About the Department
The department consists of about 80 people working in mathematics, mathematical statistics, mathematics education and administration.
Each year we welcome around 1600 students. Courses in mathematics and mathematical statistics are given in most engineering programs and bachelor programs, many of the theoretical science programmes and some of the teaching programs at Umeå University. We also contribute to continuing education of practicing teachers. In addition, we give relevant courses at both beginner and intermediate level. Many of these courses are given by active researchers and connect to pertinent research frontiers.
In addition to basic level education we conduct research and research training in key areas of computational science, mathematics and mathematical statistics. The research environment is very active and we are a founding partner of three prominent interdisciplinary research labs.
We offer consulting services to partners within and outside of the university. Our research staff also gives popular science lectures to interface with society.
