Applied and Computational Mathematics is the newly redesigned Applied Mathematics track in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The student with an interest in mathematics and computer science and in some of the overlapping disciplines of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics is urged to major in Applied and Computational Mathematics.

To qualify for this track, a student must satisfactorily complete with a grade of C or better each of the following courses in this suggested four-year schedule. Changes to the standard program must be approved by the department.
