Welcome to the Department of Engineering Sciences & Applied Mathematics
Since 1977, the Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University has been one of the leading applied mathematics programs in the world.
The core philosophy of the department is to apply mathematics to interesting and challenging problems relating to the world around us, specifically in engineering and the physical, biological, and social sciences.
The department offers undergraduate, master’s, and PhD degrees in applied mathematics. Ours is a relatively small department, which provides students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels with greater access to faculty members both in and outside of the classroom.
Current research areas include:
- Asymptotic analysis
- Biological systems
- Complex systems
- Diffusive processes
- Earth sciences
- Fluid dynamics
- Materials science
- Mathematical biology
- Scientific computing
- Social systems
- Wave propagation
