Meeting the Demands of Emerging Technologies
WPI’s Professional Master's Degree in Industrial Mathematics gives students the knowledge and skills needed for becoming successful professionals, solving real-world problems in today’s industrial environments.
The demand for professionals capable of modeling and simulating emerging technologies has dramatically increased in recent years, as new technologies have been developed. Modeling, analysis, and computations performed by mathematicians working with other professionals can provide technical advantages and cost savings, important for a company's competitive edge. Industry mathematicians work most commonly in multidisciplinary teams and cover a wide range of industrial areas, including:
- Aerospace & Transportation
- Software Development
- Communications, Electronics
- Cryptology & Cryptography
- Weather Modeling & Prediction
The Industrial Mathematics Professional Master's program puts an emphasis on modeling and computational techniques, culminating in a hands-on project that involves the solution of a concrete, real-world problem originating in industry. The department, through the industrial connections of the faculty affiliated with the Center for Industrial Mathematics and Statistics, may help students identify and select suitable industrial internships and potential employers.
Detailed degree requirements and course descriptions are provided in the Mathematical Sciences section of the Graduate Course Catalog.
Admission to the program follows the general admission process for graduate programs at WPI. A strong background in mathematics, which should include courses in advanced analysis, linear algebra and differential equations, is assumed.
