Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Industrial MathematicsOur courses in Industrial Mathematics are designed to introduce students to areas of mathematics used by business, high technology and industry, as well as to providing a basis for graduate work in Applied Mathematics.

We have many courses in Industrial Mathematics. Our numerical analysis I course is concerned with the development and analysis of numerical algorithms which lie at the basis for all aspects of computation (a second course is offered for those who want deeper exposure).

In addition, the mathematics used in high technology involves modeling, partial differential equations, and optimization - a framework of analysis developed over many years. The most common setting for physical models is in terms of partial differential equations and, since many practical problems in science and engineering cannot be solved completely by analytical means, their numerical solution is a major activity, both for technology development and for scientific research. The courses offered on these topics prepare students for more advanced courses such as finite element methods and graduate research.

Students are encouraged to take technical courses appropriate to their interests from other Science and Engineering Departments.
