About This Degree
The Industrial Mathematics Program teaches students modeling, simulation, mathematical and statistical analysis for careers in industry and mathematical sciences.
Students are prepared to work at a variety of government and industrial research jobs, teaching careers at community colleges as well as for entry to doctoral programs in applied mathematics or statistics.
What You Will Learn
Research project topics are suggested by industrial and scientific internship partners; recent research has developed Bayesian optimization tools for use in quantitative Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbant Assay (ELISA) to detect bio-pathogens, used path planning algorithms to govern robotic devices in complicated environments, or developed stochastic models to describe vegetation responses to changing arid environments.
Applicants are welcomed from any undergraduate technical major, including computer science, chemistry, engineering, math, physics and statistics.
Climate Adaptation Science (Industrial Mathematics MS):The Climate Adaptation Science specialization provides students with experiences in actionable science through internship and research experiences. Program includes interdisciplinary research to identify adaptive responses to changing climate extremes and two-part internships with agency, NGO, and industry partners. In a first internship, students contribute to projects and learn the workplace cultures and science needs of the host. The internship experiences inform interdisciplinary climate adaptation research by student teams. In a second internship, students share science results and tools with the host organization and help put that science into action.
Career And Outcomes
Graduates are employed as research-track faculty or lecturers at universities and colleges as well as governmental labs, industrial research centers, and private industry. We have had 95% success at employing Industrial Math graduates.
