Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO)
The ACO program at Georgia Tech brings together the study of discrete structures and the design and analysis of algorithms in areas such as graph theory, integer programming, combinatorial optimization, and polyhedral theory. It is intended for students possessing a strong background in one or more of the fields represented by the sponsoring units.
Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field in which physical sciences, life sciences, computer science, and engineering are merged to solve both fundamental and applied problems in biology and medicine. The mission of the Georgia Tech Bioinformatics PhD Program is to educate and prepare graduate students to reach the forefront of leadership in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology and to integrate research and education on the use of information technologies in biology and medicine.
Quantitative and Computational Finance (QCF)
Research interests include procurement and contract theory in supply chains, financial asset pricing and real options valuation, financial engineering applications in energy markets, stochastic modeling, and simulation. Has an information technology and computation class as a requirement.
The Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering includes a Ph.D. program for Applied Statistics, with emphasis on the use of statistics in a technological environment. In the Applied Statistics Program, a student may specialize in a specific area of application such as manufacturing statistics, reliability and quality control, simulation, or more traditional areas of statistical research. Students in this program study the mathematics needed for advanced work in probability and statistics as well as necessary advanced work in an application area. Graduates typically go on to careers on university facilities in statistics, engineering, or management, as well as in industry or government positions as researchers or consultants.
