Applied Mathematics Concentration

This concentration is recommended for students interested in inherently interdisciplinary subjects which apply to many problems that arise in the physical, biological, economic, social, and network sciences as well as in engineering. Applied Mathematics provides a set of qualitative and quantitative skills and knowledge for use in these fields. 

Applied Mathematics has a profound impact on our daily lives. Whether it is weather forecasts, genetic or neural networks, search engines, climate research, evolution of species, stock market and finance, ground or air transportation, architecture, or movie recommendations, none of these would work the way they do without algorithms and tools from the mathematical sciences. The concentration in Applied Mathematics allows students to investigate the mathematics of problems arising in the physical, biological, economic, social, and network sciences as well as in engineering.

Applied Mathematics appeals to people with a variety of different interests, ranging from those with a desire to obtain a good quantitative background for use in some future career, to those who are interested in the basic techniques and approaches in themselves.

Pre-Actuarial Math Concentration

This concentration is recommended for students interested in a career as an Actuary and who plan on taking the actuarial exams.

An actuary evaluates the financial impact of risk by evaluating the likelihood of future events, designing creative ways to reduce the likelihood of undesirable events, and decreasing the impact of undesirable events that do occur.

Actuaries work for insurance companies, government, and consulting firms. In the actuarial profession, you can earn while you learn. Many students receive on-the-job training while enrolled in the examination process. Employers are generally supportive and may give students study time during working hours, pay exam fees, and award raises for each exam passed. However, most employers prefer to hire people who have started the series of examinations on their own and have already passed at least two or three. 

The 15 credits of upper-level courses must include:
MATH 3400THEORY OF INTEREST3
MATH/CSCI 4310PROBABILISTIC OPERATIONS RESEARCH MODELS3

Operations Research Concentration

This concentration is recommended for students interested in a career as an operations research analyst or in pursuing a graduate degree in operations research or a related field.

The broad real-world applicability of operations research makes it an attractive choice for math majors. In operations research courses, students get a solid background in mathematical modeling of decision-making problems, algorithms for solving different types of these problems, as well as experience using appropriate software tools.

Operations research is the application of advanced analytical methods to enable better decision making. A plethora of problems may be solved using operations research; among these are (1) determining the route a delivery truck should take in order to make all deliveries while traveling the fewest number of miles; (2) determining the best location for a new facility such as a fire station; (3) scheduling airline flights and crew; and (4) determining the optimal distribution of bicycles in a bike sharing system.  Operations research includes problem-solving methods such as deterministic and stochastic optimization, machine learning, and simulation.

Statistics Concentration

This concentration is recommended for students interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of statistics, particularly those students who are interested in pursuing graduate study in statistics or biostatistics.

Statistics, the study of data, is of growing importance. Students who have the skills to properly collect, analyze, interpret, and present data are in high demand around the country.

The objectives of this concentration are: (1) to gain an understanding of the mathematical underpinnings of statistics; (2) to use appropriate statistical modeling to solve practical problems; (3) to develop an understanding of how to use statistical software; (4) to communicate statistical results to non-statisticians.

Statistics is used in many fields, including biology, sociology, psychology, medicine, economics, quality control, and sports. This diversity, along with the growing need for people with statistical knowledge, makes it an attractive choice for mathematics students.

The 15 credits of upper-level courses must include:

Computational Mathematics Concentration

This concentration is recommended for students interested in computational science, particularly those students who are interested in pursuing graduate study in applied and computational mathematics at the graduate level.

A concentration in computational mathematics may be useful in a wide range of areas including science, engineering, government, healthcare, business, and information technology. The specialization in computational mathematics is designed for students with a strong interest in Mathematics and in mathematical applications to areas of science and engineering. By choosing elective courses carefully, students completing this specialization will be prepared for a career in a variety of computing and/or engineering areas. Students will also be prepared to continue on to a graduate program in applied mathematics.

Computational mathematics involves the use of math and computers to solve problems and predict outcomes. The concentration in computational mathematics is intended for any student who is interested in applications to solving practical and physical problems in engineering, science, and business. This concentration is also recommended for students who wish to work in the research and development area of industry. The concentration is especially intended for students seeking a career as quantitative analysts, computational scientists, and applied mathematicians, and for those thinking of continuing the study of applied and computational mathematics at the graduate level.

The 15 credits of upper-level courses must include:

Pure Mathematics Concentration

What do UNO Alumni Chief Operating Officer Matt Culek of Citadel Securities, Senior Industrial Logician Andrew Gacek of Rockwell Collins, Microsoft Data Scientist Daniel Miller and University of Toronto Post-doc Melissa Emory have in common? They sought out the strongest foundation in mathematics available here at UNO, taking the courses required for the Pure Mathematics Concentration.

This concentration is strongly recommended for students interested in a pursuing a graduate degree in mathematics, but as indicated above, is highly recommended for any student interested in getting the most out of their mathematics major.

Students pursuing a graduate degree are expected to have a strong foundation based in analysis, topology, and abstract algebra. This is what this concentration provides.   

Challenging yourself has other advantages. Matt Culek credits his ability to trouble-shoot proposals brought to him by quantitative analysts at Citadel Securities to the habits of thought developed in his undergraduate course in number theory here at UNO.

15 credits of upper-level courses in this concentration must include the following 3 courses:9
LINEAR ALGEBRA (3 credits)
ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I (3 credits)
MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS I (3 credits)
