Department of Mathematics


Department Chair: Dr. Jared Bunn, Assistant Professor, Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics offers foundational and advanced coursework essential to successful progress in all of Florida Poly’s degree programs, undergraduate and graduate. The department is pleased to offer one of Florida Poly’s newest degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Engineering Mathematics.

Florida Common Prerequisites

Students who started as freshmen at FPU (native students) must complete general education requirements and the following courses to enter the degree program as a junior:

  • COP 2271C - Introduction to Computation and Programming Credits: 3
  • MAC 2311 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus 1 Credits: 3
  • MAC 2312 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus 2 Credits: 3
  • MAC 2313 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus 3 Credits: 3
  • MAP 2302 - Differential Equations Credits: 3

Any of the following:

  • CHM 2045/2045 L - Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 1 Laboratory Credits: 4
  • PHY 2048/2048L - Physics 1 and Physics 1 Laboratory Credits: 4

Transfer students must meet general education requirements and satisfy the following Florida State Common Prerequisites to enter the degree program as a junior:

COP XXXX

& MAC X311

& MAC X312

& MAC X313

& BSC XXXX/XXXXL

  • or CHM XXXX/XXXXL

  1.  a scientific programming course designed for computer science majors
  2.  one laboratory based science course designed for science majors

NOTE that all universities require a ‘C’ grade or better for admission.

 Academic Learning Compact

Florida Polytechnic University’s Academic Learning Compact describes what students, who follow the major’s study plan, will know and be able to do. These are listed as core student learning outcomes.

College:

Engineering

Program:

Engineering Mathematics

Purpose of the Program:

The Engineering Mathematics Bachelor of Science degree program at Florida Polytechnic University is designed to focus on the use of Math in the analysis and evaluation of engineering problems and scientific applications. Engineering math offers a unique program in which students acquire the in-depth understanding of the concepts based on defined mathematical principles and theoretical derivations, while practicing its real world applications. The engineering mathematics program is proposed to fill gaps in current engineering programs, specifically how to use mathematical principles to provide innovative solutions to problems of industrial value.

Graduates of the program will demonstrate the following:

Graduates of the Engineering Mathematics program will demonstrate the following:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
