Natural sciences studies teach how the scientific method can be applied to the study of nature and the universe. There may be many opportunities for specialization in a specific branch such as Earth science, physics or chemistry.

Distance learning is a method of delivering education to students who are not physically present on campus. Various studies have shown that distance learning programmes can be as efficient and effective as conventional classroom programmes sometimes even better!

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

General Overview of the MS in Spatial Informatics Program

The master-of-science degree in Spatial Informatics (MSSI) provides an “all e-learning” “all coursework” degree for place-bound students that desire strong theory, computational, analytical, policy and technical foundations in geographic information science and systems. As a general rule, students may view class videos and accomplish assignments at any time throughout a week in any of the offered program courses and have the weekly opportunity (or requirement) to participate in a one to two hour “live” discussion session at a mutually convenient time for distance class members prior to due dates for weekly assignments. The program focuses on advancing knowledge about spatial information particularly with respect to concepts needed in next-generation information systems. Emphasis is placed on developing novel concepts and methods in the broad field of geographic information science for storing, accessing, analyzing, and managing spatial data, and modeling, extracting, integrating, visualizing, and communicating geospatial information. Students build on foundations in computer science, mathematics, physics, geography, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, engineering and related fields to study spatiotemporal phenomena and design intelligent spatial information systems. Spatial Informatics may be viewed as a field of study merging knowledge drawn from geographic information science, information science, cognitive science, computer science and engineering. The program is designed to meet the growing demand in society for graduates with high-level geospatial technology skills and provide a path for women and men from diverse fields to rapidly transition to information system career paths by providing them with foundation graduate...

Master of Science in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field concerned with materials and processes at the heart of a broad range of technologies. Practicing chemical engineers are the experts in charge of the development and production of diverse products in traditional chemical industries as well as many emerging new technologies. The chemical engineer guides the passage of the product from the laboratory to the marketplace, from ideas and prototypes to functioning articles and processes, from theory to reality. This requires a remarkable depth and breadth of understanding of physical and chemical aspects of materials and their production. The expertise of chemical engineers is essential to production, marketing, and application in such areas as pharmaceuticals, high-performance materials in the aerospace and automotive industries, biotechnologies, semiconductors in the electronics industry, paints and plastics, petroleum refining, synthetic fibers, artificial organs, biocompatible implants and prosthetics and numerous others. Increasingly, chemical engineers are involved in new technologies employing highly novel materials whose unusual response at the molecular level endows them with unique properties. Examples include environmental technologies, emerging biotechnologies of major medical importance employing DNA- or protein-based chemical sensors, controlled-release drugs, new agricultural products, and many others....

Master of Science in Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematics is the language of science, engineering, and fields beyond. Just as English is spoken by more non-native speakers than by native, mathematics is used daily by more non-mathematicians than by mathematicians. A Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics is an ideal career complement to nearly any practicing or aspiring researcher in quantitative domains. This has always included the physical sciences and has in the past decades increasingly included the biological and social sciences, as well. With the advent of commodity high-performance computing, applied mathematics has transcended its traditional analytical style and assumes an even greater importance and vitality in the realm of simulation. Compared with the pure mathematician, the applied mathematician is more interested in problems driven by external fields. Compared with the engineer or scientist, she is more concerned with the formulation of problems (modeling) and the nature of solutions in the abstract. Compared with the computer scientist, he is more concerned with the tradeoff of accuracy against complexity and the interpretation of results. The work of members of all these groups often overlaps, and applied mathematics is smack in the active middle. As such, it naturally offers a degree with flexible elective requirements.... [-]
