Use mathematics to understand and predict the world
Learn how mathematical modeling applies math and computation to address real-world challenges. Gain a solid foundation in the development and application of mathematical models through this pioneering doctoral program at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Through extensive research, you will develop expertise in using the tools of mathematical modeling, contribute in creative and innovative ways to solving complex interdisciplinary problems, carry out independent research, and learn to communicate effectively with researchers in other fields.
Rochester Institute of Technology College of Science
Essential to Dozens of Disciplines
Researchers use mathematical models in all STEM disciplines, including medical sciences, materials science, defense, social sciences, business and finance, and economics.
With a Ph.D. in mathematical modeling, you will become an expert in formulating application-field problems mathematically, analyzing results, integrating data with models, devising and implementing algorithms, and communicating results to others.
Our five application domains—biomedicine, earth systems modeling, finance, data analytics and simulation of complex systems, and network analysis—are interdisciplinary by nature and foster collaboration with other researchers.
To achieve your goals, you will choose to focus on applied inverse problems; biomedical mathematics; discrete mathematics; dynamical systems and fluid dynamics; or geometry, relativity, and gravitation.
