Welcome to the website of the department of Mathematics at Sultan Qaboos University. The department started in 1986 as a department of Mathematics and Computing offering a single Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and computing. This evolved into three Bachelor degrees in Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. In 1995 the department of Computer Science was established to host the Computer Science degree. The mother department name then changed to Mathematics and Statistics (DOMAS). In 2018, the department of Mathematics and Statistics (DOMAS) split into two departments; the department of Mathematics and the department of Statistics.
Department of Mathematics is among the largest departments in the University with over 40 faculty members. The department offers programs leading to B.Sc degree in Mathematics, M.Sc degree in pure Mathematics and M. Sc degree in applied Mathematics, and a doctorate degree in Mathematics. The department offers service courses to several colleges in SQU. The department is committed to quality teaching, research and community service. Department of Mathematics faculty members are very active in research.
We hope you find the information in this website useful. Please feel free to contact the department should you have any inquiry.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the department of Mathematics. Department of Mathematics is among the largest departments in the University with over 40 faculty members.

The department offers service courses for the colleges of Agriculture, Economics and Political Sciences, Education, Engineering, and Science. In order to achieve excellence in teaching and research, the department is working hard to ensure and maintain quality in all of its activities.
We are proud that a number of our graduates currently have leading roles in decision making in various areas in public and private sectors. At the graduate level, the department offers three programs; namely, a Ph.D program, a Master program in pure Mathematics and a Master program in applied Mathematics.
The Ph.D program was launched in the academic year 2009-2010. Since then, the program has been growing very fast. The department is very keen in implementing the highest quality standards on the program.
The vision of the department is to continue fostering excellence in research. The research in the department of Mathematics covers a wide spectrum of areas in Mathematics such as Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, discrete Mathematics, Numerical Analysis, Fractional Calculus, among others.
The department is pioneer in hosting and organizing international and national conferences and workshops in various disciplines of Mathematics. The department participated in the initiation of several programs and departments within SQU and served as consultancy body for a number of government institutions due to the expertise of its faculty members. Department of Mathematics will continue to maintain excellence in all of its activities.
