Alumni and Friends: We'd love to stay in contact. We will be making a department newsletter this fall and it'd be great to hear from you with any updates you have. If you are an alumni, include what year you graduated. Send the Department of Mathematics your updates at - we look forward to hearing from you!
We are committed to excellence in teaching, research, service and outreach. We provide a foundation in Mathematics and Mathematics Education for all students. Our programs lead to discovery, analysis and dissemination of mathematics, and mathematics education. We provide students with a full appreciation of mathematics and its applications. Our goal is to equip the graduate with the tools necessary to fully participate in a technological society and a competitive global environment.

Whether you're interested in theoretical or applied mathematics, CMU's math programs will help you build problem-solving skills for a wide range of careers. Working with faculty, you'll apply the equations and theories you've learned in class and could present your research results at the annual campuswide Student Research and Creative Endeavors Exhibition. Student organizations, such as Kappa Mu Epsilon, also prepare you for the professional world.​

Mathematicians work in the federal government and in private science and engineering research companies. They may work on teams with engineers, scientists and other professionals.
