Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences

The IUP Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences gives students the tools necessary to organize and analyze data while also providing the theoretical background of the topics that will help students better understand them.

The department offers classes in a friendly and supportive environment that will both challenge and engage students who have an interest in the fields of mathematics and/or computer science.

The valuable skills learned in the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences will translate well to the working world, as graduates have the ability to work in myriad of occupations in both the public and private sector, including engineering, economics, information technology, and education.

Students will also gain the knowledge and information background to help them continue on in graduate school, toward master’s and doctoral degrees.
