Dear students,

The Department of Applied Mathematics (AM) at the University of California Santa Cruz is offering two graduate programs that may be of interest to you, as you look forward to your graduate studies. The programs are:

- a new **MS program in Scientific Computing and Applied Mathematics (SciCAM)**, targeted to students who are interested in developing these skills to pursue either jobs in Research and Development in the industry or in National Labs, or further graduate school in other topics where applied mathematics and scientific computing are viewed as particularly good skills to have (e.g. physics, astrophysics, computational neuroscience, control theory, computational chemistry, mathematical biology, etc..). The deadline for application is February 1, 2019.

See: https://www.soe.ucsc.edu/departments/applied-mathematics-statistics/teaching/scicam-masters-program

- an established **MS/PhD program in Applied Mathematics **(and Statistics), targeted to students interested in various topics in Applied Mathematics including Control Theory, Stochastic Modeling, Fluid Dynamics, High-Performance Computing, and Mathematical Biology. The deadline for application is January 10, 2019.
