Mathematics has always been crucial to many different forms of scientific inquiry. Now, more than ever, advances in scientific research are found to benefit from the formulation and analysis of quantitative mathematical models. Successful analysis of a model leads to a better understanding of the role and interaction of key components in the system being studied and provides a predictive tool for improving system performance. The sequence of model development, analysis, simulation, and interpretation of data demands the application of sophisticated modern and classical mathematical methods. With society's growing use of mathematically oriented innovation, career opportunities for applied mathematicians are better than ever
Why study Applied Mathematics at NJIT?
Active participation in the MS program by more than 40 NJIT mathematical sciences faculty produces a stimulating learning environment. Many of the program faculty have earned international reputations as a result of the breadth and depth of their accomplishments. The MS in Applied Mathematics program offers students a unique opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field, and to encounter the vital process of applied research - much of it sponsored by government agencies and industry. Through activities, such as a regular colloquium series and seminars, developed in close collaboration between the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics, students are exposed to the latest innovations in the mathematical sciences
Who should enroll?
The program is intended for motivated students with a strong interest in mathematics, who enjoy the challenges of problem-solving and are interested in a career in the mathematical sciences or a related field. It is designed to meet the needs of those intending to pursue a doctoral degree in the mathematical or related sciences but is also well-suited to students who want to expand their mathematical skills for careers in industry, commerce, or education. The program will benefit practicing engineers and high technology workers seeking to enhance their expertise in applied mathematics. The degree can be completed on a part-time basis, but participation on a full-time basis is encouraged.
