Discovery begins here! Mathematics is the language of the sciences, and our Mathematicians (and this includes students too) create new technology, discover new ideas, and develop computational algorithms that have profound  impact on science.  In our department, students have access to research, competitive internships and career training opportunities that will prepare them for the demands of current and future society.  Our highly enthusiastic faculty make our classrooms discovery incubators.
