Master of Science in Applied Mathematics
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), states that there are new mathematical needs emerging in science, engineering, industry and technology. Additionally, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the growth projection of employment for mathematicians is 23 percent from 2012 to 2022.
Why our program?
Innovation through mathematical problem solving is needed in every field imaginable. These areas include: physics, engineering, business, economics technology, healthcare, weather and biology. CBU’s Master of Science in Applied Mathematics curriculum is designed to help students identify challenging real-world problems in these fields, formulate a mathematical model that effectively addresses the problems and use models to obtain real-world solutions.
The program integrates a faith-based perspective into a foundation of mathematical theory and concepts. The main course sequence focuses on the topics of differential equations, complex and numerical analysis, scientific computing and linear programming, applied statistics and math biology.
Students will also be able to communicate the results of their research and application through reports and presentations. With these skills, graduates will be able to significantly contribute to a competitive work force or pursue a PhD program in applied mathematics or a related field.
