Applied and Computational Mathematics

Study mode:On campus Study type:Full-time Languages: English
StudyQA ranking:6192 Duration:24 months

The Master of Science Degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics is offered under both thesis and non-thesis plans. In both cases, the first year of study typically includes a theoretical core in linear and abstract algebra, real analysis, and probability and statistics. Students entering with sufficiently strong backgrounds may replace these with more advanced courses. Students also choose an area of concentration from among scientific computation, probability and statistics, applied analysis, continuous modeling and discrete mathematics/abstract algebra. An overview of modern computational issues is presented in a graduate level seminar.

During the second year, a student typically enrolls in graduate-level courses both in and out of the Department. Those students not writing a thesis take a heavier course load and participate in a research project. Degree requirements include a written examination on basic coursework and oral presentations of thesis or project work.

Financial aid is available for several students every academic year (tuition waiver and a paid TA position). Our total student body is typically 25-30 students and is very diverse. Currently we have students from eight countries (U.S.A., China, Czech Republic, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Poland, Sri Lanka), next year we will have ten countries represented, including new students from Cameroon, Korea, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
