Fairmont State University has received $323,352 in grant funding from the National Science Foundation to provide an intensive undergraduate research experience in mathematics throughout the next three summers.
The project, titled Discrete and Continuous Analysis in Appalachia, will be led by Tom Cuchta, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Fairmont State, and is the first program of its kind at Fairmont State.
Fairmont State University has received $26,300 in grant funding from NASA’s Software Assurance Research Program to conduct research in cybersecurity.
The project is intended to give Fairmont State students real-world opportunities. Cybersecurity students will have the chance to gain experience performing tasks often conducted in their field. In addition, math students will have the chance to develop predictive models based on project data.
Math professors Dr. Brian Blackwood, Dr. Tom Cuchta, and Dr. Robert Niichel received a one-year grant from TMC Technologies, a subcontractor of NASA IV&V, to train students in advanced statistics and Python programming.
