Mathematics plays an important and ever increasing role in a number of new emerging fields and specializations such as mechatronics and forensic sciences and bioinformatics. Mathematics develops computational, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. The theory, discipline, and techniques taught in mathematics courses are especially important in today's society; as such, the goal of the Mathematics Department is to develop and offer dynamic programs that prepare students to enter new fields of specializations, and to offer more diverse and flexible tracks and/or double majors that will make students highly competitive in the job market.
The department also recognizes the role of research in the development of its faculty members and students; accordingly, it has increased its activity in scholarly work and research. To strengthen the scholarly activities, the department holds conferences, workshops seminars, and community outreach projects on a regular basis.
The Department of Mathematics provides services to other academic departments by offering required basic mathematics. Students majoring in Computer Science, Computer and Communications Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering, Health Sciences, or in any academic business discipline, are required to understand mathematics fundamentals, which are essential to their mastery of subject matters pertaining to their academic disciplines.
To accomplish the above goals, the highly qualified faculty members at the Department of Mathematics use multiple instructional methods, teaching aids and classroom activities that help students develop the needed computational, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills that they would later implement in real-life situations and in technological applications.
