New applications of mathematics are constantly being discovered and established techniques are being applied in new ways and in emerging fields. The MS in Applied Mathematics (MSAM) program in the Department of Mathematics is growing steadily, serving students from the region and worldwide. Our curriculum is designed to address the needs of those who are seeking to enter or are currently working in a variety of applied math careers, such as Financial service and investment management firms; Computer information and software firms; and Academic institutions and research institutes among others.
Capitalizing on Northeastern University’s proximity to many high-tech, financial, and research organizations, courses are developed and taught by professionals with expertise in state-of-the-art mathematical and computational practices. Courses meet in the evenings to accommodate our student’s busy schedules. Students are encouraged to take up to two courses outside the Mathematics Department, providing the flexibility to create a curriculum tailored to their career interests, and there is an optional internship program for course credit.
We are running a Data Analytics Workshop in Fall 2015, focused on applications of mathematics in image processing. The workshop is developed with C++ and uses the open source image processing and computer vision library OpenCV. This is a pilot program and we expect to run similar workshops in future semesters.
