M.S. in Applied and Computational Mathematics
The Lebanese American University offers a Masters program in Applied and Computational Mathematics. This research-oriented program is the first of its kind in Lebanon and the region; it presents a unique opportunity for students to conduct high quality research on problems of significant impact in applied sciences. Applied mathematics encompasses few of the most diverse and interdisciplinary research in sciences and engineering. Faculty and students of the program are in a position to cooperate with researchers from other Schools on projects that are interdisciplinary in nature.
Applicants to the MS in Applied and Computational Mathematics program should hold a BS degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering, or other related fields. Non-Math majors may have to take some undergraduate Mathematics remedial courses in order to join the MS program. The remedial courses are prescribed on a case-by-case basis, however a minimal knowledge in Real, Differential, and Functional analysis is expected.
