The department of Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science provides a variety of activities for our students. Among them are:
- Individual competitions such as the Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest and the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition;
- Team competitions such as COMAP’s Mathematical Competition in Modeling;
- Invited speakers that illustrate the variety of job opportunities available for holders of math, physics, and engineering degrees;
- A weekly “Social Hour” where students have the opportunity to interact with faculty on a more informal basis. Board games tend to predominate at these events, but other options are available. Snacks provided!
