Our program is designed to equip graduates with a distinctive blend of theoretical and computational skills, for employment in industry, research laboratories and institutions of higher education. While the bulk of their coursework will be undertaken in this Department, their research topics may range across the computational aspects of a broad spectrum of disciplines.
A relatively small number of programs with the same overall goals exist in this country. Most have a similar title, although their focus varies, quite naturally, according to the resources available to them. Nonetheless, each offers students the opportunity to work within a setting wherein the ultimate goal is the solution of a scientific problem using state-of-the-art computational techniques.
Transition from MS to PhD, seamlessly
Students that excel in the MS program that decide to apply for PhD program and are accepted may seamlessly enter the doctoral studies since both share our computational mathematical and statistical sciences core.
Paths to meaningful research
The doctoral program is designed for individuals of outstanding ability who show promise as a researcher. The diverse research opportunities in our department are enhanced by the research programs of associated faculty on the Marquette campus in the sciences and engineering and Milwaukee area research laboratories and clinics.
