Industrial Mathematics

The Professional Science Master's Degree in Industrial Mathematics is designed to prepare students for a career in industry. The curriculum combines a business and experiential component with advanced course work in one of the three available emphases. Requirements for admission to the program include the completion of a bachelor's degree with a GPA of 3.00 or higher and successful completion of the following university-level courses: single and multi variable calculus (800:060, 800:061, 800:062), linear algebra (800:076), an introduction to statistics (800:072), and a course in computer programming (810:030, 810:036, 810:051, or equivalent).

 Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission/default.aspx.

The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

This major is a non-thesis program. Three emphases are available: the Actuarial Science Emphasis; the Continuous Quality Improvement Emphasis; and the Mathematical Computing and Modeling Emphasis; and. A minimum of 34-35 hours is required. A minimum of 12 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required.

No comprehensive examination is required for this non-thesis option.

Each emphasis requires completion of the business and experiential component, the seminar experience, the Mathematics core, the core for the chosen emphasis (Actuarial Science, or Continuous Quality Improvement, or Mathematical Computing and Modeling), and 9 hours of electives that do not duplicate course work chosen to meet the chosen emphasis (Actuarial Science, or Continuous Quality Improvement, or Mathematical Computing and Modeling) core requirement.
