Breakthroughs often occur at the intersection of disciplines. At the nation’s best universities, researchers in applied and computational mathematics are collaborating with biologists, engineers, physicians, chemists, physicists, economists, and others on multifaceted problems that require mathematical modeling and computational simulation.  Students trained in modeling and having experience as multidisciplinary team members have extraordinary potential. As in experimental research, graduate students have a primary role in computational and statistical analysis. The student has responsibility for carrying out the detailed steps and integrating the input from faculty in multiple areas. Additional information regarding the doctoral program, faculty research areas, recent graduate student placements, information about the Notre Dame Graduate School and the City of South Bend may be found in the ACMS doctoral program flyer.
