The School of Mathematics

The School of Mathematics delivers undergraduate service courses in mathematics for other schools within the university, and offers graduate programs in Applied Mathematics leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. At present, there are eight academic staff working in the areas of computer aided geometric design, control theory, harmonic analysis, numerical analysis and ordinary and partial differential equations.

International Cooperation: The School of Mathematics has been selected by the Ministry of University Affairs to receive support under its program to strengthen graduate level university education. Under this five-year program, the School has entered into cooperation agreements with several foreign mathematics departments for exchange of student and faculty. These include:

SUT students may receive support to attend lectures or engage in research at the cooperating departments for time periods of up to three months, and faculty from the cooperating departments may visit the School to deliver lectures or engage in research.

Computing Facilities: The School maintains a computer Lab with two Unix servers and seven PC workstations for use by graduate students. The lab is equipped with commonly used mathematical software such as Mathematica, Maple, Matlab and Reduce, various compilers, and office productivity software including TeX/LaTeX. The Unix workstations are accessible from home by use of a modem.
