Successful analysis of complex models illuminates the role and interaction of key components in the system being studied and provides essential tools for evaluating and improving system performance. The sequence of model development, analysis, simulation and interpretation of data demands application of advanced mathematical methods at a level that often requires the knowledge and skills acquired during doctoral study.

Who should enroll?

The program is intended for highly motivated and able students with a strong interest in mathematics and its applications, who are interested in the challenges of research and a career in the mathematical sciences or a related field. The degree can be completed on a part-time basis, but participation on a full-time basis is strongly encouraged.
