Applied Mathematics: Solid Mechanics and Vibrations Option B.S.
What is the solid mechanics and vibrations option in applied mathematics?
This option in the applied mathematics degree program combines a foundation in mathematics with coursework designed to give students a fundamental understanding of how materials respond to forces large and small. Students completing this program will be prepared for graduate study in applied mathematics or work in a variety of industries that use material science.
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.
