Statement of Purpose
A significant number of faculty at Michigan Tech conduct research involving applied mathematics and statistics. There is also an increasing need for statistical consulting across the campus and from the community. The purpose of the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics (CAMS) is to foster collaborations among mathematicians, statisticians, scientists and engineers, provide statistical consulting for Tech faculty/students and the community, train undergraduate and graduate students, and, mostly importantly, pursue interdisciplinary proposals for external funding where computational mathematics and applied statistics play essential roles.
The mission of CAMS is to promote interdisciplinary research among mathematicians, statisticians, scientists, and engineers, and provide statistical consulting service for Michigan Tech and the community.
