Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Computational Mathematics is designed for students who wish to pursue a career path with a focus on modeling and simulation.  The advance of user-friendly computational resources has made complex nonlinear scientific problems accessible to scientists and engineers, but it is critical to understand how to use these tools wisely, requiring understanding of the underlying mathematical assumptions. Computational Mathematics uses traditional mathematical analysis and numerical methods to address problems where computing plays an essential role.

Area of Concentration

The Computational Mathematics degree includes an Area of Concentration that reflects the individual student's interests and career goals. Faculty advisors guide students as they select a concentration from such areas as:

  • Systems Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Business and Finance, or
  • Space Physics

The senior capstone course is an opportunity to work on an interdisciplinary project in a team environment, where team members use their foundations in mathematics and computing to address an interesting problem related their area of concentration. Many projects combine mathematical analysis and computation with experimentation in the Mathematics Department's , which contains one of the most technologically advanced wave tanks in the United States.

Advantages

Unlike many technical degrees, the Bachelor of Science in Computational Mathematics is extremely flexible, and allows students to explore mathematical application areas suited to their interests and career goals. The study of mathematics — with computational resources playing an essential role — allows students to develop a deeper understanding of technology, where the underlying mathematics is typically hidden to those without sufficient training. Such common application areas as transportation networks, Internet security, marketing and pricing strategies, and design optimization all put mathematical theory to use in important and innovative ways.  

The study of computational mathematics positions the graduate to either pursue advanced study, or enter the workplace in entry level positions with a focus on systems analysis, prototype and product development or data procurement and analysis.
