The University of Central Florida offers a Master of Science degree in Mathematical Science and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Mathematics. Both degrees are intended to provide a broad base in applied and industrial mathematics.
The master's program offers a track in Industrial Mathematics to prepare graduate students to pursue careers in industry by providing them with high quality professional training in branches of mathematics that are valuable to high-technology industry. Graduates of the program will be able to pursue a wide variety of industrial jobs at the local and national levels.
Students in the doctoral program specialize in one of many different aspects of mathematics, including propagation through random media, nonlinear waves, graph theory, operator algebra and frame theory, tomography, approximation theory, differential equations, nonlinear dynamics and mathematical physics, as well as abstract algebra, real and complex analysis, and probability theory. In response to this wide variety of interests, the program offers more flexibility in the composition of the core as well as the qualifying examination. The program is comprehensive with opportunities for prospective students to pursue research in a variety of disciplines.
International Student Requirements:
In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
