Applied Mathematics

In Applied Mathematics, Kettering students flex their math muscles to solve current and crucial problems such as:

Not A Bean Counter
  • How can we deliver larger data sets reliably through a communications network?
  • How can we mathematically model the spread of disease in the wake of a bio-terrorist incident?
  • How can we design a series of studies to determine if a drug is safe—avoiding recent problems publicized in the news?

You’ll start to size up and break down complex problems in small classes taught by award-winning faculty members. Classroom study is backed by our top-notch cooperative education program—which puts students to work during their first year on real projects at places like Tillinghast-Towers Perrin, General Motors Acceptance Corp., and Blue Cross Blue Shield. It’s like getting paid to become an expert.

Four concentrations are available:

You may also minor in Applied and Computational Mathematics or Statistics, or pursue a dual degree in Computer Science & Applied Mathematics—a choice that will enhance your marketability in the real world.

Honors Calculus II is available to those students who qualify.
