The graduate program in applied mathematics is interdisciplinary in nature. A plan of study may include up to a four-course concentration in computer science, engineering, or business for students with appropriate backgrounds. The primary objective of the program in applied mathematics is to train students for professional work in the applications of mathematics. The program provides a background in mathematical, numerical and statistical analyses, and students will gain valuable experience in modeling and computation. Students have the opportunity to work on a semester- or year-long project, the Mathematics Clinic project.
The program strives to offer an individualized plan of study that meets the needs and career goals of the student. This is achieved by offering a core of courses blending analysis, linear algebra, modeling and numerical analysis in the Department of Mathematics. The student, with department approval, will select a four-course concentration of courses. This area of concentration can be outside the Department of Mathematics.
