Introduction

What is a Mathematical Sciences Degree?

The mathematical sciences degree curriculum is designed primarily for dual majors in biology, chemistry, physics, or an engineering discipline. During the first two years of study, students in this program take the same courses as those students getting an applied mathematics degree, followed by upper-division mathematics courses (such as numerical analysis and modeling) in the final two years. Students also take electives in social science, computer science, and engineering.

Whether you want to study the intricacies of discrete mathematics, design neural networks, or develop a better web search algorithm, Florida Tech’s mathematical sciences degree gives you a strong background in calculus and experience in science and engineering.

Internationally Recognized Faculty — Personalized Attention

Students attending a mathematics university like Florida Tech benefit from working with knowledgeable mentors who put students’ success first. The Department of Mathematical Sciences faculty members all have doctoral degrees in their field and are highly respected on an international level. They teach all classes and are involved in meaningful research work, which often involves undergraduate students, something many students look for in choosing a mathematics university.

We get students involved in faculty-run interdisciplinary research during their freshman year. The program is hands-on, modeling-based, and includes lab and field experiments as part of your program. Some of the research you may be involved in includes applied statistics, mathematical programming, neural networks, combinatorial optimization, operations research, and queuing theory.

Located in the Heart of Florida’s High-Tech Corridor

Florida Tech is the perfect place for a Mathematical Sciences degree. The 130-acre campus is located on the Space Coast (so named because of the presence of NASA and the Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral just north of us), minutes away from the Indian River Lagoon, the most diverse estuary in North America.

The area has the fifth-largest high-tech workforce in the country, with more than 5,000 high-tech corporations and government and military organizations located nearby. This workforce also provides an abundance of internship and employment opportunities.

Florida Tech is just over the causeway from the Atlantic Ocean with its 72 miles of beautiful beaches, and a short trip to the Florida Keys or the Orlando theme parks. We also have a rich campus life that includes a wide range of intramural and collegiate sports, clubs, and social activities.

Build Lasting Professional Relationships through Campus Organizations

Beyond the classroom, mathematical sciences majors build leadership and professional experience through participation in academic organizations like the American Mathematical Society, the Society of Actuaries, the Student Astronomical Society, the student government, and over 100 other student organizations.

The Infinity Math Club, a student-run organization, brings together students from all disciplines that share a curiosity for and interest in math. The group meets on a regular basis to discuss math problems and developments. The student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is dedicated to bringing together mathematics, science, and technology to better the world. Networking, math internships, and research join together to provide well-rounded preparation for a career in math.
