Welcome to the website of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the American University of Sharjah!
The department has as strong and diversified course offerings that lead to Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Master of Science in Mathematics. We also offer two minor degree programs: the Minor in Actuarial Mathematics and the Minor in Applied and Computational Mathematics. We are committed to disseminate mathematical knowledge through excellence in research, innovative teaching and friendly learning environment.
Our graduates demonstrate knowledge and critical understanding of diverse areas of mathematics including: analysis, algebra, discrete mathematics and applied mathematics. They develop problem solving ability and critical thinking skills that will equip them for lifelong learning and serve them well through their professional success. We are very proud of what they have been able to achieve after graduation. Many of them occupied competitive positions at local, regional and international companies in industry, finance, media and other fields such as Diwanee, Ernst & Young, Unilever, Deloitte & Touche, Starcom Mediavest Group and many others. Other graduates joined teaching profession in high schools and higher education institutions in the region. A good number of our graduates have successfully joined post-graduate programs at major institutions in North America and Europe including Texas A&M University, University of British Columbia, University of Maryland, Cornell University, University of Lille and others.
Our faculty members are devoted to excellence in research and teaching. They have diverse background and professional experience from leading institutions in US, Canada and Europe to provide students with quality education. They are internationally acknowledged for their scholarly contributions to various areas of mathematics and statistics. Some of their research findings appear in top-rated international journals in their field of expertise. To learn more about our faculty members, their backgrounds and outstanding research achievements, please visit their profiles.
The department is a member of the American Mathematical Society. It is active in hosting and organizing professional international conferences, special events and seminar series. The department is continuously seeking to enhance the students’ learning experience through student conferences and general public lectures. For students seeking additional help in mathematics, the department also offers a tutorial clinic that is staffed by senior and graduate students.
