PACM (the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics) is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental program that provides a home for people from many fields and directions, who share a passion for mathematics and its applications.

Our core faculty is presently constituted by 11 core faculty members who hold a joint appointment between their home department and PACM; the faculty also function as an executive committee for PACM in all its important decisions.

Drawing from a wide range of departments, from the physical sciences and engineering to the human sciences, PACM counts 46 Princeton faculty members among its associate faculty; they provide mentoring and advising to our students interested in their fields of expertise. We have both a graduate program and an undergraduate certificate program. Currently for the 2021-22 academic year, we have 29 graduate students enrolled and 57 undergraduate certificate students.
