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.
The Department of Mathematics is among the largest departments in the University with over 40 faculty members. It 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.
The faculty members of the Department of Mathematics are very active in research. They are involved in research in different areas of applied and pure mathematics such as algebra and topology, differential geometry, coding theory, combinatorics, complex analysis, control theory, functional analysis, group theory, harmonic analysis, ring theory, operator theory, biomathematics, computational mathematics, fluid dynamics, fractional differential equations, general relativity, nonlinear dynamics, numerical analysis and optimization. They have published more than 350 high-quality research papers since 2016.
