Computational Mathematics applied to management science
Program overview (applied and computational mathematics)
The ideas of applied mathematics pervade several applications in a variety of businesses and industries as well as government. Sophisticated mathematical tools are increasingly used to develop new models, modify existing ones, and analyze system performance. This includes applications of mathematics to problems in management science, biology, portfolio planning, facilities planning, control of dynamic systems, and design of composite materials. The goal is to find computable solutions to real-world problems arising from these types of situations.
The master of applied and computational mathematics provides students with the capability to apply mathematical models and methods to study various problems that arise in industry and business, with an emphasis on developing computable solutions that can be implemented. The program offers options in discrete mathematics, dynamical systems, and scientific computing. Students complete a thesis, which includes the presentation of original ideas and solutions to a specific mathematical problem.
The personal statement should address a reasons why computational mathematics is necessary to meet my career goals. One of the reasons is that I want to work identifying problems in organizations to improve the decision making and arrive to the most effective solutions. Also, I want to mentor students and encourage them to study science majors. Furthermore, I have been passionate about math from an early age, and I am dedicated, motivated, and posses the problem solving and critical thinking skills to excel at it.
The personal statement must have a good hook and be concise.
I studied Computer and Electrical Engineering.
I was a mathematics and programming tutor for 1 year and 3 month.
(This is an important reason why I want to master in Applied Computational Mathematics)
