Program Description:

Computational and applied mathematics encompasses a broad spectrum of mathematical fields and computational methods, including:

-Numerical Analysis
-Operations Research
-Differential Equations
-Scientific Computation

Graduates with degrees in computational and applied mathematics are in demand in industry, government research laboratories, and academia, where they often join with physical and biological scientists, engineers, and computer scientists to form teams. Such interdisciplinary teams represent the modern approach to dealing with complex problems whose solutions require mathematical and scientific skills. Our alumni have successful careers in industry, academia, and national research laboratories.

Admission to graduate study in computational and applied mathematics is open to qualified students holding bachelor's or master's degrees (or their equivalent) in engineering, mathematics, or the physical, biological, mathematical, or behavioral sciences. Graduate study in computational and applied mathematics pursues the components of the undergraduate curriculum in greater breadth and depth. Department faculty evaluates the previous academic record and credentials of each applicant individually.
