The Department of Applied Mathematics has a multifaceted mission to provide an exceptional mathematical education focused on the unique needs of NPS students, to conduct relevant research, and to provide service to the broader community. A strong and vibrant Department of Applied Mathematics is essential to the university's goal of becoming a premiere research university. Because research in mathematics often impacts science and engineering in surprising ways, the department encourages mathematical explorations in a broad range of areas in applied mathematics with specific thrust areas that support the mission of the school. Mathematics is the language of science and is fundamental to every quantitative science and technology curriculum on campus. The Department of Applied Mathematics strives to provide a solid mathematical foundation for all students as they make the transition into graduate curricula. We provide high-quality instruction in all courses, giving emphasis to relevant and modern mathematical techniques in our advanced courses. And we encourage students to develop and utilize skills in analysis, reasoning, creativity, and exposition as they acquire knowledge of mathematics and its applications.
