Graduate program Stochastic Systems Analysis and Optimization
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stevens offers an interdisciplinary graduate program in Stochastic Systems to educate students in the area of analysis and optimal decisions for complex systems involving uncertain data. This unique program combines analysis of uncertainty and risk with modern decision tools as stochastic optimization and stochastic optimal control. Full information and course description
