Additional program requirements:


  • Official transcripts from all attended institutions


  • GRE test scores (institutional code: 5490)
    • Prior to July 1, 2011: composite score of 1000 for verbal and quantitative
    • After July 1, 2011: 148 verbal and 156 quantitative 


    Students should be aware that admission into any graduate program is granted on a competitive basis. Students meeting minimum requirements may be denied admission based on such factors as program capacity or academic discretion. Likewise, students may be considered for admission as an exception if stated admissions criteria are not met.



    Program Overview


    Because today’s businesses depend upon your ability to analyze and interpret data you need the knowledge and technical skills to make decisions that stand up to scrutiny from your supervisors, clients, and customers. Graduate study in applied mathematics can provide you  the tools you need to be confident that your projects are backed by proven methodology, a solid plan, and strong data-driven assessments.


    As a student in the Applied Mathematics Certificate program, you can increase your understanding of mathematical models while you train on industry-standard software packages such as Maple, Matlab, and Mathematica. The program blends practical and theoretical analysis and will give you the tools and knowledge you need to handle and analyze data/modeling problems for your organization.

    Students must possess graduate standing in order to enroll in the Applied Mathematics Certificate Program. In order to receive the Certificate in Applied Mathematics, students must have an average GPA in certificate courses of 3.0 and no grade below a "C.” 



    Special Notes about the Program

    Any graduate or post-graduate student wanting to enrich his/her data-analysis and analytical abilities and gain a greater knowledge of mathematical methods and analysis can apply for the certificate program. Each of the Applied Mathematics courses can be used to meet requirements for the MS degree in Mathematical Sciences. In addition, those graduates or post-graduates holding technical degrees might want to further develop their own career opportunities with an Applied Mathematics certificate and perhaps ultimately with an MS in Mathematical Sciences.
