Mathematics

Mathematics forms the backbone of many scientific fields. It provides the theory and methods essential to understanding the fundamentals of such areas as physics, engineering, and computer science. With a firm grasp of mathematics, you’ll have the widest possible base from which to launch explorations of related disciplines.

The School of Engineering's BS in Mathematics program prepares you for success. Our students benefit not only from a full spectrum of math courses but from hands-on experience in the real world. We provide this through unique internship opportunities at organizations such as MIT Lincoln Laboratories, Verizon, Credit Suisse First Boston, New York Hall of Science, and the CIA.

Our students have the freedom to pursue varied and exciting careers, math majors can become software designers, biostatisticians, industrial engineers, imaging scientists, aerospace mathematicians, and economists. Today, mathematicians find rewarding work in a wide range of companies, including investment banks and government organizations like the National Security Agency.

Curriculum

  • Command of core areas in both pure and applied mathematics, including but not limited to real and complex analysis, linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations.
  • Mastery of a particular applied or engineering field and how mathematics is used in that field.
  • Readiness for a variety of career options following graduation, including, but not limited to graduate study in applied mathematics, engineering, medicine, as well as professional careers in consulting, business & finance, and technology.

The Tandon B.S. in Mathematics program is designed to provide a student with the knowledge and skills needed to both start a career in a mathematically-oriented field and adapt easily to changes in both the field and one’s career directions. The program has the following components:

  • A core set of required fundamental mathematics courses
  • Mathematics electives
  • A cohesive set of courses that focus on a particular field of engineering or applied science. The student works together with their advisor to choose these courses appropriately.

Students must complete 121 credits, as defined below, to graduate from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Please note that the curriculum that follows applies to students who begin classes in the Fall of 2017 or later.  For students who enter the NYU Tandon School of Engineering prior to that date, please refer to the bulletin website: curriculum and typical course schedule for students entering prior to Fall 2017.

The NYU Tandon School of Engineering also offers a Physics and Mathematics, B.S. which is a dual major in both subjects.
