Applied Mathematics: Dynamics and Control Option B.S.
Program Overview
What is the dynamics and control option in applied mathematics?
The dynamics and control option in the applied mathematics degree program combines a broad foundation in mathematics with coursework in physics, statistics, and areas of electrical and computer engineering such as dynamics and control systems. This program prepares students for work in industry or graduate study in fields that rely heavily on applied mathematics.
Why study applied mathematics at UNH?
This program allows you to choose a specific interest and pursue it alongside accomplished mathematicians, statisticians and educators who have won prestigious honors including a Grammy Award and a MacArthur “genius” grant. Upperlevel mathematics classes tend to be small, so you’ll enjoy close connections to professors as they delve into the intricacies of advanced ideas. An accelerated master’s program is available in applied mathematics, allowing students to complete their master’s degree early. This department has produced many winners of the prestigious Department of Defense SMART Scholarship.
