Graduate Studies

Graduate Education is a major focus of CRSC faculty and staff. Opportunities for graduate students range from classes, seminars and workshops in applied mathematics to the Industrial Applied Math Program and research fellowships. Here's what one graduate said about her experiences:

"I highly recommend the graduate programs and courses in the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University for their diversity and academic quality. However, it was my experience through the CRSC and exposure to interdisciplinary research with scientists in industry that helped me develop the professional skills and rigor needed for research in academics and industry."

Mathematics Modeling Course


A 'hands on' experimental experience which will prepare students for summer internships in interdisciplinary projects. Actual industrial and governmental projects are studied and students are exposed to all aspects of research including modeling, experimental design, data collection, simulation, and inverse problems. Topics include: size-structured population models, thermal conduction, structural modeling (vibration analysis of beams and plates), acoustics and structural acoustics, fluid flow and gas dynamics, and electromagnetics (pulse interrogation of materials and magnetorheological fluids).
