B.S. Industrial Engineering

Program Description:

Industrial engineering is a profession devoted to the optimization of complex processes and systems that leverages developing integrated systems of people, materials, and facilities in a wide range of organizations that either produce goods or render services. A degree in industrial engineering will allow you to use the information and techniques from physical, mathematical, biological, behavioral, and engineering sciences to plan, control, design, and manage complex organizations and systems

Industrial engineers use their skills to evaluate the results from systems and processes to create new ones.

Focal Areas:

A B.S. in industrial engineering provides students with an opportunity to apply their engineering, mathematical, and knowledge of science to design systems (production or processes) and solve engineering problems. Students learn to work in teams, communicate effectively, design and conduct experiments, and utilize current engineering tools. Future industrial engineers gain an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities as they examine contemporary issues and the impact of engineering solutions on the global workplace. Perhaps most importantly, students embrace learning, so that they can continue to augment their industrial engineering skills throughout their careers. The B.S. in Industrial Engineering will be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Quote:

“Industrial engineering can open many doors for you. It prepares you to handle a variety of situations as well as to teach you how to adapt to different types of jobs and positions,” Ernesto Aguilar, First-year industrial engineer major said.

B.S. Mathematics

Program Description:

The B.S. in Mathematics is a four-year undergraduate program that provides students with a deeper understanding of modern mathematics, encourages their interest in research, and prepares them for the workforce in a range of analytical fields.

Students can use their background in mathematics as a gateway to other fields such as physics, computer science, statistics, economics, business, finance, medicine, or law. Majors in this field are expected to acquire a broad background in both pure and applied mathematics while also learning how to analyze problems and develop problem-solving abilities to overcome obstacles in a variety of areas in the applied sciences.

As a mathematician, you will be expected to have great analytical and logical thinking skills. A B.S. in Mathematics will help you develop skillsets in risk analysis, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of statistics and quantitative data and research. A mathematics degree covers major areas in pure mathematics complemented by extensive exposure to mathematical applications in statistics, operations research, and actuarial science.

Focal Areas:

The B.S. in Mathematics seeks to engage students with all branches of mathematics. Students will delve deeply into algebra, statistics, calculus, geometry, logic, number theory and topology.

Quote:

“I have always loved math. We have minimized the importance of math altogether, so I want to earn this degree to foment its importance in the country,” said Virginia Portilla, First-year mathematics major.

Take Courses Like:

  • Contemporary Mathematics
  • Calculus II
  • Partial Differential Equations
  • Numerical Analysis
  • Mathematical Statistics
