The bachelor of sciences degree program in mathematics at WVU Tech offers rigorous training in four major branches of mathematics; analysis, algebra, topology and geometry, and applied mathematics. Students also obtain solid knowledge in computer science, physics, and other sciences/engineering.

Through a well-constructed curriculum, our graduates will be critical thinkers and problem solvers, will be able to understand concepts, solve problems, and prove theorems in at least three of the four major areas of mathematics; will be able to develop computer programs to implement computational algorithms; and will be able to communicate effectively.

Because WVU Tech is a STEM institution, students are encouraged to supplement their studies in mathematics with courses from engineering and science. We offer small classes and excellent advising by our dedicated, well-educated faculty. Students also have an opportunity to double-major in mathematics and engineering at WVU Tech.

Students who are interested in mathematics, perform well in high school math classes and have high math scores on ACT/SAT exams tend to do well in the math program.
