Welcome to the UTC Department of Mathematics. We are located in the Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science building on the UTC campus and offer degrees at both the Undergraduate and Graduate level. The Department of Mathematics offers two Undergraduate degree programs, the B.A. in Mathematics and the B.S. in Applied Mathematics. The B.A. is the traditional liberal arts degree with a major in mathematics. The B.S. is a degree program designed to respond to the growing influence of mathematics in business and industrial practices. Students must select a concentration in either general mathematics or actuarial science. Students wishing to pursue a career in Mathematics Education can also earn a B.S. in Applied Mathematics in conjunction with the UTeaChattanooga program. We offer a M.S. degree in Mathematics with concentrations in Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, Pre-Professional and Education for those students wishing to continue their education at the Graduate level.
The Department of Mathematics has 20 full time faculty members holding professorial rank, all of whom hold the Ph.D. degree. The graduate faculty has 11 members and their research interests span a wide variety of mathematical interests. These include linear algebra and matrix theory, modern algebra, graph theory, numerical analysis, functional analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations and difference equations, operations research, statistics and mathematics education. The Department is highly active in research as demonstrated by publications in national and international refereed journals, invited and contributed presentations at national and international conferences, service on editorial boards, and refereeing and reviewing activities.
The department currently has over 50 declared majors, an active Pi Mu Epsilon fraternity, and a weekly colloquium series. We also host workshops for area Middle and High School Mathematics teachers each summer and work with Blue Cross Blue Shield each spring to host a poster contest for area Middle and High School students.
