Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics
Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Mathematics
The doctoral program in mathematics is designed to produce a mathematician with a broad background in analysis and a strong field of specialization in applied analysis, modeling or numerical analysis and scientific computing. This combination of training will prepare the student for a career in a variety of areas, such as government or industrial research, or academic research and teaching. Doctoral graduates have the necessary experience in areas of application to be able to work successfully with other members of multidisciplinary research teams. Graduates also have the critical ability to think independently and analytically. They are able to make significant contributions to knowledge in their chosen fields of inquiry.
A preliminary program of study should be prepared by the student and advisor during the first semester of graduate studies. The final doctoral program of study must be approved by the student’s advisory committee and program chair.
