# MS Mathematics: Industrial & Applied Math

Students in the University of Minnesota Master of Science: Mathematics with an emphasis in Industrial and Applied Mathematics program explore the core of mathematical innovation. Our comprehensive curriculum is meticulously crafted to blend theoretical foundations with real-world applications. You'll study advanced mathematical theories, computational techniques, and modeling methods that are directly applicable to industry professions.

## Plan type and coursework

The Master of Mathematics with an emphasis in Industrial and Applied Mathematics can be completed as a Plan A, B, or C Master’s. Plan A students take fewer courses, and complete 10 thesis credits and while writing their Master’s thesis. Regular Participation in the Industrial Problems seminar is a requirement of this program. Students entering the Master’s program are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to matriculation into the program. The minimum GPA of the Master’s program is 3.0. Coursework used to fulfill the degree requirements must be taken on a grade basis when offered. Students entering the Master’s program are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to matriculation into the program.
