Use mathematics to solve real-world problems.
Our students and faculty apply computational and analytical methods to solve challenges in neuroscience, medical imaging, evolutionary biology, mathematical ecology, oceanography, physics, mathematical finance, economics and more. As a result, our alumni are in demand across a wide range of sectors, from healthcare to business and finance.
A degree in applied mathematics can lead to a career as a(n):
- Software engineer
- Computer systems analyst
- Data scientist
- Financial analyst
- Market researcher
- Data analyst
Dig deeper into your interests with research.
Mathematics can be applied to almost any field. Here are some of the areas our faculty and students are exploring:
- Scientific computing and numerical analysis
- Nonlinear waves and coherent structures
- Mathematical biology
- Mathematical models for infectious diseases, climate change, and other pressing issues
- Mathematical methods
- Mathematical finance
Apply Mathematics to Practical Problems
Use your knowledge of mathematics to discover creative solutions to pressing real-world challenges.
