Computational Mathematics Major
THE MARQUETTE Computational mathematics major
LEARN FROM LEADERS. The professors who teach your undergraduate computational math courses are also principal investigators conducting biomathematical research with grants from agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
As a computational math major, you can contribute to research in:
- Applied mathematics
- High-performance computing
- Ubiquitous systems
- Mathematics education
INTERNSHIPS. As a computational math major, you'll develop technical expertise through full- or part-time internships and paid co-ops through Marquette’s Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science or the College of Engineering.
ELOQUENCE IN MATHEMATICS. Sure, math is a language, but not everybody will understand you when you speak it. That’s why our liberal-arts-based Core of Common Studies, with courses in English and languages, as well as philosophy, history and theology, will develop your abilities to think and speak clearly.
DARWIN WOULD BE PROUD OF YOU. With Marquette’s emphasis on the fundamental concepts and methods of computer science, rather than simple training in current technology, you’ll be sure to adapt well to the constantly evolving field of computational math.
You might like the computational math major if you:
- Have a logical mind
- Like mathematics and computers
- Are interested in testing computational models and mathematical theories
