Department of Mathematics was established as one of the first departments shortly after the foundation of EMU. At the beginning, its mission was just to provide service courses in Mathematics and Computer Science. Over the past 30 years, the department has been evolving to one of the biggest and most international departments of EMU. The Department has become one of the most scholarly and competitive mathematics departments in the Turkish-speaking region and the Middle East. The main aim of the department is to educate students in becoming competitive at the international arena and providing high quality educational and research services in their own countries. The Mathematics and Computer Sciences Program is offered by the Mathematics Department.
Students attending the undergraduate program specialise in the areas of mathematics and computer science. The department’s tendency of offering these two programs is not only a preferred system in today’s world but also provides the graduates better employment opportunities. In order to provide its students with opportunities at international standards, the department continuously updates its curriculum according to developments and changing trends in the area.
Along with core courses in the areas of mathematics and computer science, every undergraduate student during his/her study in the department has the opportunity to choose from among the elective courses leading to the certificate programs in Managerial Economics and Financial Management offered by the Departments of Economics and Finance. Successful completion of the requirements of these certificate programs allows the student to receive the respective certificate. Students studying this undergraduate program may also take pedagogical formation courses and become Mathematics or Mathematics/Computer teachers.
