Our department offers graduate programs leading to the degrees Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Specialization can be in any of a wide range of areas in mathematical analysis or statistics. Our faculty, consisting of half civilian and half military, publish research articles and present their research at major conferences and symposia. Some hold research grants from national agencies and others serve on editorial boards for journals. We also teach graduate classes for practically every program in the Institute. The department also hosts an active colloquium series featuring speakers from a wide spectrum of universities and research laboratories as well as the defense department.
