Degree Requirements
The program will be tailored to individual student needs, and will consist of 33 credit hours. A student will choose to specialize either in computer science, in applied mathematics, or with the help of their advisor, specialize in both disciplines. A thesis and nonthesis option is available. Students wishing to follow the thesis option must complete at least 24 credits of coursework and up to 9 credits of thesis. No more than two 400 level courses may apply toward this degree program.

No more than two 400level courses may be selected.  No more than two 400level courses may be selected. 
Students will be encouraged to take courses bridging the two disciplines (e.g. M562  Statistical Design of Experiments and B581  Advanced Computer Graphics). Both fulltime and parttime study will be possible.
GPA: Students are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above. Failure to maintain a 3.0 GPA for two consecutive semesters, or accumulating any two grades of D or below, may result in dismissal from the program.
TLC: The international students will also have to complete the required English as a Secondary Language classes based on the scores obtained at the placement test. More details here.
Concentration: Students who want to do a concentration in one discipline (applied mathematics or computer science) need to take at least 21 credits in that discipline. The thesis credits are considered as part of the 21 credits if a thesis option is chosen.
Y790: This course number is reserved for the thesis credits. Students who choose not to do a thesis have the option to complete a research project with an advisor for up to 3 credits of Y790 that can count towards the 33 credits required. The outcome of the research project must also be in the form of a technical report or a publishable research paper.
Duration: The program must be completed within seven years. Only courses taken within seven years of completion of the first course in the program may count toward this degree.
