About the Degree:
Computational mathematics centers around mathematical research in areas where computing plays an integral role. Algorithms, numerical methods and symbolic methods are stressed and research computation is essential. The Mathematics Major with the Computational Mathematics Option is the same as the Bachelor of Science in CIS, Computer Science (Computational Math Option). Only courses in which you have earned a grade of "C" or above can be used to satisfy departmental mathematics requirements and supporting requirements.
Students selecting this option will graduate with a Mathematics and Computer Information Sciences double major.
What You'll Learn:
The fundamentals of pure and applied mathematics.
Calculus with analytic geometry.
A thorough grounding in CIS, from programming to database management systems, computer networks, operating systems and more.
This Degree is Great for You if:
- You need the blend of computer science and applied mathematics to give you the skills needed for many of today's applications.
- You are headed for the work force in such areas as software development, logistics, international banking or research.
- You want to go to graduate school or start your own consulting firm.
