The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science was initially formed in 1972 under the Basic Science Division as Department of Mathematics. Around 2021, this department was rebranded to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics to express the department's preparation for the era of data science in Malaysia.
The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to be an exemplary provider of education in modern mathematics based on research and innovative teaching and to pursue outstanding research in mathematics and statistics. It provides training which is focused on fields of research of current interest so as to forge and support excellence. The outstanding results achieved are evidenced by consistant contribution to various scholarly journals by the academic staff and through their performance in consultancy work.
The Department has interests in many areas of mathematical science, including Algebra, Numerical Analysis, Financial Mathematics, Differential Equations, Graph Theory, Probability Theory, Survival Analysis, Spatial Time Series, Experimental Design and Robust Statistics. It conducts research that supports the on-going development of theoretical mathematical science, simultaneously promoting the interdisciplinary use of mathematics and statistics in science, engineering and other fields.
In addition to collaboration with postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and graduate and undergraduate students, Department members enjoy close collaborative relationships with scientists from other departments and research institutes, nationally and internationally. Many Department members are affiliated to the Institute of Mathematical Research (INSPEM).
