The Industrial Mathematics track in the Mathematical Science MS program prepares graduate students to pursue careers in industry by providing them with high quality professional training in branches of mathematics valuable to high-technology industries. This track has three components: training in the necessary mathematics to pursue a career in industrial mathematics, professional training to prepare for the environment of the industrial workplace, and a required experiential component.

**Total Credit Hours Required: 30 Credit Hours Minimum beyond the Bachelor's Degree**

## Track Prerequisites

The following courses are required as prerequisites to this track: Calculus with Analytic Geometry I, II, and III; Differential Equations; Linear and Matrix Algebra (or a course equivalent); proficiency in a computer language (C or MatLab); Advanced Calculus and Statistics.

## Application Requirements

For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the Graduate Catalog. Applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.

In addition to the general UCF graduate application requirements, applicants to this program must provide:

- One official transcript (in a sealed envelope) from each college/university attended.
- Official, competitive GRE score taken within the last five years.
- A working knowledge of undergraduate calculus, differential equations, linear algebra (or matrix theory), and maturity in the language of advanced calculus (at the level of MAA 4226).

Students who find they are not adequately prepared in one or more of the required mathematical subject areas can select appropriate courses from the undergraduate curriculum to make up such deficiencies. Such courses, unless specially approved, will not count toward the graduate degree. Applicants not qualified for regular status may be admitted initially to the university in a nondegree-seeking status. Transfer of credits from other programs will be considered on a course-by-course basis.

Meeting minimum UCF admission criteria does not guarantee program admission. Final admission is based on evaluation of the applicant's abilities, past performance, recommendations, match of this program and faculty expertise to the applicant's career/academic goals, and the applicant's potential for completing the degree.

## Financial Information

Graduate students may receive financial assistance through fellowships, assistantships, tuition support, or loans. For more information, see the College of Graduate Studies Funding website, which describes the types of financial assistance available at UCF and provides general guidance in planning your graduate finances. The Financial Information section of the Graduate Catalog is another key resource.

## Fellowship Information

Fellowships are awarded based on academic merit to highly qualified students. They are paid to students through the Office of Student Financial Assistance, based on instructions provided by the College of Graduate Studies. Fellowships are given to support a student's graduate study and do not have a work obligation. For more information, see UCF Graduate Fellowships, which includes descriptions of university fellowships and what you should do to be considered for a fellowship.
