# Applied Mathematics Bachelor of Science

## Leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Mathematics

Wentworth Institute of Technology offers a three-year B.S. in Applied Mathematics, in which Applied Math majors take six semesters of classes and complete two marketable applied math co-ops. Graduates, in addition to continuing their education at the graduate level, may seek employment in a variety of fields including government, finance, risk-management and actuarial science, predictive modeling, data science, research, operations research, quality assurance, software engineering, statistics, biomedicine, and informatics.

While the degree is designed as a three-year program, students may opt to complete the degree in four years. Please contact the Applied Mathematics department for more information.

### Student Outcomes

Program graduates will be able to:

- Apply mathematical concepts to perform computations, model phenomena, and write proofs.
- Effectively use mathematical software packages for computation, modeling, and presentations.
- Write code in a high-level computer programming language.
- Deliver clear and precise, written and oral presentations, demonstrating: (1) comprehension of mathematical content and (2) the ability to communicate that mathematical content to different audiences.
- Apply mathematics in a professional setting.
