Students completing a Master of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics will have obtained a broad background in the mathematical sciences, including statistics, differential equations, mathematical programming, and computational mathematics. The use of mathematical models to study practical problems is emphasized throughout the program. This program prepares students for professional employment in industry or government. By carefully selecting electives, a student can also be prepared for further studies in mathematics or to teach mathematics.
Entering students are expected to have taken courses in calculus (including multivariate calculus and differential equations), linear algebra, advanced calculus, (calculus-based) probability or statistics, and have a working knowledge of computer programming. The courses at WMU which satisfy the admission requirements are: MATH (1220 or 1700), (1230 or 1710), 2720, 3740, 2300, 5700, STAT (3620 5600 or 3640), and CS (1070, 1110, 1120, or a CS course approved by an advisor). A promising student may be admitted with some deficiencies in these admission requirements. The missing work then become an extra program requirement.
