The Department of Applied Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences offers courses and degree programs for undergraduates and graduate students. The Department of Applied Mathematics currently has 21 full-time faculty, several instructors and post-doctoral associates and maintains an active Visitor Program with researchers from around the world. Courses range from calculus to seminars in computation, discrete mathematics, probability and statistics, nonlinear phenomena, mathematical biology, and physical applied mathematics.
The undergraduate program in AMEN prepares graduates to practice effectively in the field of mathematics, or to further their careers through advanced study. The principle focus of a major in applied math is to improve a student’s mathematical, computational, and communication skills. The focus is on modeling problems from a variety of areas including business, engineering and science.
