Department of Mathematics (Pure Mathematics Applied Mathematics)
This department was founded in 1962. Undergraduate students in mathematics not only learn basic mathematics thoroughly but also gain detailed familiarity with logical, creative, and analytical thinking, problemsolving skills. The students are expected to utilize mathematical tools and models in analyzing issues related to science, engineering, technology and various sectors of the society such as industry, manufacturing, economic, and social management. Students can take their Bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.) in Mathematics and its applications after four years of study. Since 2010 students have been accepted in Mathematics and its Applications with or without the minor of pure and applied mathematics. Before that students could study Pure or Applied Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics. More
Pure Mathematics
The Master’s program (Pure Mathematics) was founded in 1985. The aim of the concentration in Pure Mathematics, offered by the Department of Mathematics, is to give students a broader and deeper understanding of the basic concepts underlying mathematics. This understanding enables masters students develop their skills largely in logical, creative and analytical thinking, and problemsolving skills and utilization of the mathematical tools and models in analyzing issues related to science and engineering compared with their undergraduate counterparts. This program also prepares students to further their education at Ph.D. level. The Master’s program at the Department of Mathematics concentrates on Functional Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Algebraic Topology, Dynamical Systems, Group Theory, and Algebraic Combinatorics.
The Ph.D. program (Pure Mathematics) was established in 2009. This program concentrates on Pure Mathematics and aims at educating knowledgeable specialists in their related concentration (i.e., specialization) who can take the position of academic staff at universities and higher education institutions for teaching at different levels, doing research, and providing specialized services in mathematics nationally and internationally. Before 2005, students were accepted in Analysis, Algebra, and Geometry at the masters’ level .The candidates can select one of the concentrations in this program such as Functional Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Algebraic Topology, Dynamical Systems, Group Theory, and Algebraic Combinatorics.

Applied Mathematics
This Master’s program (Applied Mathematics) was Founded in 1994. It aims at broadening and deepening the understanding of the basic concepts underlying mathematics to develop master’s students’ competence in logical, creative, and analytical thinking, problemsolving skills and utilization of the mathematical tools and models in analyzing issues related to science and engineering compared with Bachelor’s students. Masters students in Applied Mathematics learn to model real world problem and utilize applicable software in simulation models to be prepared for pursuing a Ph.D. degree. The Concentrations of this program are Numerical Analysis, Operational Research, Optimal Control, Optimization, Differential Equations, Graph Theory, and Mathematical Education.
The Ph.D. program (Applied Mathematics) admitted doctoral candidates since 1994. This program aims at educating knowledgeable specialists in their related concentration who will be able to take the position of academic staff at universities and higher education institutions in teaching at different levels, doing research, and providing specialized services in mathematics nationally and internationally. This program concentrates on Numerical Analysis, Operational Research, Optimal Control, Optimization, Differential Equations, Graph Theory, and Mathematical Education. More
