Welcome to MEDU
Emphasizes both pure and applied mathematics. Research in the department covers algebra, algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, functional analysis, algebraic number theory, dynamical systems and differential equations, and general relativity.
The Department of Mathematics offers undergraduate and graduate courses that lead to B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics as well as undergraduate and graduate courses to all departments of the university.
The department emphasizes both pure and applied mathematics. Research in the department covers algebra, algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, functional analysis, algebraic number theory, dynamical systems and differential equations, and general relativity.
The undergraduate program in mathematics aims to serve two different purposes through a highly flexible curriculum.
On the one hand, we educate the future mathematicians both with pure and applied interests. For this, we have a carefully prepared program whose success is tested over and over again during the last two decades. Only highly motivated and research-oriented students choose specialized mathematics courses and together with equally motivated and talented classmates they experience a challenging and rewarding learning process. The program allows students to choose and specialize in their research subjects and they may start to do projects with their chosen mentors.
On the other hand, we realize that some of our students decide not to pursue a research oriented path in mathematics. They want to prepare themselves for the challenges of the new era with a solid background in mathematics. Modern times require multivariate skills for jobs that were neither existent nor conceivable before. Our curriculum allows such students to structure their own education by allowing them to choose from the rich pool of courses offered on the campus by any department. This allows them to specialize in a subject of their choice with the advantage of having a strong mathematical basis.
The flexibility of our curriculum allows us to mentor and train both prospective mathematicians and widely educated individuals who will have a definite edge in the competitive job market for jobs that require talented and knowledgeable team members.
Our curriculum thus prepares students, according to their own choice, either for graduate work and research in mathematics or for a successful future in jobs such as economics, finance, business, and education, just to name a few roads walked by our past graduates.
