Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics

In the Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department at Mines we tie together foundational research and teaching of Computational and Applied Mathematics as well as Statistics with interdisciplinary applications in the areas of Bio, Geo, Data, and Risk.

Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics


Welcome to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences!

Mathematics plays a vital role in the education of all students at Colorado School of Mines, both through the advanced training of its own majors and graduate students and through the support it provides to all the engineering and science disciplines.

The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics takes pride in its teaching innovations, its contributions to research across campus, and in the quality of excellence in applied mathematics and statistics among its alumni.
