The degree program is quite flexible. Each student must complete the standard two years required of all students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. In the last two years, the student is required to follow broad guidelines, but may tailor a program to get great depth in one area or to learn the fundamentals of several areas.

131 credits - minimum number required for graduation. |

^{[1]}First-year students should
select from CHEM 152,
BIOL 201,
or
MSE 102 for science elective I.
MSE 102 and ENGR 209 cannot both
be taken
for credit. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[2]}Science elective II should be
selected from the following:
| ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[3]}The one required 3-credit APMA elective is to be chosen from the
following:
| ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[4]}Two general education electives may be replaced by unrestricted
electives with advisor approval. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[5]}Technical electives may be chosen from any third- or fourth-year
technical courses in the University. Some second-year courses (biology
or chemistry) may be chosen subject to advisor approval. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[6]}The fourth core elective may be replaced by a science or technical
elective or APMA/CS 202. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[7]}A required part of the degree program is a minor consisting of at
least four 3-credit courses from University offerings in a single field
in which mathematics is used extensively. Approval must be obtained for
the minor program from the advisor by the beginning of the third year.
Minor areas might be physics, computer science, various engineering
fields, biomathematics, operations research, etc. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

^{[8]}Students contemplating graduate work in applied mathematics or a
mathematics-based discipline such as statistics are strongly encouraged
to take MATH 531. |
