Applied and Computational Mathematics BS

The primary goal of the Applied and Computational Mathematics program is to give graduates a firm understanding of mathematics and its applications to science and engineering. Graduates are expected to develop a strong foundation of mathematical knowledge and skill in the core areas of analysis, differential equations, numerical methods, and modeling. Graduates are also expected to attain a basic understanding of probability, statistics, and abstract algebra.  

Because applied mathematicians are problem solvers, graduates must develop the ability to formulate and solve problems arising from scientific and engineering. This entails acquiring fundamental knowledge in the basic sciences, programming, and the completion of a customizable emphasis area. Graduates will take three courses in an external discipline that will provide exposure and depth in an application area of mathematics. (Information on past emphasis areas and associated courses are available from the department or academic advisor.)
