share ideas and enthusiasm with fellow students and faculty from any relevant department on campus
- Explore career opportunities
- Make contacts that will last a lifetime
- Develop leadership skills
