The Department of Applied Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences offers the Applied Mathematics program of the University of Colorado at Boulder through the College of Engineering and Applied Science.


The Applied Mathematics program of the University of Colorado at Boulder is designed to prepare graduates for exciting and diverse professional careers, and for graduate study in a wide variety of disciplines.

Courses at the undergraduate level provide training in a broad range of mathematical techniques and problem­-solving strategies. These courses teach the concepts and methods central to applications of linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, complex variables, and nonlinear dynamics. Since applied mathematicians often are involved in interdisciplinary work, the BS degree requires an in-­depth knowledge of some area of science or engineering where mathematics is used. This knowledge prepares graduates to successfully communicate and cooperate with engineers and scientists. The BS degree also requires knowledge of a programming language and skill in using the computer.

Research Opportunities

The Department of Applied Math offers a broad range of undergraduate research opportunities funded by National Science Foundation grants, and students can gain professional exposure through the student chapter of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) on campus.

Working with faculty, applied math students have developed solutions to a variety of problems in fluids, dynamical systems, data analysis, networks, signal processing, math biology, math education and numerics. Applied math students also worked with faculty to develop the Mathematical Visualization Toolkit, an award­-winning online instructional tool that helps students better visualize calculus concepts.
