M.S. in Applied Mathematics




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
This program is intended for students with a strong interest in Applied Mathematics. Applied Mathematics is the application of classical and modern mathematical techniques to the solution of practical problems in the physical and biological sciences and engineering. The applied mathematician develops and analyzes mathematical models of physical and biological phenomena and engineering systems, interprets solutions to mathematical problems and uses the results to identify relationships, patterns, and the effects of altering one or more variables or modelling assumptions. Many of the courses in the program illustrate how mathematics can be used to predict the behaviour of physical, biological, and engineering systems.
The Master of Science in Applied Mathematics, with its areas of specialization in analysis, applied mathematics, computational methods, and mathematical biology is designed to serve the needs of students who may be interested in pursuing a doctoral degree in the mathematical, physical, or biological sciences. The program also strengthens the quantitative and analytical skills of students with a baccalaureate degree who are planning to work in industry, commerce, or education, as well as practicing engineers and others already employed in industry and commerce.
The Master of Science in Applied Mathematics requires 30 credits: 15 credits in core courses, 15 credits in an area of specialization, of which six credits are required and nine credits are electives. Students must successfully complete at least 24 of these credits at the 600-level or higher, and no more than six credits at the 500-level will be counted towards the degree. Specific course requirements depend on the area of specialization. A master's thesis or a master's project is optional.
