The CAM strongly supports, funds, and encourages innovative research by undergraduate scholars. Students are given the opportunity to apply mathematics to “real-world” problems. Through industry collaboration, the university can provide its undergraduate students with the mathematical training and communication skills needed for careers as problem solvers in the mathematical sciences and business communities. Past student research projects have received awards, local and national grants, and have been presented at conferences nationwide.
Students work closely with faculty and staff, as well as corporate partners, to define and pursue problems in all areas of mathematics. The faculty members of the CAM are experts in numerical analysis, actuarial science, mathematical biology, financial math, queuing theory, statistics, inverse problems in imaging, digital imaging, knot theory, and tornado genesis modeling.
