Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematicians develop and analyze mathematical models of complex real-world phenomena using available data, identifying relationships and patterns, etc. They test, validate and interpret solutions to provide a better understanding of processes and develop optimal solutions. Mathematics graduates today find careers in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, in manufacturing, in emerging technologies such as fiber optic communications, in aerospace industries, in the financial industry, and in energy-related industries.
