Applied and Computational Mathematics Program Description
The Post-Master’s Certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics will provide students pursuing careers in applied and computational mathematics with a course of study that balances theory with practice, giving them the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their effectiveness in a complex and rapidly evolving technological environment. The program is designed not only to broaden and strengthen students’ understanding of the traditional fundamentals but also to introduce them to contemporary applications and technologies. Graduates will be prepared for specialized jobs involving all aspects of mathematical and computational techniques that are fundamentally important and practically relevant in all areas of science and engineering. Applicants who have already completed a master’s degree in applied and computational mathematics or a closely related technical discipline are eligible to apply for the Post-Master’s Certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics. The certificate must be completed within three years.
