Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science

Did you know the computer industry employs more mathematicians than any other field? That’s because problems in computer science are often solved with mathematical methods. As we become increasingly dependent on computers and other means of information processing, the need for people trained in mathematics and computer science is expected to grow exponentially – especially since computer technology is embedded in many products, services and systems, in virtually every industry.

When you have math and computer science expertise, your employment opportunities are plentiful and include: 

  • Internet service providers; web search portals; and data processing, hosting, and related services firms
  • Government, computer and electronic product manufacturers, insurance companies, financial institutions, and universities
  • Artificial intelligence, biomedical information systems, computer design and engineering, computer networking, gaming systems, information technology, search engines, systems and software engineering, and computerized package distribution systems

If these career opportunities excite and inspire you, then LTU’s Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science might be the right program for you. Broad and intensive, the program prepares you for a wide variety of career paths, or graduate school, as you develop a deeper understanding of math and how it relates to problem solving in computer science – more rigorously than either mathematics or computer science alone.
