Master of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics

The department of Mathematics and Statistics at University of Michigan-Dearborn offers a Master of Science Degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics.

The key components of this evening program integrate applied mathematics, mathematical and statistical modeling and analysis. 

I love how small the classrooms are, how well you connect to your professors and get to know other students in your program.
— Samantha Yassine, MS In Applied And Computational Mathematics, '17

More about the program

The Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) Master's program provides graduate-level education in applied mathematics. The program develops the principles of applied mathematics and statistics, and provides students with the skills to employ those principles in industrial or scientific settings. It has three central themes: general principles and theories of applied mathematics and statistics, the construction and analysis of mathematical and statistical models, and the development and efficient execution of computational mathematical algorithms. Effective use of advanced applied mathematical techniques has become increasingly important in industrial and scientific settings as the amount of sophisticated simulation software and specialized open-source packages has greatly increased. Professionals are needed to assist engineers, scientists, and managers in the precise formulation of complex problems and in selecting the analytical methods and software appropriate for their solutions. These professionals should understand the algorithms underlying mathematical software and be able to implement additional mathematical algorithms knowledgeably and efficiently in the framework of existing software. Finally, these professionals need to interpret the results of computations for others. It is the goal of the program to equip students with these skills so that they will become professionals in the needed fields.
