Masters Programs

WPI’s master’s degree programs in the mathematical sciences prepare students for leadership roles in business, technology, healthcare, engineering, and more. Working alongside WPI’s accomplished faculty and researchers, our graduate students are exposed to a learning experience that is hands-on, with real-world impact. WPI’s Mathematical Sciences department offers five master’s degree programs:

Master of Science in Applied Mathematics places an emphasis on areas with the highest demand in applications: numerical methods and scientific computation, mathematical modeling, discrete mathematics, mathematical materials science, optimization, and operations research. Students have a choice of completing their master’s thesis or project in cooperation with one of the department’s established industrial partners. Learn more... 

Master of Science in Applied Statistics gives students the knowledge and experience to tackle the challenges of stastical design, analysis and control likely to be encountered in business, industry or academia. Students will become familiar with the theory underlying modern statistical methods, to provide breadth in diverse areas of statistics, and to give students practical experience through extensive application of statistical theory to real problems. Learn more... 

Master of Science in Financial Mathematics, a professional MS degree program, offers an efficient, practice-oriented track to prepare students for quantitative careers in the financial industry, including banks, insurance companies, and investment and securities firms. The program equips students with expertise in quantitative financial modeling and the computational methods, complemented by studies in financial management, information technology and/or computer science. Learn more... 

Master of Science in Industrial Mathematics, a professional MS degree program, prepares students for successful careers in industry, as problem-solvers, capable of moving from task to task within an organization. This program aims at developing the analytical, modeling and computational skills needed by mathematicians who work in industrial environments. The program culminates in an industrial professional master’s project that involves the solution of a concrete, real-world problem originating in industry. Learn more... 

Master of Mathematics for Educators (MME) is designed to allow primary, secondary or junior college instructors of mathematics the opportunity to conveniently and economically earn an advanced degree that truly relates to their career, while still retaining their teaching position. Aside from coursework in both pure and applied mathematics, students develop materials that may be used in their classes. Learn more...
