B.S. in Computational Mathematics
The Bachelor of Science in Computational Mathematics is designed to produce graduates who can operate at the intersection of applied mathematics, computer science and a science applications area. This degree program integrates mathematical modeling, computing and visualization to solve complex problems that arise in the physical, natural, and behavioral sciences as well as engineering. By the end of their second year, students should select an area of concentration that supplements the program core and aligns with their interests and career goals. In the capstone course this background is synthesized and applied to computational models that arise in such areas as atmospheric physics, structural dynamics, or computational fluid dynamics.
Because of the emphasis on applied mathematics, computing tools, and science applications, this program provides an excellent background for graduates to secure entrylevel positions in various industries. Mathematics also serves as a respected degree leading to graduate study in many fields.
