Mathematics is the universal language of science, essential for clear understanding of nature.

Our department’s vision is to become a wold’s leading department in interdisciplinary mathematical research and education in connection with various fields of science such as natural science, engineering, business administration, etc. and is to foster an innovative and interactive learning/working environment for mathematical productivity to attract not only mathematicians, but also scientists in other disciplines from around the world.

As part of our research vision, the faculty of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at UNIST promotes not only their own mathematical research program, but also encourage research collaboration in order to provide students with an exceptional level of mathematical education. Students majoring in mathematics will obtain not only the fundamentals of the mathematical sciences but also the abstract reasoning skills necessary to solve mathematical and scientific problems across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Virtually every core area of the mathematical sciences is strongly represented in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at UNIST.

The graduate program at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at UNIST is based on a stimulating research environment that provides a variety of opportunities for interdisciplinary research and collaboration with domestic and international researchers. The department offers a wide spectrum of courses in the mathematical sciences and trains students to become innovative and trailblazing users of the mathematical sciences for research in a wide variety of disciplines, including the physical sciences, mathematical biology, the engineering sciences and mathematical finance.
