The Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics (ACMS) offers programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in applied and computational mathematics and statistics. Computational skills, which are often required to solve real-world problems, will be developed continuously throughout the curriculum. For many students, significant work in an area of application will complement their core studies. Graduates of the program will be well prepared for the following post-graduate opportunities:
- Further training in professional master's or doctoral programs in applied mathematics or statistics
- Graduate study, at the master's or doctoral level, in bioinformatics or computational biology
- Employment in technical fields requiring skills in statistics and computation
- Employment and further study in quantitative methods in business and economics
The partnership of applied mathematics, computational mathematics, and statistics brings the tools of modeling, simulation, and data analysis to bear on real-world problems, producing solutions with the power to predict and explain complex phenomena. These methods, often applied computationally, are being used in a wide variety of areas in business, engineering, the natural sciences, and the social sciences.
