The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, with guidance from our internationally known faculty, challenges you to solve real problems from industry and government by applying theoretical tools from mathematical and statistical disciplines. Our focus on applied problems gives you hands-on experiences that are essential for a successful career in these fields.


Financial assistance for graduate studies is available and may be in the form of Teaching Assistantships (TA), Research Assistantships (RA) or Fellowships. Generally, financial assistance is reserved for students pursuing a MS Thesis or PhD. Applicants are encouraged to apply by the deadline to receive adequate consideration for funding. Please see full submission and credential deadline information.

Degree Programs

  • Master of Science - Computational and Applied Mathematics
  • Doctor of Philosophy - Computational and Applied Mathematics


The department offers graduate programs in two main areas of concentration: applied mathematics and applied statistics. Members of the department are actively involved in the Center for Wave Phenomena (CWP), the Center for Automation, Robotics and Distributed Intelligence (CARDI), and the Center for Assessment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (CA-STEM). These and other interdisciplinary activities give students many opportunities to participate in engineering and applied science projects on campus. Research in Applied Statistics is focused in the following areas:

Applied Statistics

  • Geostatistics
  • Multivariate Statistics
  • Spatial Statistics
  • Nonparametric Statistics
  • Statistical Inverse Problems
  • Stochastic Models for Environmental Science
  • Survival Analysis
  • Time Series
  • Wavelet Applications
