Welcome to the department

Mathematics underlies the rise of science and technology, and is also a very interesting area of study in its own right. Its pursuit is the rigorous study of patterns: in geometry, in time and space, in nature, in physics, in biology, in industry and commerce,and even in patterns themselves.

Mathematics is essential for a high level career not only in science and engineering, but also in many branches of biology, medicine, commerce, and industry. Our Department trains students to international standards, and carries out international level research in both pure and applied mathematics. We invite you to join in this quest for understanding, whether it be in computational mechanics, industrial mathematics, gravitation theory and cosmology, biological modelling, financial modelling, or a study of mathematics as a subject itself.
