The importance of problem-solving

In the UNE School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, we emphasize the importance of problem-solving and communication skills.

Our programs integrate theory, technology, and experimentation, combining cutting-edge teaching practices with modern, professional techniques.

As a student, you’ll gain expertise in mathematical and computer-based modeling for analysis, prediction, and decision making, and receive training in lab techniques, instrumentation, and computational platforms. You’ll also gain professional experience, solving real-world problems through internships and research with faculty.

The small class sizes make it so I’ve been able to easily connect with professors...and get more in-depth one-on-one time. It makes it easier to go to office hours or get more familiar with the professors." Kayla Archambault 20
