The School of Arts & Sciences

Department of Computer Science & Mathematics

MS 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.


Starting fall 2020, distinguished students can benefit from a full scholarship. Deadline to apply: June 30, 2020.

Graduate Assistantships

The Department of Computer Science and Mathematics is currently accepting Graduate Assistantship applications for the fall 2020 semester. 

Admission Requirements

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.


I. Core requirements (6 credits)

II. ACM799 (Thesis): 6 credits

III. Elective ACM Courses: 18 credits
