Applied mathematics and analytics majors create solutions to complex real-world problems through a mathematical approach. Students build a theoretical foundation of mathematics, apply programming strategies to analyze and visualize data, and create predictive models to aid in decision-making through course-embedded projects. These course-embedded projects hone critical thinking skills, and provide students with invaluable teamwork, communication, and networking opportunities that employers seek.
