UNDERGRADUATE MAJORS - Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics Concentration
The Applied Mathematics Concentration provides a mixture of courses in pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, with the following goals in mind: (i) familiarity with the basic mathematical tools used in all branches of science and technology, (ii) training in logical and abstract reasoning, (iii) advanced study in applied mathematics itself, (iv) familiarity with the types of problems encountered in other fields, and (v) experience with the use of computers and computer programming.
For students who find mathematics interesting, this program offers an ideal combination of intellectual challenge and employability. The Applied Mathematics Concentration is excellent preparation for graduate study in engineering, physics, operations research, or applied mathematics itself.
Because the applications of mathematics are so diverse, this program has considerable flexibility. The emphasis is on mathematics that is useful in solving problems arising in engineering, physics, and other sciences. In the junior and senior years, the student chooses technical electives from other departments. In addition, there are enough free electives to enable the student to pursue an interest in an unrelated field, or to broaden his or her mathematical, statistical, or technical background.
Important: The above checklist should be used only with consultation with your department advisor to ensure that you meet all requirements for graduation.
