Applied analysis and computation are essential to research in virtually every field of science and engineering. Modern engineering is, to a large extent, computational engineering. Computational and applied mathematics (CAAM) is the fundamental discipline that underlies practice and intellectual advancement in mathematical modeling, applied analysis, the development and analysis of numerical algorithms, and the implementation and dissemination of mathematical software. CAAM provides a key enabling technology for all aspects of computational engineering and numerical simulation.
Sanket Mehta loves that Riceâ€™s partnership with Texas Medical Center institutions enhances his education. It was a driving factor for why he chose Rice University, and he came to realize that a CAAM major would provide him with a wealth of tools and allow him to pursue his passion.
