EXPLORING MATHEMATICS SOLUTIONS FOR REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS.
The Texas Tech Mathematics and Statistics Department is dedicated to balancing research
and high-quality education in order to produce top-level graduates in our field. We
are also committed to giving students the chance to explore different areas of application
in order to best equip them with marketable skills upon graduation. A degree in mathematics
will give you the tools you need to analyze data, explore creative solutions, and
impact organizations as they explore modern challenges.

Because of the complexities of data analysis, algorithm development, and assessment of market trends, the opportunities for mathematicians span virtually every job market. Some possible careers are:
BIOSTATISTICIANCreate, analyze, and translate healthcare data in order to improve methods, processes, and research efforts in the medical field.
OPERATIONS RESEARCH ANALYSTStudy the behaviors and systems of an organization in order to advise the company on how to improve manufacturing processes, properly allocate resources, and maximize efficiency.
FINANCIAL QUANTITATIVE ANALYSTDesign and implement research systems in order to improve the financial management and assessment of an organization.
As a Mathematics major, I've had the opportunity to learn from a faculty of experienced Ph.D.s and passionate researchers. This program gives you a professional edge because it allows you to go deeper into the inner workings behind every qualitative field out there.”
