About the Department

Excellence in research and a commitment to deliver effective and quality teaching programs are the two pillars on which the Department of Mathematics is based.

This commitment applies equally to the department's two overlapping groups: one interested in pure and applied mathematics, and the other in mathematical sciences and applications. The faculty in the first group are mathematicians. They are mainly interested on mathematical merits. Whereas the faculty in the second group are mathematical scientists, engineers or statisticians. They are mainly interested in the scientific content of the subject matter they are investigating. The two groups interact and complement each other's strength and knowledge.
