Minor in Mathematical and Computational Science

The minor in Mathematical and Computational Science is intended to provide an experience of the four constituent areas: Computer Science, Mathematics, Management Science and Engineering, and Statistics. Five basic courses are required:

CS 106X. Programming Methodology and Abstractions (Accelerated)

or CS 106A,B. Programming Methodology

MATH 51. Linear Algebra and Differential Calculus of Several Variables

or MATH 104. Applied Matrix Theory

ENGR 62/MS&E 111. Introduction to Optimization

or MS&E 121. Introduction to Stochastic Modeling

STATS 116. Theory of Probability, and either

STATS 191. Introduction to Applied Statistics

or STATS 200. Introduction to Statistical Inference

In addition to the above, the minor requires three courses from the following, two of which must be in different departments:

CME 108. Introduction to Scientific Computing

CS 103. Mathematical Foundations of Computing

CS 107. Programming Paradigms
