# Applied Mathematics

Print## Topics of Study

In this program, you will focus on application of mathematics and statistics in the solution of problems in engineering and applied sciences. Mathematics includes algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, probability, and statistics. Instruction is in computer-assisted mathematical analysis and development of algorithms related to research problems. You will take courses in economics, art, and science, and others, as applied math often is used in research in these areas. Later courses will be in differential equations, group theory, and symbolic logic.
