almost every field of scientific, engineering, economic and industrial
endeavor, the language of mathematics is of major importance as the means
of communicating ideas, of articulating theoretical concepts, organizing
and analyzing data, modeling and projecting trends. A large part of
contemporary applied mathematics involves computer-assisted numerical
analysis, logic and statistics. Many modern modeling problems in all
fields are becoming so complex that their solutions require specialized
skills and training in applied mathematics.
EMU Department of
Mathematics In terms
of the number of courses taught and the activity of research, the
Mathematics Department is one of the largest departments of the Eastern
Mediterranean University. The full-time faculty includes 6 professors, 9
associate professors, 9 assistant professors and 2 lecturers. Together
with 19 assistants and 13 part time instructors, the number of academic
staff for the 2003 -2004 academic year totals 58 members from 8 different
countries. All staff members are active in research and have close
relationships with well-known universities and research centers around the
world. Faculty members are also dedicated teachers who are constantly
working on ways to educate their students better and to develop curricula.
A low faculty to student ratio enables closer contact between students and
instructors, both inside the classroom, and during office hours.
Department of Mathematics offers five programs. These are: · B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science · M.S. in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science · M.S. in Information Systems (Non - thesis) · Ph.D. in Mathematics · Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science
The undergraduate program in Applied Mathematics and
Computer Science has been designed to meet the specialized personnel
requirements of modern industry, commerce and education. The growth in
computer technology has also made the fields of numerical analysis,
computer science and computer programming areas of intense activity. At
present, there is a serious shortage of adequately trained instructors in
computer science and mathematics at all levels. Equipped with modern
knowledge, technical skills and the ability to learn, graduates of the
Department of Mathematics are qualified to work in almost all areas.
Scholarships, in the form of partial coverage of the tuition fee, are
available for all students who show outstanding academic performance.
