The Department of Mathematics provides the mathematical foundation for Embry-Riddle’s degree programs, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Computational Mathematics degree and two minors, Applied Mathematics and Computational Mathematics.

Virtually every Embry-Riddle student — whether training to be a pilot, engineer, scientist, or manager — will pass through the Department of Mathematics while earning a degree. The flexibility of the Computational Mathematics degree allows well-prepared students to pursue dual majors, increasing their career options and enhancing their marketability to potential employers. Some students will gain foundational math skills, while others pursue innovative programs in pure and applied mathematics. The degree in Computational Mathematics allows students to blend mathematical theory and computational techniques to address problems that arise in a variety of scientific disciplines.
