Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics


Mission Statement


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.
