The Computational Mathematics Graduate Certificate Program (CMGC) is within our program of Master of Science in Applied Mathematics, and has been offered since 2001. A student who meets the requirements of the CMGC will receive a certificate in addition to the Master's degree.
Students who might benefit from the program are individuals who are either currently employed in a Houston area industry (oil, computer software, etc.) and are seeking a terminal professional degree to enhance their skills, or current students who are in other scientific graduate programs and wish to strengthen their future resumes by the addition of this advanced degree.
A student who wants to apply for the CMGC program should be admitted into our MSAM (Master of Science in Applied Mathematics) program.
To receive a certificate, a student must take courses satisfying the following requirements:
- Successful completion (B- or higher) of:
MATH 6370;6371: Numerical Analysis
MATH 6378: Basic Scientific Computing
- Successful completion (B- or higher) of at least 9 credit hours of courses selected from:
MATH 6366-67: Optimization,
MATH 6372: Numerical Ordinary Differential Equations,
MATH 6374: Numerical Partial Differential Equations,
MATH 6376: Numerical Linear Algebra,
MATH 7374: Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods, or a Selected Topics course in Numerical Analysis.
