The Department of Applied Mathematics cultivates a broad knowledge of basic and applied mathematics, while developing skills in the use of numerical and computational methods. The expertise acquired in Applied Mathematics is useful to solve complex problems in the natural, social and applied sciences. Areas of speciality include theoretical chemistry, quantum systems, bioinformatics, fluid mechanics, finance, computer science, environmental modeling and environmetrics.
Our department is active in traditional areas of applied mathematics, including theoretical physics, and in new, rapidly developing fields. Profiting from their diverse backgrounds, department members share a common interest in mathematical applications and interdisciplinary research. The tools we use and design include computational & numerical methods, applications of massive parallel computers, or simply pen and paper. Areas of applications are computer algebra, mathematical biology, financial mathematics, materials and biological physics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, theoretical elementary particle physics, and modern applications of quantum and classical field theory.
Discipline specific knowledge is only one of the many benefits of pursuing an undergraduate degree. However, this knowledge alone is not enough to prepare you for entering the world of work. You will discover that the content of your degree does not restrict your job opportunities.
Being aware of the transferable skills you've developed throughout your studies will better prepare you for entering the job market and allow you to articulate the skills that are so valued by employers.
