On May 6-7, the American Mathematical Society (AMS), Eastern Section, held its spring meeting at Hunter College, NYC. As part of the program, a special session on Applications of Network Analysis was held, in honor of the 75th birthday of Stevens Professor Dr. Charlie Suffel. Suffel is a long-time friend of the SHU Math/CS department; he was the thesis advisor for 3 of the department faculty, and on the thesis committee of a fourth. Suffel is coauthor on more than 20 papers with various SHU Math/CS department faculty and has given numerous research colloquia at SHU, including the Dr. Charles Frank Memorial Lecture in 2011.

The AMS is an organization of more than 28000 professional mathematicians. Seton Hall University is an institutional member, and many of the faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are members themselves. The mission of the AMS is to further the interests of mathematics research, scholarship, and education primarily through publications and conference meetings.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is located on Seton Hall's main campus in South Orange, New Jersey, a charming village in close proximity to New York City. Being home to a vast range of industries, this area is one of the most attractive for computing, data and mathematics professionals. Students of the department are prepared to pursue careers and internships in areas as diverse as telecommunications, web design, news media, insurance, finance, education, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and many others. Recognizing the importance of international experience in today's workplace, the department offers a variety of study abroad opportunities. Many graduates of the department find employment in private industry and government. Others pursue careers in education and academia. Visit our website to learn more »
