# Applied & Computational Mathematics Concentration

The concentration in Applied and Computational Mathematics is intended for any student who enjoys mathematics, problem solving, and applications to solving practical problems in business, government, and science. The concentration is intended especially for students seeking a career as quantitative analysts, computational scientists, and applied mathematicians, and for those thinking of continuing the study of applied or discrete mathematics at the graduate level.
