BS in Computational and Applied Mathematics
Students pursuing a degree in Computational and Applied Mathematics gain experience in mathematical modeling, applied analysis, the development and analysis of numerical algorithms, and the use of mathematical software. Courses include Computational Methods for Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, Parallel Scientific Computing, Programming Concepts, to name a few. In addition to an in-depth mathematics curriculum, students have opportunities to incorporate a minor or area of special interest to delve into another discipline; from Biochemistry to Electrical Engineering to Physics.
Substantial focus is placed on the development of practical applications and techniques to enhance the competitiveness of our students to a wide range of employment opportunities including careers in computer programing, systems analytics, finance, national laboratories, academia, and in industry. Employment of Mathematicians is projected to grow 21% from 2014-2024, much faster than the average (11%) for all occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
