New Opportunities in Applied Mathematics. A Report from Clemson University and Washington State University.
Clemson Univ., SC.; Washington State Univ., Pullman.
This report describes two programs which were developed with National Science Foundation support to enable graduates of the program to function in roles traditionally assigned to physicists, engineers, chemists, and computer scientists but which are primarily mathematical in nature. Graduates of traditional programs in mathematics have had little experience or incentive in applying their mathematical training to real world problems and thus institutions other than colleges have been hesitant to have them. To combat this problem, a graduate program in applied mathematics was developed at Clemson University and Washington State University. The programs at both institutions are described, including course descriptions and formal degree requirements as well as examples of Masters of Science projects. The report closes with brief bibliographies concerning mathematics education and mathematical modeling. (TG)
