Computational mathematics is at the heart of many engineering and science disciplines and has grown into a strong and very exciting interdisciplinary field of research.

 

 

We do Big Math

At Stanford, we've offered MS and PhD degrees in computational mathematics for over 30 years. For the last 10 years, ICME has been the central home of computational mathematics on campus. We conduct ground breaking research, train and advise our graduate students and provide over 60 courses in computational mathematics and scientific computing at both the undergraduate and graduate level to the Stanford community.

Research & PhD Program

We develop innovative computational and mathematical approaches for complex engineering and scientific problems. We attract talented PhD students from across the globe. They are advised in research by 50 faculty from 20 departments, covering a wide variety of fields including statistics and data science, control, optimization, numerical analysis, applied mathematics, high-performance computing, earth sciences, flow physics, graphics, bioengineering, genomics, economics and financial mathematics, molecular dynamics, and many more. PhD graduates find outstanding positions in industry, at national laboratories, as well as in academia.

MS Program

Our MS degree provides a solid introduction to computational mathematics and computing. ICME MS graduates find positions in industry, or continue with a PhD in ICME or disciplinary programs. We offer several specialized MS degree tracks. In 2014-2015 they include Computational Geosciences, Data Science, Imaging Sciences, and Mathematical & Computational Finance. In 2015-2016, Computational Medicine will be added.
