Engineering Mathematics

(Concurrent Degree)

The program in engineering mathematics at UM-Dearborn provides the student with an opportunity to extend his/her knowledge of the language of the scientist and to become more proficient in the application of mathematical reasoning to the formulation and solution of scientific problems in engineering. This program recognizes the ever-increasing demand that the changing physical and economic world imposes on the engineering profession. This program seeks to make available to the students the knowledge with which they will be better able to understand and to create the complex mathematical models that represent the world.

A current CECS undergraduate student majoring in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering may pursue a concurrent Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degree in Engineering Mathematics. This makes it possible for an engineering student to earn two degrees at the same time: a BSE degree in Engineering Mathematics and a BSE degree in their principal engineering major. Both degrees must be earned at the same time.

The Engineering Mathematics degree requires a minimum of 14 credit hours of course work in advanced mathematics beyond the 16 credits of mathematics already required in the degree program of the student’s principal engineering major. Approved courses for the BSE in Engineering Mathematics concurrent degree include:   

MATH 404Dynamical Systems3
MATH 405Integral Equations3
MATH 412First Course in Modern Algebra3
MATH 413Linear Algebra 13
MATH 420Stochastic Processes 23
MATH 425Mathematical Statistics3
MATH 451Advanced Calculus I3
MATH 452Advanced Calculus II3
MATH 454Fourier and Boundary3
MATH 462Mathematical Modeling3
MATH 472Intro to Numerical Analysis3
MATH 473Matrix Computation3
MATH 513Linear Algebra3
MATH 555Func of a Complex Var with App3

Credit for only one from MATH 413 and MATH 513.


Credit for only one from MATH 420 and IMSE 506.

The following CECS graduate courses may also be used towards the Engineering Mathematics degree: ECE 555, ECE 560, ECE 567, ECE 580; IMSE 505, IMSE 506, IMSE 510, IMSE 511; ME 518, ME 519, provided that,

  1. a minimum of 9 hours is taken from the Mathematics department (MATH) courses listed above, and
  2. permission to take a graduate course is granted.
