About the Department of Mathematics


1 - Department code: MAT


2 - Message from Chairman:

         Many questions along the lines about the benefit of mathematics in our daily lives and why it is heavily taught in both the general education and university have been inquired. Perhaps the right question is what is the area in which mathematics has no benefit?

Mathematics is the basis of science in both its theoretical and applied divisions. It offers effective methods in statistics, data and decision-making, the issues of profits and losses as well as in the narrow fields of computer programming. It also plays a great deal in encryption, modeling of the problems facing the community and finding solutions to them, and many of the engineering and medical applications.

Finally, on my behalf and on behalf of all my fellow members of the faculty acknowledge the great efforts of His Excellency Mr. Dean and His Excellency the Vice-Dean as well as welcome all of our students and look forward to working together to rediscover the effectiveness of mathematics and its central role in our lives.
