General University Requirements and Electives

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.

Co-op Courses

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

 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.

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.
