Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM)
is an interdisciplinary centre fostering various researches and teaching activities in mathematical sciences.
A major aim of IAM is to coordinate mathematics-based research at METU and to initiate and undertake
collaborative research with industry.
The Institute of Applied Mathematics began functioning in the academic year 2002-03 by offering Master of Science (MSc) degrees in Financial Mathematics, Scientific Computing and Cryptography. The Cryptography department was the only department offering Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at that time. In the spring semester of the academic year 2004-05, IAM offered PhD in Financial Mathematics and Scientific Computing to cater the growing demands of professionally skilled manpower in Applied Mathematics.
