Course Catalog

Courses Offered


Tech’s mathematics department offers courses in eight subfields of mathematics. The middle digit of each mathematics course number specifies the sub‐field in which that course belongs. The middle digits and the subfields they represent are:

1—operations research and numerical methods

2—discrete mathematics

3—applied analysis


5—modern algebra


7—real analysis (theory)

8—probability, statistics, stochastic processes

Thus, 415 is a course in operations research, etc. The middle digit 0 is used for the basic mathematics courses. The only exception to this system is MATH 581, the standard college number for directed studies.
