Mathematical Concepts in Engineering
The concentration in mathematical concepts of engineering is designed for students who seek a strong foundation in mathematics to support their studies in engineering. Combining a core foundation in the quantitative and analytical skills found in the field of mathematics with related skills in engineering fields, the program provides students with a solid mathematical background well-suited for multiple career paths.
- Students must complete a minimum of 21 credit hours which includes 12 upper division hours for this concentration.
- All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.00) or higher.
- Students must complete a minimum of 6 upper division (300-400 level) hours offered by the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
- Students must have completed MAT 265 or MAT 270 with a "C" or higher prior to enrolling in the certificate program.
