God's design and wisdom in creation is evident in the mathematical arrangement and order of the universe. A person cannot turn a wheel, design a machine, or study his environment without some knowledge of mathematics. As stewards of God’s creation, we are given the precious tool of mathematics. The applied math major offers training focused on the mathematics used in science and engineering, but also offers training in the theory of mathematics.
Applied math graduates pursue a surprisingly wide variety of careers, such as:
Our graduates have also obtained successful positions in high tech areas like computer science and electrical engineering, and gone on to graduate schools such as the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and Rochester Polytechnic Institute.
