Mathematical Sciences

Mathematical Sciences degree students undergo a rigorous curriculum in a vibrant environment for professional development and scientific discourse. Our faculty, along with students, model combustion in diesel engines, use advanced statistics to find the genetic basis of complex diseases, and develop communication theories needed for future quantum computers.
