The doctoral program in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics (ACMS) is designed to train researchers skilled at conducting independent research in applied mathematics, computational mathematics, or statistics. The granting of a doctoral degree is recognition that the student's mastery of the discipline and research accomplishments meet the standards recognized by the community of professionals in the field.
Breakthroughs often occur at the intersection of disciplines. At the nation’s best universities, researchers in applied and computational mathematics are collaborating with biologists, engineers, physicians, chemists, physicists, economists, and others on multifaceted problems that require mathematical modeling and computational simulation. Students trained in modeling and having experience as multidisciplinary team members have extraordinary potential. As in experimental research, graduate students have a primary role in computational and statistical analysis. The student has responsibility for carrying out the detailed steps and integrating the input from faculty in multiple areas.
