MS in Computational and Mathematical Engineering
Stanford University


The Master of Science in Computational and Mathematical Engineering program identifies research areas that would benefit from a multidisciplinary approach in which computational mathematics plays a role.

The program trains students and scholars from across Stanford in mathematical modeling, scientific computing, and advanced computational algorithms at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Courses typically provide strong theoretical foundations for the solution of real world problems and numerical computations to facilitate application of mathematical techniques and theories. Training offered includes matrix computations, computational probability and combinatorial optimization, optimization, stochastic, numerical solution of partial differential equations, parallel computer algorithms, and new computing paradigms, amongst others.

ICME offers service courses for undergraduates and graduate students to fulfill departmental requirements, core courses for master's and doctoral students in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, and specialized electives in various application areas.

Core Courses:

  • Foundational Courses
  • Breadth Electives 
  • Specialized Electives 
  • Programming 
  • Seminars

Academic Pre-Requisites

The following is a list of requirements applicants must fulfill in order to successfully apply for the MS-IS program at Northeastern University:

  • Statement of Purpose
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Transcripts
  • Test Scores: GRE General test scores from an examination taken within the past five years of the application deadline. GMAT scores cannot be substituted for the GRE score requirement. TOEFL Scores must be submitted from a test taken within the last 18 months of the application deadline. 
  • Minimum TOEFL score is 89. But university recommend 113 or higher. IELTS cannot be taken in place of TOEFL.


According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs for mathematicians were expected to grow 23 percent from 2012-2022 ( Computational mathematicians, specifically, may enjoy the best job prospects due to their ability to solve real-world problems through computer science principles and mathematical theory. Still, mathematicians can expect intense job competition. As of May 2013, mathematicians earned a mean annual wage of $103,310. The lowest-paid ten percent earned an annual wage of $55,200, and the highest-paid ten percent earned $155,480..
