The department of mathematics at UOG is established in 2003. under the Faculty of Applied Natural Science(currently called Faculty of Natural and computational sciences) in the name of Department of Applied Mathematics. The department has graduated four batches in Applied Mathematics, at B.Sc. degree level. Now, based on the revised and harmonized Curriculum at national level and BPR, changes have been made and its name is changed to Department of Mathematics, as agreed at national level.
Among the newly emerging many post graduate programs in the University, post graduate program in mathematics is one of them. This program came into reality in the beginning of 2011. Under strong support of UOG, the department of Mathematics is doing its best in attaining its plan of opening M.Sc. program and starts production of qualified mathematicians, who will contribute a lot in the development and rapid growth of our country.
Expanding its programs further, the department has designed a full-fledged in-house PhD program in five branches of specialization, namely: Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Differential Equations, and Optimization. The program creates the opportunity for eligible candidates to undertake their PhD studies locally in the listed areas of mathematics.
The department is undertaking a revision on its M.Sc. curriculum to expand its programs in number and to provide qualified graduates that could contribute to the development of the country. The department is also working with its effort to develop a new curriculum for a PhD program in several field of specializations. It is planned to start the programs in 2023 academic year. The proposed PhD program is a course-and-research-based program in the above mentioned areas of specializations, in which candidates are expected to make a significant contribution to mathematics, or develop a new application of mathematics. The designed courses to be offered in the program constitute a highly advanced body of knowledge in mathematics and are designed to familiarize students with the recent advances in their areas of specialization. The PhD program is envisaged to be three to four-year of full-time study.
