AFIT is primarily a graduate school for selected U.S. and foreign military officers, and for equivalent-rank Department of Defense (DOD) civilian personnel. For all AFIT programs, admission and selection of students are handled through appropriate USAF directives. There is no charge for tuition, since our students are granted a "scholarship" to attend AFIT through their respective services.
This program is conducted by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and provides a comprehensive and balanced education in analytical, statistical and computational mathematics necessary for the applied mathematician to understand mathematical theory and its manifold applications in science, engineering, and society. The program provides a sound development of existing mathematical and statistical theory as well as its practical implications.
