Applied Mathematics (Ph.D.)
The IAM Ph.D. is a unique Applied Mathematics program designed to facilitate interdisciplinary research among graduate students and participating faculty. This interdisciplinary program gives students the opportunity to explore the frontier where the sciences meet cutting-edge mathematical analysis and high performance computing. Science topics include Fluid Dynamics, Plasma Physics, Space Physics, Geoscience, and Dynamical Systems.
Applicants to the Integrated Applied Mathematics Ph.D. program are expected to have a bachelor's degree in mathematics or an appropriate science or engineering field.
Please visit the Graduate School website for detailed instructions about applying to the program.
