**Undergraduate: Applied Mathematics **

Do you love solving challenging problems through careful, step-by-step, logical analysis?

Applied mathematics might be the major for you! Regardless of the career path you choose, the ability to define and formulate problems, find solutions, and communicate your results is critical. It also provides excellent preparation for graduate programs in engineering, science, business, and medicine.

The mathematics major is broad and flexible. A bachelor's degree in mathematics will prepare you for jobs in statistics, actuarial science, mathematical modeling, cryptography, mathematics education, as well as for graduate school leading to a research career in engineering, mathematics or statistics. A strong background in mathematics is also necessary for research in many areas of computer science and social science. The flexibility of the major allows the student to choose a variety of courses in a secondary area.

KMITL’s 4 year curriculum offers a foundation in fundamental theory and

provides the tools and methods to apply this knowledge to real world problems.

The graduate will also strengthen their character for the greater benefit of the nation.

KMITL’s department of mathematics offers 3 concentrations:

**Mathematics**- concentrate on advanced mathematics, develop research in mathematics and applied mathematics.**Industrial Mathematics**- focus on using mathematical models to solve problems in insurance, financial and investment markets, communication systems, and production planning.**Information Mathematics**- solve problems in information systems and business.

Students wishing to earn Master’s degree may apply for our accelerated program.

KMITL offers a program where you can complete both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in just 5 years.

After graduation, students may pursue careers as an analyst, programmer, researcher or mathematician.**Graduate: Master’s in Applied Mathematics - 2 year program**

The student can gain a broad and deep knowledge in applied mathematics.

A thesis is required and 2 sets of the subjects that are required.

1. Applied Mathematics and Industry

2. Algebra and Analysis

While a master's might whet your appetite for further study, graduates are likely to be in demand for a range of jobs, from banking and IT to meteorology and engineering.

Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Engineering, or another related field. **Ph.D in Applied Mathematics - 3 year program**

The general aim of the doctoral program in mathematics is to prepare qualified graduate students to become productive workers in industry or government, or academic research scholars capable of communicating their knowledge to students and to the mathematical community. The program is planned to develop in the student a fundamental understanding of certain basic fields of mathematics, a deep understanding of a major field of interest, the ability to formulate and recognize significant research problems, and the ability to analyze problems, reach solutions, and transmit ideas to others.
