The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is dedicated to the preparation of students for a dynamic future. Our faculty develop curricula that will challenge your curiosity, employ your inventive facilities, and allow you to enjoy the triumph of discovery. We follow Euclid's rigorous approach to mathematics while exploring modern topics like sustainability.
Our faculty are active researchers who provide an outstanding learning environment for students. Their research interests are diverse and include pure mathematics, applied mathematics, computer science, functional analysis, algebra, differential geometry, and topology.

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that is based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions with minimal human intervention. It provides methods for automating the process of analytical model building and has rapidly developing applications in many different areas such as actuarial sciences, finance, and healthcare.
