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.
Slated to be completed by spring 2021, Florida’s facility is a large-scale, cutting-edge facility dedicated to the research, development and testing of emerging transportation technologies in safe and controlled environments. The 400-acre site will include a 2.25-mile long oval track, which will provide an opportunity for high-speed testing, along with a 200-acre infield that will allow for the testing of a multitude of different technologies.
Many of the opportunities are related to tolling, ITS, and automated and connected vehicles. Additionally, the entire site will be a connected environment for the testing of Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications.
