Applied
Mathematics employs a variety of mathematical methods and techniques
to explore, describe, and predict the behavior of scientific, industrial,
and engineering phenomena. Applied Mathematics appeals to individuals
interested in applying their mathematical interests and skills to real-world
problems.

There
is a need nationally for individuals with rigorous training in applied
mathematics. Graduates of our program acquire the necessary applied
mathematical skills needed to help meet this demand. We are one of the
three SUNY campuses offering a degree in Applied Mathematics.

Applied
mathematicians have the skills needed to pursue careers as statisticians,
demographics analysts, scientific programmers, cryptographers, biological
systems analysts, statistical forecasters, computer modeling consultants,
reliability analysts, and aerospace systems analysts. They obtain employment
in fields as diverse as aerospace, oil exploration, electrical manufacturing,
geology, actuarial science, chemistry, communications, and computing.
Health sciences, applied science, and engineering offer additional prospects
to applied mathematicians in the academic, business, industrial, and
government sectors. The basic skills required to succeed in any of these
fields are acquired in the Applied Mathematics Program.
