Industrial Mathematics Option

The objective of the Master's program in Industrial Mathematics is to enable students to acquire the fundamentals of applied mathematics in areas of classical and numerical analysis, differential equations and dynamical systems, and probability and statistics. At the same time, the connection of these fields to modeling of physical, biological, engineering, and financial phenomena will be stressed by requiring courses outside the Department. Students are to obtain practical experience in mathematical modeling and analysis during an internship or industrial project that will culminate in a thesis. Emphasis is placed on developing mathematical skills that government and industrial employers value.

Complete information on admission policy and graduation requirements are available in the Graduate Bulletin (Mathematics).

Students must have an advisor from the start of the program who must approve all courses and the industrial mathematics thesis.
