Three-year Applied Math Program is a First
Boston, MA—October 31, 2011—Wentworth Institute of Technology today announced that a new undergraduate program–Applied Mathematics (BSAM)–will launch in the fall of 2012. This program will build upon a strong foundation of existing courses with an expanded focus on its respective discipline. The Applied Math program represents the first time a three-year bachelor’s degree has been offered at the Institute, which will translate into savings for enrolled students. It will provide exciting educational opportunities, address industry needs and student interests, and produce skilled professionals in the workforce as well as be aligned to Wentworth’s three-part education model.
About the Program
In the Applied Mathematics program, students will learn the mathematical principles, techniques and computational tools used in a variety of fields, such as physics, engineering, biology, physiology, chemistry, and economics. Graduates with a fluency in the “language” of applied mathematics are in demand, as it plays a key role in the development of new technologies in a range of areas, from medical imaging to fraud detection. Opportunities for graduates also include positions as software developers, quality assurance engineers, cryptographers, statisticians, data miners, and operations researchers. While the program is designed to be completed in three years, including two semesters of cooperative education employment, a four-year option is also available.
