Applied and Computational Mathematics
- What are the best red-yellow-green light timings for traffic signals in a congested urban traffic network?
- How can we analyze brainwave signals to predict a possible epileptic seizure?
- How can a bank find potential customers least likely to default on a loan?
- What are the chances of failure for a particular missile guidance system?
Today's advances in areas as diverse as biomedicine, the Internet, communications, defense technologies, and commerce all require individuals with a sound background in applied mathematics and computation. Mathematical tools make it possible to create representations of the world that facilitate analysis of a problem. The computational side provides the means for producing the numbers, graphics, rules and other output that enable designers and decision-makers to solve the problem. EP's Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) trains you in both of these essential aspects of modern analysis—mathematical and computational—preparing you to understand and then solve critical problems in a wide range of application areas. Highlights include:
- Small classes with individual attention, conveniently scheduled weekday evenings and Saturdays
- Flexibility to specialize in particular areas such as information technology and computation or simulation and modeling
- Blending of practical methods and theoretical principles for working in an applied environment
- Emphasis on computer implementation of modern algorithms
- Opportunity to pursue an independent study project
- Faculty respected internationally for their research contributions, publications, and practical experience
- No thesis required
- Master of Science (M.S.)
- Advanced Certificate for Post-Master's Study candidates
