These courses center on the
types of mathematics which are used in industry. They are intended to make the
student an attractive candidate for jobs in which you would work together with
engineers and scientists. There is less emphasis on mathematical rigor, but
this concentration could also serve as preparation for some graduate programs.
In cases where there is an option, the starred course is the recommended one.

You probably realize that being able to program or analyze data will help you get a job in industry. We recommend taking a second semester of computer science (COSC 1030) or Statistics. Consider taking further courses, or even getting a minor in Computer Science or Statistics.
Something you may not realize is that good communication and writing skills will also be important in a technical career. We recommend taking English 4010, Scientific and Technical Writing, to fulfill your WC requirement. Take advantage of opportunities in your classes to improve your writing, and let potential employers know about your skills.
