The departmental faculty advise students. View the list of academic advisors.
Students also can meet with an Health, Arts, and Science advisor (the advisor for the College of HAS is listed below). If a student is unsure who their assigned academic advisor is, please contact the department chairperson or the college’s HAS advisor.
The career of a modern mathematician is similar to the career of many professionals who work in the sciences. Oregon Tech graduates will be prepared for immediate participation in the workforce.
You'll find Applied Mathematics graduates working for:
Graduates with an Oregon Tech Applied Mathematics degree will have knowledge and appreciation of the depth of mathematics, including the connections between different areas of mathematics, and between mathematics and other disciplines. Course work for the bachelor’s degree is intended to provide a solid foundation of mathematical theory and a broad selection of applied work both in and outside mathematics.
The major includes course work in calculus, differential equations, and numerical methods. Students also take a sequence of introductory physics courses and a further sequence in a technical field outside mathematics. This program allows students to pick from a wide variety of courses that interest them in order to fill social science, elective and humanities requirements.
