This is the second in a two-course sequence (EN.625.801 and EN.625.802) designed for students in the master’s program who wish to work with a faculty advisor to conduct significant, original independent research in the field of applied and computational mathematics. (Each course is one semester.) A sequence may be used to fulfill two courses within the 700-level course requirements for the master’s degree; only one sequence may count toward the degree. For the sequence 625.801 and 625.802, the student will produce a technical paper for submission to a journal or to a conference with accompanied refereed proceedings. The intent of the research is to expand the body of knowledge in the broad area of applied mathematics, with the research leading to professional-quality documentation. Students with a potential interest in pursuing a doctoral degree at JHU, or another university, should consider enrolling in either this sequence or EN.625.803 and EN.625.804 to gain familiarity with the research process. (Doctoral intentions are not a requirement for enrollment.) Course Note(s): The course EN.625.800 Independent Study may not be used towards the ACM M.S. if the student also wishes to count EN.625.801–802 towards the M.S. degree. A full description of the guidelines (which includes the list of approved ACM research faculty) and the approval form can be found at https://ep.jhu.edu/current-students/student-forms/.
