Overview

Through the different fields of algebra, analysis, geometry, number theory, and applied mathematics, the department aims to provide to students a balance between qualitative and quantitative aspects of mathematics. It will help students master the theory without losing sight of applications. Graduates of the Mathematics Department should be well prepared for graduate work or professional employment in mathematics or related areas.

Educational objectives for mathematics program

  • pursue professional development by securing acceptance in graduate programs in mathematics and other fields such as the field of quantitative/mathematical finance, mathematical computing, statistics and actuarial science
  • become contributing members of multidisciplinary teams and successfully apply the fundamentals of their educational background
  • apply their knowledge in modern industry or teaching

Program Outcome Objectives

At the end of the program, students will be able to
  • work with abstract mathematical concepts in a general context
  • apply the mathematical concepts by developing, analyzing, refining and/or resolving mathematical models.
  • engage complex mathematical reasoning in validating arguments by refining their analytical skills.
  • define and give good concrete examples of the mathematical structures like vector space, group, ring, etc..
  • use the appropriate IT resources to tackle mathematical problems and/or to document mathematics.
  • communicate, verbally and/or written, mathematical principles and ideas with coherence and clarity.
  • understand professional and ethical responsibility.
  • adopt effective learning strategies.
  • function in a multidisciplinary team.
