Program Information


Computers and computational methods play an important role in all fields of science and engineering. Thus, the above curriculum focuses on the mathematical development, analysis, and application of numerical methods. Surrounding this main focus are courses that build mathematical expertise in analysis, modeling, and applications. This curriculum also allows the flexibility to pursue courses in computer science and other fields of science and engineering.

Students should note that the mathematics options listed above are any 4000-level or higher course from the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The computation option is either MATH 4820 or MATP 4820. The CS options are any 2000-level or higher courses from Computer Science (i.e., courses coded CSCI and not cross listed with any math course).

It is also recommended that students take PHYS 1200 and CSCI 1200.

Footnotes


  1. The courses BIOL 1010 and PHYS 1100 may be taken in any semester they are offered and in either order.
