Applied Mathematics

Offered as a Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree

The Applied Mathematics Program aims to give students a solid base of knowledge of mathematics which has important applications in computer science, psychology, economics, business, and other fields. Applied math is used to solve practical, real-world problems while mathematics examines math theory at a fundamental level.

Courses in this BA or BSc programs are at the core of many disciplines ranging from engineering and science to business and economics.

It is essential to be able to apply many different mathematical techniques and to handle problems involving statistical data. Applied mathematics includes the area of scientific computing, which involves many components of computational processes — numerical analysis, algorithms for machines with vector and parallel architectures, visualization, simulation and computer-aided design.
