Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation Program - University of Maryland

Applied Mathematics & Statistics, and Scientific Computation

Scientific Computation Applications Courses

Applications Courses are intended to expose students to computational methods and mathematical modeling as may be relevant to their science discipline. These courses will be selected from a list of courses offered by the various Departments and approved by the Graduate Committee for the Program. The content of approved courses must be primarily in mathematics or computational science. Each student's Study Advisory Committee, working with the student, will recommend a set of Applications courses.

Like the core science courses, Applications Courses should be selected with advice from the Departments that teach the courses. Students planning their programs should make sure the courses they choose are being taught regularly. The following examples illustrate courses that might be appropriate for the Scientific Computation program.
