The School of Mathematical Sciences is recognized for its contributions to research and applications of mathematical and statistical science, and also known for expertise in mathematical and computational modeling, data science, and scientific inference. Since Mathematics is at the root of many social, technical, medical, and environmental issues faced by society today, we equip our graduates with a deep understanding of mathematical and statistical principles, tools to apply those skills to real-world problems, and the ability to express complex ideas in everyday language. We provide our students with research and experiential learning opportunities, and nurture curiosity and creativity.
While providing a solid collegiate math education to all RIT undergraduates, we also offer 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.
