Mathematical Sciences

Worldwide, companies need advanced mathematicians to collect, analyze and model data. That’s why our Mathematical Sciences degree is rooted in both theory and practice. You’ll learn calculus, fractals and trigonometry, and then you’ll practice real-world applications, like pricing and environmental management. You’ll gain the analytical skills and quantitative tools needed to work in a range of in-demand fields, from air traffic control to robotics.

As a Mathematical Sciences major, you will graduate with a broad knowledge of business by completing courses that are part of the Business Administration minor. You will also have the option of complementing your Mathematical Sciences major with a Business Administration major, or any other approved Bentley major, by using some of your free electives to take additional courses.

Chaos, Fractals and Dynamics (MA 205)

This course introduces basic concepts of dynamical systems through lectures, slides, films and computer experimentation. Students predict system behavior based on mathematical calculations and on observation of computer results (no computer programming experience is necessary). Topics include iteration of functions, Julia sets, Mandelbrot sets, chaos and fractals.

From Forest Street to State Street

Experiential learning is quickly becoming a standard in curriculum at higher educational institutions. Bentley’s interactive education and an internship at State Street gave Lauren Mason ’17 great relevant classroom material to use in the work world.

Making the most of a second chance

A math whiz who grew up in South Windsor, Conn., Vincent Bacho had trouble envisioning what career his talents were best suited for. When he visited the Bentley campus and learned more about its business curriculum, though, he discovered a great match.

STEM-designated major

Bentley’s Mathematical Sciences degree program has a major code that is classified by the U.S. government as “STEM designated.” International students on F-1 visas may apply to USCIS for a 24-month extension of the standard 12-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) period, which if approved would result in a total of 36 months of U.S. work authorization to intern or work in the U.S. to gain experiential training after completing their degree.
