Mathematics is at the root of many social, technical, medical, and environmental issues faced by society today. RIT's School of Mathematical Sciences equips its graduates with deep understanding of math principles, a toolbox for applying those skills to real-world problems, and the ability to express complex ideas in a way that laypeople can understand.
The School of Mathematical Sciences provides a solid collegiate math education to every RIT undergraduate but continues its offerings to include high-level specializations such as statistical forecasting, digital encryption, and mathematical modeling.
- Applied Mathematics focuses on the study and solution of problems that can be mathematically analyzed across many industrial fields and research disciplines.
- Applied Statistics and Actuarial Science provides students with a strong foundation in mathematical and statistical methodology, its applications, the use of statistical computing packages, and the skills to communicate the results of statistical analysis.
- Computational Mathematics prepares students for a mathematical career that incorporates extensive computer science skills.
