WHAT IS APPLIED MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES?

This major is part of the Math and Engineering Exploration Group

Applied Mathematical Sciences Major Website

This major involves a more practical use of math...using math in the "real world". This major is more numerically based and may be good for students who are focused on a career directly after completing their undergraduate degree. 

Applied mathematicians develop techniques and approaches to solving problems in many areas, such as physics, engineering, biology, and economics. Their work typically starts with a practical problem. They envision the separate elements of the process under consideration and convert these different parts into mathematical models that can be solved exactly or, more often, approximately. Coding skills are very important for anyone pursuing a career in applied math.
