About this program
Given the impact of technology on every aspect of people's lives, mathematics is a critical discipline for the present as well as future generations of students. Technology is based on science, and the most successful science is based on mathematical ideas. In learning mathematics and its applications, students learn not only the language of nature, but the archetype of reasoning on which today's scientific and technological society is based.
The Mathematics Department offers a solid, flexible and innovative program in applied mathematics. Through the opening of bridges to other disciplines and a focus on topics and problems cutting across various subject fields, the mathematics major integrates both depth and breadth, providing the student with tools for success in the workforce and a solid basis for further studies in mathematics.
After completing the Applied Mathematics major, students will be able to:
- Use mathematical and statistical knowledge to formulate appropriate models and problem-solving approaches in diverse contexts
- Utilize computing skills for problem-solving, data analysis, and visualization
- Effectively communicate problem-solving methods and findings
