Minor: Applied Mathematics
Offered jointly by: Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Department of Mathematics
Students intending to earn a minor in Applied Mathematics should seek advice and preapproval of their minor academic program from Professor Richard Rand, RHR2@cornell.edu.
Engineering undergraduates affiliated with all Engineering Majors are eligible to participate in the Applied Mathematics minor.
This minor is aimed at providing a focus for students who are interested in applied mathematics.
Students must take MATH 2930, MATH 2940, and at least six (6) courses beyond MATH 2940, to be chosen as follows:
(a) At most one course may be chosen from any one of groups 1, 2, 3, or 4.
(b) At least three courses must be chosen from groups 5 and 6.
(c) At most one 2000-level course may be chosen.
(d) At most one course may be chosen that is offered by the student’s Major department.
