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
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.
