Graduates with a master’s in applied mathematics can expand their subject matter expertise by choosing a Ph.D. in applied mathematics at Florida Tech. As one of only 30 applied for mathematics programs in the United States, Florida Tech’s doctoral program offers several specializations in the field, including nonlinear analysis, stochastic analysis, optimization, numerical analysis, scientific computing, and statistics.

A Degree with Real Flexibility

In addition to the areas of specialization, Florida Tech provides additional flexibility in its Ph.D. in applied mathematics program, allowing doctoral students to design a curriculum that fits their specific research interests and career goals. As a national research university, Florida Tech is committed to providing students with a variety of applied mathematics research experiences, opening up careers in a wide range of industries.

Small Classes — World-Renowned Faculty

Students in the Ph.D. in the applied mathematics program at Florida Tech work closely with professors and fellow students. A small faculty-to-student ratio creates a close-knit academic community that is often impossible at larger universities. Professors in the math department have doctoral degrees in applied and computational mathematics and statistics. Professors—not graduate students—teach all courses, supervise student research projects, and conduct their own meaningful research studies that are often open for student collaboration.

Advanced Research Opportunities

As in any doctoral program, research is the core of the academic program. The Ph.D. in applied mathematics program explores many applied mathematics topics. Research is conducted in areas of science, engineering, medicine, and business through interdisciplinary teams, as well as in the areas of concentration needed for the doctoral degree program. Students take part in research projects such as dynamical systems and chaos theory, stem cell research, computational number theory, optimal control, inverse problems, and antagonistic stochastic games, to name a few.

Great Location

Many doctoral students in the Ph.D. in applied mathematics program are working professionals living in close proximity to the campus in Melbourne, Florida. The university is also a top pick among students around the world for its location within the Florida High Tech Corridor—home to more than 5,000 high-tech companies and the fifth-largest high-tech workforce in the nation.
