The Graduate program of Mathematics aims to educate students in the specialties connected with mathematical sciences, so that they acquire the ability to conduct creative research activities independently.
Since the founding of the course in 1963, more than 300 people have graduated with the Master’s of Science degree. Their current professions are, mostly, researchers, computer engineers and high school teachers.
Among all intellectual pursuits, mathematics is the oldest, yet also one of the newest, and one of the most exciting areas of studies. An exact science based upon logic and a large number of theorems, each equipped with a proof, mathematics is completely transparent and useful in many aspects of society. Most natural or human sciences are formed to some extent upon mathematics, some using modern mathematics as a fundamental tool.
Even today, mathematics is still faced with certain unsolved problems despite the constant efforts of mathematicians, thus, mathematical research remains as one of the most challenging and integral activities of human beings.
The program is formed by professors from a wide range of specialties, not only pure mathematics but also algorithms. Professors, all eminent researchers in the field, some world-renown, prepare lectures covering virtually all fields of mathematical sciences.
The number of students in each lecture is kept at a small number to ensure close guidance on an individual basis. Students are divided into small groups according to their specialties and are assigned professorial supervisors. Professors organize seminars each week, and also make themselves available to offer personalized advice to each student.
The Departmental library possesses a large number of books and journals, as well as access to most of the electric journals of the field, for ease of usage in research activities. Our computer laboratory is equipped with high-performance computers open to students.
