The Department of Mathematical Science at Florida Tech offers students education and training in the areas of applied mathematics, mathematical biology and operations research. Our department is one of the few mathematics departments in the nation with a major in mathematical biology. Currently, it has 12 full-time faculty, 48 undergraduate students (including dual majors) and 60 graduate students.

The math faculty provides unique research opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of:

  • Mathematical Modeling
  • Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
  • Reaction-Diffusion Equations
  • Nonlinear Analysis
  • Potential Theory
  • Inverse Problems and Optimal Control
  • Scientific Computing
  • Image Processing
  • Data Mining
  • Queuing Theory
  • Optimization
  • Dynamical Systems and Chaos Theory

Honors Calculus Sequence

The Department of Mathematical Sciences introduces Honors Calculus sequence in Fall 2017, which is open to all FIT students. The course MTH 1010 Mathematical Analysis 1 will be offered in Fall 2017. It is a proof based rigorous version of MTH 1001 Calculus 1. As a continuation, the course MTH 1020 Mathematical Analysis 2 will be offered in Spring 2018 as an honors version of MTH 1002 Calculus 2. Rigorous honors calculus sequence is open to all FIT students with strong math background. New sequence MTH 1010 and MTH 1020 will replace the requirements of MTH 1001 and MTH 1002 in all degree programs. Please contact the Math Department for any additional advice and inquiries.

Research Experience for Undergraduates, PDEs and Dynamical Systems

Each summer from 2014 to 2016, selected undergraduate students will participate in an 8 week summer REU Site, which is designed to involve undergraduate students in innovative research in nonlinear PDEs, optimal control and inverse problems, and dynamical systems and chaos theory, while utilizing modern tools of mathematical and numerical analysis.
One group from REU in Summer 2015 has been invited to the prestigious 5th Research Experience for Undergraduates Symposium at NSF organized by the Council on Undergraduate Research on October 25-26, 2015. For more information, click here.
