Who We Are
The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of
Colorado, Boulder roots go back to the turn of the last century
when it originally was the Department of Engineering Mathematics.
The Department teaches thousands of students and has a major
research presence in computational and physical/biological
mathematics and the statistical sciences. It has 23 tenured or
tenure track faculty. In addition there are 10 full time
instructors, more than 110 graduate students including
approximately 40 teaching assistants, about 179 applied math
majors, 109 statistics majors, 105 minors and a thriving
Bachelor's-Accelerated Master's program.
The Department strives to be a leading program of applied
mathematics. In 2018, the US News & World Report ranked the
unit’s graduate program 14th in the nation. The unit also ranked
positively in many measures by the National Research Council in its
2010 decadal survey.
Our faculty have won numerous awards including: four being named
fellows of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, two
being named fellows of the American Mathematical Society, two being
named fellows of the American Physical Society, two Guggenheim
Fellows, American Statistical Association Fellow, Sloan Fellow. At
CU-System: one Distinguished Professor, and at CU-Boulder: Hazel
Barnes Prize, Professor of Distinction, winners of numerous
CU-Boulder faculty awards, and two distinguished research
What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be
