Department/College Description
The School of Mathematical Sciences has 65 faculty members and four administrative staff members. There are about 180 undergraduate students in the school’s three undergraduate programs: Applied Mathematics, Computational Mathematics, and Applied Statistics. In addition, there are 25 students in its Master’s degree program in Applied and Computational Mathematics. SMS faculty members are also involved in the MS and PhD programs in Astrophysical Sciences and Technology. The school offers mathematics courses for students from every RIT program.

Over the past decade, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has transitioned from a department focused almost entirely on teaching into the School of Mathematical Sciences, a division of the College of Science that promotes both teaching and research. Many SMS faculty members are involved with two research centers within the College of Science: the Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation,, and SMS faculty members participate in many other research centers across the college and university. We have recently hired many applied mathematicians in the fields of mathematical biology, computational physics, general relativity, fluid dynamics, and mathematical imaging; and we are developing a PhD program in Modeling and Computation.
