The undergraduate program in Mathematical Sciences with an option in Applied Statistics prepares students for the application of mathematics to designing an experiment, sampling and data collection, statistical modeling, and analytical work in industry or government. Statistical techniques are widely used in the area of business marketing, medicine and public health, developmental disabilities, education, political science and many other areas. NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences is one of the few departments in New Jersey with a strong program in Applied Statistics.

Majors: The undergraduate curriculum provides students with training in a broad range of mathematical techniques, problem formulation and problem solving strategies. Students learn about the many facets of data analysis through courses in sampling, regression, experimental design, time series analysis and simulation. A strong background in Computer Science and programming languages make our students even more marketable as applied statisticians.

Double Majors: Students may earn a second major in addition to their primary major in Mathematical Sciences. Contact the Department of Mathematical Sciences for a list of appropriate courses to complete a double major. For general rules about double majors, see Degree Options in the Academic Policies and Procedures section of this catalog.

Contact the Department of Mathematical Sciences for a list of appropriate courses to complete a double major with the major in Mathematical Sciences with an option in Applied Statistics. For general rules about double majors, see Degree Options in the Academic Policies and Procedures section of this catalog.

Curriculum: The curriculum described below is for students who entered NJIT in the Fall of 2002 or later. Students who entered NJIT before that date have been moved into this new program and should consult their faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences if they have any questions regarding this new curriculum.

1
B.S. in Mathematical Sciences with an Option in Applied Statistics 126 credit minimum 9
 
B.S. in Mathematical Sciences with an Option in Applied Statistics (126 credit minimum)

Prerequisite grade requirement for Mathematical Sciences majors:
Students are required to earn a grade of C or better in all Math courses.

FIRST YEAR:
1st Semester: (15 credits)

This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load.

All students are required to satisfy the General University Requirements (GUR). All GUR courses and additional mathematics, technical, and free electives are to be selected in consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Refer to the General University Requirements section of this catalog for further information on electives.

Electives

All electives should be selected after consultation with a Mathematical Sciences faculty advisor. Any NJIT course at or above the 100 level may be used as a technical or free elective; except a technical elective is a course that has a significant mathematical and/or scientific content. All elective courses are to be chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Co-op Courses
In Mathematical Sciences, the co-op courses, Math 310 and Math 410, bear degree credit and count as technical or free electives, subject to approval by a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
