The current department of mathematical sciences was formed in 1976 as a part of the faculty of sciences and continued its activities as an independent department since 1982, initially offering only B.Sc. degrees in mathematics. Currently the department offers B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in various disciplines as diverse as pure and applied mathematics, as well as pure and applied statistics. More than 60 Ph.D. students have been graduated during the last decade who now pursuit their academic career as faculty members in different universities in Iran. As of Oct. 2015, the department has 39 faculty members including 5 full professors, 15 associate professors and 19 assistant professors, as well as 250 undergraduate students, 250 master students and 100 Ph.D. students in different disciplines of pure and applied mathematics.
The department has strong connections with industry and other external partners. Our collaborations include research projects to deal with organizational challenges. The department has active cooperative projects with some industrial companies. The faculty members have always been active and influential in academic societies such as Iranian mathematical society (IMS) and Iranian Statistical Society (ISS). One of our colleagues is now serving as a member of board of directors of IMS.
Department is very active in organizing national and international conferences as well as summer school and workshops. More recently, in Sep. 2015, the international summer school in tilling and tessellation was held in the department jointly with CIMPA (France). Next year in July 2016, the thirteen international seminar on differential equations and dynamical systems (DEDS13) is scheduled to be held in IUT.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers the degrees of Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Pure Mathematics, Industrial Mathematics, and Statistics. At the graduate level, it offers the Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Ph.D. in Pure and Applied Mathematics and Pure and Applied Statistics.
