Applied mathematics deals with a wide range of disciplines in different areas, as science, technology, business and industry. Applied mathematics aims to solve practical problems using mathematical methods and models, such as materials analysis and processing, weather forecasting, financial services, network management and many more tasks. Applied mathematics can include mathematical disciplines such as mathematics of engineering, linear programming, continuous modeling, numerical analysis, statistics, information theory, game theory, etc.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Mathematics is awarded on successful completion of 60 credits of postgraduate mathematics study. The certificate course is a valuable qualification in itself or it can be the first qualification in a programme of mathematics study leading to a postgraduate diploma or an MSc.
Applied mathematics and statistics is an integral part of emerging fields such as computational medicine/biology, language processing, information security, and computer science. In today’s data-intensive world, it is used to answer questions and solve problems in areas as diverse as finance, government and law, medicine, and national defense.
This program provides opportunities for motivated and highly qualified students to undertake advanced study and to produce a research-based dissertation. Students will develop appropriate research skills and specialist area knowledge that will enhance their career prospects or allow them to proceed to further appropriate higher degree studies.
These guidelines are intended to help familiarize graduate students in the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Mathematics program with the policies governing this degree program. All the guidelines apply to both the on-campus M.Sc. degree and the on-line M.Sc. degree, unless otherwise specified.
This academic program, for students registered in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, emphasizes applied mathematics research in nonlinear dynamics, fluid mechanics, and scientific computation, with a current emphasis on geophysical, biophysical, and plasma physics applications.
The Master of Science in Space Studies program is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of space, including the historical, political, economic, legal, commercial, scientific and technical issues that make up this complex field of study.
Building from a core in applied statistics, the MS in Analytics provides students with advanced analytical training to develop their ability to draw insights from big data, including: data collection, preparation and integration; statistical methods and modeling; and other sophisticated techniques for analyzing complex data.
The Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics offers a select group of highly qualified students the opportunity to obtain a thorough knowledge of branches of mathematics indispensable to science and engineering applications, including numerical analysis and other computational methods.
The objective of the University Master in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics (MFMA) is to provide an advanced training, specially oriented to graduate students aiming to enter later in a Doctorate program.
The Master’s program in Mathematics leads students to achieve a deep and solid understanding of higher mathematics. It is designed to encourage analytical thinking, creativity and comprehensive understanding combined with ability to apply mathematical methods to real-life problems.
INTO George Mason University’s Graduate Pathway program in Operations Research will prepare you to enter the second year of a Master of Science in Operations Research at George Mason University.
The Department of Statistics offers Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Statistics. The graduate program is structured around three core course sequences that introduce students to the science of data: theoretical statistics, data analysis, and statistical computing. This balance reflects the scale and complexity of problems that statisticians are now routinely called to address. As with the undergraduate program, the interest of faculty members in various application areas weaves itself throughout the graduate offerings.
