Highlights in Department


The Department of Mathematics currently offers a 4-year Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree. Industrial mathematics is an inherently interdisciplinary field. In addition to mathematics, it includes subjects from fields outside mathematics such as business, computer science and engineering, and trains mathematics students how to apply mathematical analysis to problems arising in these areas. An industrial mathematician has strong analytical and problem-solving skills built upon a background of computing, mathematics, statistics, and basic science. In addition, industrial mathematics emphasizes written and oral skills along with teamwork, skills which are valued highly in industry, but are not part of most traditional mathematics programs. Since these skills are necessary for graduates to work effectively with less mathematically inclined co-workers, they are an essential part of industrial mathematics.
