I'm a biological engineering major who is starting to lean more towards mathematics. More specifically, I'm interested in mathematical modeling and applying these models to biological systems, geosystems, ecology, etc (mainly scientific problems). I will be minoring in math in order to supplement my engineering curriculum with applied math courses. My hope has been to get into a graduate program in applied math (at least to a terminal masters), but recently I've discovered numerous Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) programs. They seem to be similar to applied math programs in nature but with additional focus on computer science and applications to engineering problems. This is basically what I've learned from numerous programs websites, but I still can't seem to make a huge distinction in my mind between applied math and CSE programs. It seems as though many applied math programs have this same interdisciplinary feel and often work closely with engineering divisions. On the other hand, some CSE programs also have a focus on problems in science that are often found in applied math departments. It seems as though my chances of getting into a CSE program would be much greater given my background and the fact that they do not require that Math GRE like most applied math programs do. I am wondering for which scenarios one program may be better suited than the other. Is one better for entering industry, national lab, or academia after a masters or PhD? Any and all help is much appreciated!
