Mathematical Sciences

Logical analysis, precise measurements, forecasting trends and engineering problems of all sorts have a common thread – mathematics. And math has become an even more powerful tool in the digital age with modern computers and software. Our programs prepare students for graduate study, teaching, and careers in business or industry.

EMU offers a engineering program designed to teach critical thinking skills and prepare you to be part of an inter-connected world through cross-cultural study, an emphasis on sustainability, and using your technical skills to serve the common good.

Small classes with professors who are mentors

Most major courses have fewer than 15 students, so you’ll find professors who are accessible in a way that could not happen at a larger school. EMU professors are mentors who teach valuable skills, of course, but they also make special efforts to relate it to life — and to God’s call for Christian service.

The faculty offices, labs and classrooms are located in the Suter Science Center.
