Johns Hopkins Engineering recently announced that students can complete its master's degree program in applied and computational mathematics online.

The program prepares students to be leaders in defense technology, business, public policy, and biomedicine—just a few of the industries that are increasingly incorporating sophisticated mathematical algorithms and analysis into their technologies.

Instructors are practicing statisticians and mathematicians who use Johns Hopkins Engineering's unique online platform to blend real-world exercises with analysis of fundamental theory.

We've offered online courses as part of our curriculum for some time, said James C. Spall, chair of the Applied and Computational Mathematics program at Johns Hopkins Engineering. But today we're excited to offer students around the world the opportunity to finish the degree 100 percent online if they choose to.

To earn the master's degree, students must complete ten courses in topics such as matrix theory, data mining, and Monte Carlo methods. Now, students can choose to take all of their courses online, on-site, or by constructing a hybrid schedule of both online and on-site courses.

The Applied and Computational Mathematics program is holding an online information session Thursday, October 19, 2017, from 7 to 8 p.m. ET.
