Independent studies with industry partnership

Goal

  • To solicit industry applications that provide rewarding independent study projects for both undergraduate and graduate students.


Make contact

Make Contact

  • Identify area industries.

  • Start with community outreach person, get in touch with a manager (keep trying until you get someone who seems interested)

  • emphasize potential benefit to the company

  • describe similar endeavors (for us, ground work was laid by very successful bio-informatics collaboration)


Have a forum

Have a forum

  • A mechanism for facilitating the building of individual relationships (for us, the “applied” combinatorics seminar).


Solicit problems

Solicit problems

  • Give industry presenters an audience of potential collaborators, particularly faculty who can see the potential in the problems and then share them with students.


Select areas

Select areas

  • Combinatorics

  • Operations Research

  • Statistics

  • Dynamical Systems

  • Computer Science

  • Biology

  • Physics

    (interdisciplinary as well as academic/industry collaboration)


Involving students

Involving students

These projects are generally

very appealing to students

  • Not busywork--someone actually cares about the results.

  • Good for work experience and resume building.

  • Potential source of non-academic letter of reference.

  • Summer job/co-op/permanent employment potential


Find funding

Find Funding

  • Lots of potential,

    (but no action yet….)


A current independent study

A Current Independent Study

  • Goal of this project is to check a chip’s design and find all occurrences of a simple pattern

  • Can be used to:

    • Find possible error spots

    • Check for already patented segments

    • Locate particular devices


The haystack

The Haystack

  • Sample layout of a chip

    (includes multiple layers)


The needle in the haystack

The Needle in the Haystack

  • Sample pattern we might look for


The input

The Input

  • The data to explain these patterns comes in the following format (.gul)

Sub graph overlay problem

Sub-Graph Overlay Problem

Two different layers/rectangles are combined into one

layer that contains three shapes; one rectangle (purple)

and two polygons (red and blue)


Overlay visualization

Overlay Visualization

Data represented visually after the algorithm is run.

After the Overlay Algorithm is run

there are no overlapping shapes.

Each distinct shape is represented by a polygon with 4 or more sides.

Algorithms is cutting edge, and not currently used for this application in industry
