The ideas of applied mathematics pervade several applications in a variety of businesses and industries, as well as government. Sophisticated mathematical tools are increasingly used to develop new models, modify existing ones and analyze system performance. This includes applications of mathematics to problems in management science, biology, portfolio planning, facilities planning, control of dynamic systems and design of composite materials. The goal is to find computable solutions to real-world problems arising from these types of situations.
The School of Mathematical Sciences offers an interdisciplinary master of science degree in applied mathematics. The objective of the program is to provide students with the capability to apply mathematical models and methods to study various problems that arise in industry and business, with an emphasis on developing computable solutions that can be implemented. Since this is an interdisciplinary program, students have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of courses.
