Undergraduate summer research program?

  1. Feb 25, 2012 #1
    im currently studying civil engineering at your typical technical college. right now im taking a course in differential equations and i guess you can say i'm relatively interested in it. ive been toying with the idea of minoring in applied mathematics but i guess thats another story.

    over the summer the college is offering a summer undergraduate research program for mathematics, the email i received doesnt really say much about the program besides the fact its ten weeks long and that my research problem must be clearly stated in a proposal and that it must contain significance and originality.

    now my question is, what can they really expect from an undergraduate student who has just taken what i guess to be a course on the fundamentals of differential equations? has anyone else done anything like this or have any idea what i can expect?
