# Applied Mathematics Major: Fluid Dynamics Option (B.S.)

https://ceps.unh.edu/mathematics-statistics/program/bs/applied-mathematics-fluid-dynamics-option

Beginning in the 2022/23 academic year, the Applied Mathematics Major: Fluid Dynamics option will no longer be accepting new students. Current students will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate.

This degree program prepares students for employment and/or graduate study in a variety of fields and research specializations in which mathematics plays a critical role in the solution of important scientific and technological problems.

In all courses used to satisfy the requirements for its major programs, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics requires that a student earn a grade of C- or better and have an overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 in these courses.

• Students recognize common mathematical notations and operations used in mathematics, science and engineering.
• Students can recognize and classify a variety of mathematical models including differential equations, linear and nonlinear systems of algebraic equations, and common probability distributions.
• Students have developed a working knowledge (including notation, terminology, foundational principles of the discipline, and standard mathematical models within the discipline) in at least one discipline outside of mathematics.
• Students are able to extract useful knowledge, both quantitative and qualitative, from mathematical models and can apply that knowledge to the relevant discipline.
