Solving today's problems to create a better future
Welcome to the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences
What is the number one career in the nation?
Data scientists are in high demand
Ranked #1 in CareerCast's Best Jobs of 2021, data scientist jobs are expected to grow by 33%. Glassdoor has listed data scientists as among the top three of the 50 Best Jobs in America for the past seven years in a row. From predicting consumer behavior to extracting information from medical images, with ASU's new bachelor of science in data science you will graduate ready for a dynamic career that inspires global change.
Four areas of math and statistics, under one roof
Whether you want to apply math to science or engineering, search for a deeper understanding of theoretical mathematics, develop effective ways to teach mathematics, or make sense of data with statistics, we have something for you.
Experimental investigation of ant traffic under crowded conditions
From humans driving on the highway, to ants running on a trail, the main challenge faced by all collective systems is how to prevent traffic jams in crowded environments. Sebastien Motsch and his team research how ants avoid the formation of traffic jams at high density.
To mask or not to mask? Going out in public during the COVID-19 pandemic
ASU researchers develop a compartmental model for assessing the community-wide impact of mask use by the general public.
Using machine learning methods to develop a short tree-based adaptive classification test
Yi Zheng's study suggests that tree-based adaptive tests have an enormous potential when used to shorten instruments that measure a large variety of constructs.
A top degree program for a rewarding profession
Actuaries are the analytical backbone of our society’s financial security programs. They are also certified professionals who have gone through a series of examinations to obtain a professional designation. As a career, it is consistently ranked among the top professions in terms of work environment, employment outlook, job security, and salary. ASU has been honored with the 2021 and 2018 Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) University Awards, recognizing schools doing exemplary work in preparing students for a career in the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry.
Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging
Equity, inclusion and a sense of belonging are core values of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences. As stated in ASU's charter, our success is measured not by whom we exclude, but rather by whom we include and how they succeed, advancing research and discovery of public value in the mathematical and statistical sciences and broadening access to quality STEM education.
