Department of mathematics to offer graduate certificate in applied mathematics
Starting in fall 2012, the department of mathematics will offer a graduate certificate in applied mathematics. This 12-credit interdisciplinary certificate program integrates the departments of mathematics, statistics, civil engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and industrial and manufacturing systems engineering. The certificate program will be administered within the department of mathematics and through the office of the Center for the Integration of Undergraduate, Graduate and Postdoctoral Research, or I-Center.
The objectives of this interdisciplinary certificate program focus on providing graduate students of Kansas State University with both fundamental applied mathematics training as well as experience in applying this training to relevant problems in science and engineering disciplines. The analytical and computational skills provided by this certificate program form a firm foundation for the careers of graduate students in mathematics, statistics, engineering and the sciences by preparing these students to participate in cutting-edge multidisciplinary research projects.
The structure of the certificate program has also been conceived as an opportunity for added value provided to graduate students at K-State who can further diversify their educational portfolio. Read the full description of the certificate program.
