Mathematics/Applied Mathematics Area

This area program is designed for those wishing to use their mathematical knowledge in an applied setting - industry - which may range over many fields (engineering, finance, statistics, to name just a few). The program is very flexible, as courses related to the application of mathematics may be chosen from a wide variety of disciplines, including mathematics or statistics.
