Engineering Mathematics Major

See the Engineering Mathematics Major Sheet to view the required courses for this major.

Asbury’s Engineering Mathematics program prepares students with a B.A. degree to apply for a master’s program in Engineering in one of following areas:


  • Install, maintain, and provide technical support for biomedical equipment.
  • Combine engineering principles with sciences to design and create equipment, devices, computer systems, and software.
  • Job Examples: create artificial hips, knees and other joints, ultrasound, MRI and other medical imaging techniques, use engineered organisms for chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing.


Engineering Management

  • Plan, design, and oversee projects.
  • Manage finances.
  • Supervise engineering teams.
  • Coordinate communication with engineers and other personnel.


Industrial Engineering

  • Devise efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service.
  • Job Examples: shortening lines (or queueing theory) at a theme park, streamlining an operating room, distributing products worldwide (also referred to as supply chain management), and manufacturing cheaper and more reliable automobiles.


Materials & Energy Science Engineering

  • Involved in the research, design & development of materials to advance technology and products.
  • Develop solutions for improving energy consumption and use.
  • Engaged in all phases of material development (from selecting raw materials to creating and testing the final product).
  • Job Examples: develop computer chips, aircraft wings, golf clubs and biomedical devices.


What is the Engineering Mathematics major like?

In both introductory and upper division classes at Asbury University, the small class sizes ensure professors are available to answer your questions, leaving you ready for the steps ahead. An Engineering Mathematics major can expect to take courses like:

  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Applied Math
  • Data Science


What opportunities will I have outside of class?

  • In math modeling competitions, such as COMAP and SCUDEM, you apply what you learn in class to real-world situations. Students have researched the optimization of emergency evacuations and many other topics. 
  • Many Asbury students do internships with highly respected companies, and every year AU receives compliments about the quality, knowledge and work ethic of our students. In house, our Engineering Math majors are using and gaining skills in collaborative internships, alongside chemists and biologists.
  • You can request that a professor work with you directly as you prepare to present your research at the annual SEARCH Symposium and in other conferences across the nation. Some of the recent research our students have done:
    • “Implementing Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles” Eric ’19
    • “Modeling Population Growth of Linguistic Groups” Bo ’20
