## The Industrial Mathematics Program

**Master of Science Degree in Mathematics with Emphasis
in
Industrial Mathematics**

Industry and business provide many areas for the application
of
advanced mathematics, and many possibilities for
mathematicians to make
signficant contributions. New Mexico Tech offers a program to
prepare
students for these opportunities. The requirements are

- Basic mathematical background - Math 410, 411 Numerical
Analysis;
Math 437, 438 Differential Equations; Math 483 Statistics;
or their
equivalents (catalog)
- Modeling courses - Math
430
Mathematical Modeling; Math
530
Modeling Case Studies
- Core industrial mathematics courses - two of the
following: Math
511
Numerical Analysis; Math
518
Nonlinear Optimization; Math
532
Perturbation Methods; Math
535
Mathematical Physics; Math
587
Time Series
- A concentration of four related
courses, at least two at the 500 level (beyond two in
requirement 3)
and at least two in another department. The courses to
satisfy this
requirement must be approved by the Industrial Mathematics
group.
- Each student spends one term, usually summer, in an
internship in
an industrial position. This internship is arranged through
the Industrial Mathematics group,
and should
involve mathematical modeling, computation and analysis.
Some possible
internship positions are listed below.
- Math 590 Independent Study or Math 591 Thesis; and
sufficient
courses to fulfill the general requirements of the Master of
Science
degree.
