Applied Mathematics Program

Applied mathematics involves applications of mathematical methods and techniques to explore, and describe behavior of scientific, industrial, and engineering phenomena. The applied mathematics program is interdisciplinary in spirit. It is based on principles of mathematical continuous modeling, computer simulation, linear programming, optimization, operations research, bioinformatics, numerical methods, etc. The applied mathematics program appeals to individuals who are interested in applying their mathematical interests and skills to real-world problems. Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics or its equivalent. Candidates are expected to have approved undergraduate courses in Multivariable calculus, Linear Algebra, Ordinary Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis and Advanced Calculus. It is also recommended to have some programming experience using a high level language such as C\C++, and/or a mathematical package such as Matlab and Mathematica.
In addition to the requirements of the Office of Graduate Studies, the Master of Science degree in Pure Mathematics, has three options of study, thesis (Plan I), project (Plan II), and thesis or project (Plan III).

6 credits outside the area of specialization or major

The requirement of a minimum of two out-of-discipline courses is to ensure cross-disciplinary breadth. The courses must be related to mathematics and should be chosen in a coherent way. These should be of level 5000 or higher. It is recommended that student choose these courses with the help of their advisor.

6000 or 5000 level courses not listed in the area of specialization.
6000 or 5000 level courses outside the math department.

2 credits in Seminar

Course Code Course Name
MATE 6991 Seminar I
MATE 6992 Seminar II

6 credits in Thesis

Course Code Course Name
MATE 6999 Thesis

Project option: the course and examination requirements are similar to Option I, however the 6 Thesis credits must be replaced by 6 Project credits. An oral examination on the project is also required.

No project, no thesis: the student should approve a minimum of 36 course credits:

A minimum of 27 credits at graduate level
A minimum of 21 credits in the major field
A minimum of 6 credits in courses related to, but outside the area of specialization.
