The Department of Applied Mathematics at Florida Polytechnic University has embarked on a new initiative in Engineering Mathematics since August 2019.

Relatively near-term plans include a Master's degree program for the department.
Ideally, applicants will provide evidence of prior success in teaching (both undergraduate and graduate) and research with an established record of independent research funding, publication history in high quality, peer reviewed journals, and supervision of graduate and/or undergraduate students.
