The Professional Applied and Computational Mathematics (PACM) program is an innovative Professional Science Master's (PSM) degree program at Buffalo State College. This program, a collaboration between Buffalo State and a group of partners from Buffalo and the Western New York area, brings together a diverse interdisciplinary group of active faculty from academia and advisory board members from business, industry, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.
The goal of the PACM program is to train graduate students for careers in many emerging fields that now demand a new type of workforce with solid and in-depth background in applied and computational mathematics, as well as with effective business and communication skills.
The PACM program consists of 27 credits of academic training in data analysis, mathematical modeling, business communication, and management, as well as 3 credits of research internship.
If you have a bachelor's degree and want to gain in-depth knowledge about data science to advance your career, then this program is perfect for you.
Length: 3 semesters + 1 summer for full time students
Format: In person evening courses
If you are an Applied Math undergraduate student who is interested in completing your bachelors degree and your masters degree in a shorter amount of time for a lower tuition then this program is perfect for you.
Length: 4 years undergraduate + 1 year graduate
Format: Apply after completeing 75 credits and complete prerequisities before graduation. Complete 3 graduate level courses during your senior year at the undergraduate price. Apply to the program your senior year, your application fee will be waived. After graduating with your bachelor's degree take 1 year of master's level courses.
The Master of Science in Professional Applied and Computational Mathematics is a Professional Science Masters (PSM) affiliated program.
We choose to become a PSM affiliated program because we believe the principles of a PSM (internship, advisory board, and business accoutrement) will better prepare our students to be effective professionals in their field of study.
