The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is dedicated
to the preparation of students for the future, which is rapidly
changing today. Since 1870 the faculty associated with our
department have been developing curricula to help students
experience and sustain a taste for a mathematics through
challenging their curiosity, employing their inventive facilities
and enjoying together with them the triumph of discovery. The
rigorous approach to mathematics initiated by Euclid is still the
base of department’s curricula today as well as modern topics.
Contemporary mathematics is continuously being shaped by the needs
of modern society. Sustaining the planet’s environment,
transforming natural resources and enabling social synergy requires
knowledge in math, applied probability, optimization, simulation,
statistics, and related areas.
Our faculty members strive to provide an outstanding
learning environment for our students and are actively engaged in
research. The Department’s research activities are diverse,
spanning from pure to applied mathematics and computer science and
include analysis, algebra, differential geometry, functional
analysis, topology, computer science, and applied math. Faculty
members belong to many professional societies and organizations.
They give invited lectures and interact with area high schools
teacher’s communities through participation in schools scientific
events like Mathematics Fairs.
Unique Characteristics of the Program
The program offers considerable student-faculty contact. A
low student-to-faculty ratio encourages the sustained interest and
individual student progress. By encompassing knowledge in both
Mathematics and Computer Science, the department offers a unique
compound outlook on modern Mathematics with additional
concentration in Computer Science. Seminars and excellent selection
of library acquisitions provide trouble-free access to the
classical and the latest research results.
