Non-Thesis option

  1. Requires a minimum of 36 credit hours, at least 18 of which must be in mathematics.
  2. There must be a 16 credit hours core of mathematics courses* selected from the following:
    • MATH 609 (Numerical Analysis) or MATH 610 (Numerical Methods in Partial Differential Equations)
    • At least four of the following:
      • MATH 606 (Probability I)
      • MATH 607 (Real Variables I)
      • MATH 610** (Numerical Methods in Partial Differential Equations)
      • MATH 613 (Graph Theory)
      • MATH 615 (Introduction to Classical Analysis)
      • MATH 619 (Applied Probability)
      • MATH 630 (Combinatorics)
      • MATH 639 (Iterative Techniques)

      • MATH 642 (Analysis for Applications II)
      • MATH 647 (Mathematical Modeling)
      • MATH 651 (Optimization I)
      • MATH 652 (Optimization II)
      • MATH 658 (Applied Harmonic Analysis)
  3. There must be a minimum of 6 credit hours of mathematics, statistics, or computer science electives. Suggested outside courses include:
    • CSCE 602 (Object-oriented programming, development and software engineering)
    • CSCE 606 (Software Engineering)
    • CSCE 608 (Database Systems)
    • STAT 608 (Regression Analysis)
    • STAT 610 (Theory of Statistics- Distribution Theory)
    • STAT 611 (Theory of Statistics- Inference)
    • STAT 614 (Probability for Statistics)
    • STAT 615 (Stochastic Processes)
    • STAT 621 (Advanced Stochastic Processes)
  4. There must be a minimum of 12 credit hours of electives in areas outside of the Mathematics Department. Typically these must come from the areas of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Suggested courses include:
    • ISEN 618 (Stochastic Processes in the Assurance Sciences)
    • ISEN 619 (Analysis and Prediction)
    • ISEN 622 (Linear Programming)
    • ISEN 623 (Non-linear and Dynamic Programming)
    • ISEN 624 (Applied distribution and Queuing Theory)
    • ISEN 625 (Simulation Methods and Applications)
    • ISEN 626 (Model Building and Applications of Operations Research)
    • ISEN 629 (Engineering Optimization)
    • ISEN 668 (Integer Programming)

  5. This leaves 2 of 36 credit hours to be chosen in consultation with the student's advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize the Professional Internship Course, MATH 684, as a math elective. Up to 5 hours of internship can be listed on a non-thesis degree plan. The Graduate Program Office and the campus Career Center will help students indentify suitable internship opportunities.

*Substitions for core courses may be allowed in special cases but require approval of the Graduate Office.

**Assumes MATH 609 is used to fulfill the previous requirement.
