The Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics
(CAMS) is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to supporting
applied research in the mathematical sciences at NJIT. CAMS was
established in 1986 to promote research in the mathematical sciences at
the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Members of the Department of
Mathematical Sciences naturally form the core of CAMS membership, but
the importance of mathematics for science and technology has made CAMS
an interdisciplinary organization.
CAMS brings researchers from academia, industry, and
government to NJIT and other institutions by organizing
interdisciplinary workshops and by bringing together researchers whose
strengths are complementary and whose goals are common. CAMS activities
also include support for the submission of research proposals, which is
done through dissemination of information, organization of group
projects, collegial advice and assistance with application documents.
Graduate student research is encouraged through the CAMS Summer
Research Program and support for students to attend conferences.
In the future, CAMS hopes and expects to maintain its high
standards of professionalism and scholarship and plans to extend its
activities to include fostering more research by undergraduate students
and developing long-term relationships with industry.
