Applied Mathematics - Computer Science
The Sc.B. concentration in Applied Math-Computer Science provides a foundation of basic concepts and methodology of mathematical analysis and computation and prepares students for advanced work in computer science, applied mathematics, and scientific computation. Concentrators must complete courses in mathematics, applied math, computer science, and an approved English writing course. While the concentration in Applied Math-Computer Science allows students to develop the use of quantitative methods in thinking about and solving problems, knowledge that is valuable in all walks of life, students who have completed the concentration have pursued graduate study, computer consulting and information industries, and scientific and statistical analysis careers in industry or government. This degree offers a standard track and a professional track.
Students in this concentration will:
- Develop an interdisciplinary foundation in math, applied mathematics and computer science
- Acquire advanced skills in critical and quantitative reasoning
- Design a focus area around a coherent theme
- Engage in a senior capstone project and produce a final paper or software project
