B.S. in Engineering Mathematics 2008

The information and requirements given here apply to the 2008–2009 catalog. For other catalog years, please consult the archive.


The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering Mathematics is a joint program of the Mathematics Department and the College of Engineering. This program combines an engineering degree with an intensive program in mathematics. In order to meet specific career objectives, this degree allows a great deal of flexibility in course selection. You may use technical electives (*) to complete one of the following options:

The first option would be useful should you seek a career in management for an engineering-related firm. The second and third options would be suitable should you seek a position in industry where analytical and computational abilities are needed to solve otherwise intractable engineering problems.

(*) Technical electives are to be chosen in consultation with your faculty advisor.

The complete official requirements are given in the University Catalog in the form of an Academic Program Requirements Report (APRR). Below we cover the portion of the requirements specific to the engineering mathematics major, with a link to the APRR for complete requirements. It is important for students to consult with their academic advisor about their choice and order of courses, as well as which optional courses would strengthen their degree program.


A foreign language and minor are not required for this program.
