Approved applied math courses for the ME Plan of Study

MS programs require a minimum of six credit hours of applied math courses. At least 3 credit hours must be a MA 50000 or 60000 level course. Three credit hours may be from the list of approved applied math courses offered in other departments at Purdue, listed below.

D-PhD and PhD degree programs require a minimum of 9 credit hours of applied math courses, usually three courses. At least two courses must be MA 50000 or 60000 level courses; the other 3 credits can be from the list of approved applied math courses below. Math courses taken during the MS may be included as PhD applied math courses.
