New Doctoral Degree in Mathematics Begins Fall 2013

Monday, August 12, 2013

The first group of students admitted to the new Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics degree program at The University of Tulsa will begin their studies this fall. This distinctly interdisciplinary program will reflect the demands of the modern world, extending mathematical methods of quantitative and qualitative study to various branches of science and engineering. The curriculum will build on and enhance existing TU doctoral programs in engineering and science.

Students will be exposed to in-depth study of core mathematical areas of applied analysis, numerical analysis, probability and statistics. They will have the opportunity to focus their research on mathematical problems in an overlapping discipline such as engineering, biology, computer science, physics, medicine or other quantitative fields. Current research collaborations include boundary integral methods in engineering, mathematical modeling of infectious disease, bioinformatics and brain imaging. This dynamic and flexible approach will make graduates ideally suited for today’s employment market in government, industry and academia.

For more information about this program contact Dr. Shirley Pomeranz, Graduate Advisor.
