What is Applied Mathematics?

Applied Mathematics is a rapidly growing field encompassing a number of interesting branches of study. Traditionally, the applications of analysis and differential equations to physical problems have been the purview of applied mathematicians, but with growing numbers of techniques and the rise of computing, one may as easily be studying cryptography, population dynamics, or fluid flow under the guise of applied mathematics. Those interested in the mathematical problems of biology, physics, economics, and engineering may find this program both interesting and rewarding.

What Can I do with a Degree in Applied Mathematics?

Students can choose electives that will enable them to apply mathematics to engineering, the physical sciences, biological sciences, environmental studies, social sciences and business applications. Mathematics graduates who have successfully completed the program are prepared to pursue graduate work or take their place in industry along with engineers and scientists.
