Mathematics is designed to convey both appreciation for and ability to use techniques and strategies of mathematical reasoning . In our courses, the mathematical structures and applications that have led to more efficient organization and synthesis of mathematical knowledge are covered.

Everything from coal efficiency to biometrics identification systems to predicting lung disease are studied by WVU mathematicians and statisticians, and you can be a part of that research as well.

Through in-depth instruction, hands-on research and independent projects conducted with award-winning faculty, WVU mathematics students learn to question, experiment and innovate.

Our alumni have gone on to work as mathematicians nationally and internationally, reach high-level management positions in industry, conduct research in a variety of industrial and governmental laboratories and teach in higher education.
