ANNOUNCEMENTS

New PhD Program Approved in the College of Science and Mathematics

The Ohio Board of Regents’ Advisory Committee on Graduate Study recommended the new PhD in Interdisciplinary Applied Science and Mathematics (IASM) for approval unanimously. On March 23, 2015, the Chancellor, John Carey, approved the new program.

The IASM PhD program is designed primarily for students possessing a B.S. or M.S. degree in mathematics, physics or other related disciplines. The program focuses on three areas: Materials and Nanoscale Science and Technology Development; Modeling and Analysis for Physical and Biological Systems; and Computational Problems in the Physical and Biological Sciences.

The proposed curriculum requires core courses that will prepare students for their dissertation work by focusing on research methodology, ethics, and scientific writing in addition to courses in advanced mathematics and computation. Eight focus area courses and four electives are also required. Projected full time equivalent enrollment ranges from five students in the first year, to 25 students in the fifth year.

The inaugural class of students will begin fall semester of 2015. Visit the IASM webpage for further information.
