Your co-op or internship experience is an important part of preparing to network and interview with prospective employers before graduation.
Preparing for Your AMCS Degree
Before attending UW-Stout you should complete four years of high school mathematics. If you have not taken a trigonometry course in high school, then a pre-calculus course should be taken prior to enrolling in calculus and analytical geometry. Communication skills and applied problem-solving skills are important, so you should take as many English and science courses as possible. An introductory computer course is also recommended.
The program combines mathematics, statistics and computer science into one major. You may choose to take more courses in one discipline or another, but each concentration includes core courses in all three areas. You may have more than one concentration. Another option is to design your own emphasis area, possibly including a minor or second major.
During your first semesters at UW-Stout, you’ll enroll in a combination of general education and major core courses including calculus and computer science. You’ll meet regularly with your advisor to discuss your academic progress and future coursework. Together you will develop an academic plan for graduation to help you achieve your career objectives.
