The central research mission of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) is to develop sophisticated algorithmic and mathematical tools that impact many applied disciplines. ICME leverages Stanford's strengths in engineering applications and the physical, biological, mathematical and information sciences to guide the development of modern methods for research and education in computational mathematics.

ICME's teaching mission is to provide courses for graduate students and undergraduates from all departments in the mathematical sciences focusing on theoretical work and its role in the solution of real problems, integrating numerical computation to facilitate application of mathematical techniques and theories. The institute identifies research areas that benefit from a multidisciplinary approach in which computational mathematics plays a key role such as discrete mathematics, including computational probability and combinatorial optimization, optimization, stochastics, and numerical solution of partial differential equations. Research applications include the physical sciences, business, medicine, and information science.

A strength of ICME is its multidisciplinary intellectual environment, with interaction among students and faculty with diverse backgrounds and expertise. ICME offers service courses for undergraduates and graduate students to fulfill departmental requirements, core courses for M.S. and Ph.D. students in Scientific Computing and Computational Mathematics, and specialized electives in various application areas.
