Engineering-Applied Mathematics

Engineering-Applied Mathematics

This is a coordinated program between the College of Engineering and the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics. It is designed to train students in the formulation, analysis, and solution of mathematical models in a variety of application areas. It also emphasizes interdisciplinary research and teamwork. The program addresses the State and Regional needs for students with advanced training in interdisciplinary research, and prepares students for employment in government agencies, industry, and universities.


Admission Requirements

  • Hold a bachelors or master's degree in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics (with 3.0 cumulative GPA) or a bachelor's or master's degree in Engineering from an ABET accredited program (with 3.0 cumulative GPA)
  • GRE (minimum score of 1150 required)
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Statement of purpose

Application Deadline

Applications to the doctoral program in Engineering-Applied Mathematics are accepted on a rolling basis.


Additional Information

Upon gaining full admission to the Ph.D. program, the student will meet with an applied mathematics advisor from the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics to discuss issues relating to fundamental courses, transfer credits, and degree requirements. Students without a bachelor's or master's degree in engineering may be required to complete fundamental course work in engineering in addition to the other degree requirements.

Assistantship/Scholarship Information

All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.

Financial Aid Information

Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.

Tuition and Fees

Current tuition and fees schedules can be found through the Office of Student Accounts.
