- A minimum of 45 credits of approved graduate courses, of which 30 credits must be from courses offered by TIM (unless exceptions are approved by the faculty adviser and TIM graduate director);
- Two TIM seminars (4 credits minimum);
- Applied Mathematics and Statistics 200, Research and Teaching in AMS (3 credits), or Computer Science 200, Research and Teaching in Computer Science and Engineering (3 credits);
- A minimum of 10 credits of dissertation research or independent study credits; and
- Ph.D. dissertation.
The research areas in TIM are varied, and each will require a different sequence of classes to develop appropriate depth in analytical methods and technology. The selection of graduate courses will be in consultation with the dissertation supervisor.
Although there is no teaching requirement, students will be encouraged to gain teaching experience by becoming teaching assistants (TAs).
Where appropriate, research internships with companies, government laboratories, or elsewhere are recognized (and may be required) as an integral part of the research leading to the dissertation.
