An Applied Mathematics bachelor’s degree offers very diverse employment opportunities in research, space and astronomy, healthcare, engineering and applied mathematics. Graduates of Applied Mathematics major can find opportunities as engineers/Mathematicians /Software Engineer in national laboratories, high-tech (GE, GM, Raytheon, Harris, Intel, IBM, Google, Mosaic etc.), Department of Defense, Air force and Military, NASA, Higher Education (MS or PhD programs), regional, state and federal government agencies.
Jobs using mathematics, statistics, and operations research are projected to grow by 33% nationwide between 2016 to 2026.
Meet the Faculty
Florida Poly’s Department of Mathematics faculty collaborate with colleagues in computer science, computer and electrical engineering, and data science on research associated with the University’s Advanced Mobility Institute (AMI), an institute dedicated to testing and certification methodologies for autonomous vehicles.
This interdisciplinary relationship provides unique opportunities for students to apply mathematical principles to engineering problems in real world and research-based settings.
Florida Poly’s 90,000-square-foot Barnett Applied Research Center (BARC) was created as a research hub for the Central Florida region to become a magnet for high-tech development around the school. The Barnett Applied Research Center houses research and teaching laboratories, student design spaces, conference rooms, and faculty offices. The building also provides study areas for graduate students, and a small amount of administrative space.
SunTrax is a large-scale, cutting-edge facility dedicated to the research, development, and testing of emerging transportation technologies in safe and controlled environments. Many of the opportunities are related to tolling, ITS, and automated and connected vehicles. Additionally, the entire site is a connected environment for testing Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications.
