Department of Mathematics

Van Vleck Hall, 480 Lincoln Drive, Madison, WI


Entrance requirements:

Admission to AMEP is internal to UW Madison, you must be admitted to UW Madison or already be a UW Madison student to join AMEP.

Admission into AMEP as a freshman requires placement into Math 222 at least, although placement into Math 234 (4 or 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam) is preferred. Admission into AMEP as a sophomore or junior requires a 2.75 GPA in introductory core courses taken in the Mathematics and Physics Departments. 

Although AMEP has a substantial engineering component, it is at present a Letters and Science degree -- The Bachelor of Science in AMEP. Non-L&S students must transfer into Letters and Science.

Declaring AMEP:

Students should declare AMEP as soon as possible in order to receive AMEP specific advising and be included on the AMEP mailing list to stay informed about AMEP current events and opportunities. Students should first familiarize themselves with the degree requirements and the four-year plan, then visit an AMEP Math Faculty advisor to declare the degree. 

Advisors and Department Homepages:

Each student will have three faculty advisors.

  1. An AMEP degree advisor, who is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics.
  2. A physics advisor, who is a Professor in the Department of Physics.
  3. An engineering advisor, who is a Professor in the department in which the student chooses to focus.
