If you are interested in working as a mathematician in industry, a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Mathematics and Statistics may be the degree you need. Our online industrial mathematics and statistics major's time frame for degree completion varies with each student, but this degree can be attained in four years.
Industrial Mathematics and Statistics Faculty
Department of Mathematical Sciences faculty are committed to helping you succeed. We will help you develop a degree plan that will provide the proper background for your educational and career goals. This includes providing suggestions for relevant opportunities for undergraduate research experiences, internships, and part-time jobs as a tutor or a supplemental instructor.
Our class sizes are small, so your professors are able to provide the personal attention you need to be successful on campus or online. Mathematical Sciences has established a reputable record with respect to student success.
Learning Format for Industrial Mathematics and Statistics Coursework
Our Industrial Mathematics and Statistics Program is designed completed 100% online. You'll be completing reading, homework, tests and projects throughout each semester, with due dates and course schedules depending on what course(s) you take. Industrial Mathematics and Statistics class lectures are recorded and available with Mediasite via Blackboard. Recorded lectures allow you to connect with your professors and other students on your own time, rather than having to be at the computer at a specific time."
When it comes to your general education requirements (that all students in every major have to take), student participation will vary by course and will either be completed at your convenience or you'll need to be on your computer during the actual class time. Our faculty will help you find the courses that will work best for you and your schedule.
- Course sections where recorded and live lectures via Mediasite connect you with professors and other students on your own time are labeled "AW."
- Courses where participation with the professor, other online students and students attending the in-person class on campus is required in real-time are labeled, "SW."
- Courses that are completely online and offered through Blackboard, with no recorded lecture or in-person students are labeled "WW."
Advising for Industrial Mathematics and Statistics Majors
We are committed to helping you complete your degree as efficiently as possible. As an online student, you can call or email your adviser to set up a meeting. You will likely communicate with your adviser regularly while you are working toward your bachelor's degree; but how you meet with your adviser will be determined by you and your adviser. Our faculty care about your success!
