Department's Mission

Department of Mathematics aims to:

  • bring up qualified and self-confident professionals who possess the skills to make a difference both in the society and their professional lives through conducting research and follo wing the latest trends in their fields,
  • provide theoretical instruction for those who would like to study ma thematics at an advanced level in line with internationally recognized mathematics programs, deliver education considering the skills and interest areas of the students and expand employment opportunities for the graduates,
  • bring up qualified teachers for state and private schools and other educational institutions operating under the Ministry of Education of the Turkish Republic and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
  • equip the students with the skills to apply theoretical knowledge into practice through developing computer software and bring up qualified software designers for the informatics sector,
  • create the opportunity for the students to increase their expertise in specific areas of mathematics through the inclusion of the area electives into the program,
  • bring up qualified mathematicians and computer specialists demanded by different institutions or companies such as the country's or region's industry, the state institute of statistics and the state planning institute. 

Departmental Facilities

Department of Mathematics boasts highly-qualified and experienced faculty members who studied at prominent universities and have published numerous books and articles in their field of expertise. The education offered to students is supported by extensive research facilities such as technical equipment, highly-developed computer laboratories, Internet and rich library resources. Our department has adopted a system enabling effective student-academic staff communication. Students are provided with a comfortable environment whenever they wish to discuss their problems with academic staff. Additionally, students of the Mathematics and Computer Sciences Department may complete a minor program by taking three compulsory and three elective courses from the Economics and Finance Departments. Upon their successful completion of the aforementioned courses, students receive a Minor Program Certificate in the fields of Managerial Economics and Financial Management. 


The Department of Mathematics offers 3 undergraduate programs, in the fields of Mathematics & Computer Science, Statistics & Computer Science, and Actuarial Science. A total of 5 postgraduate programs are also offered: at master’s level, in the fields of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics & Computer Science, and Information Science, and at doctoral level, in the fields of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics & Computer Science.

Additionally, students of the Department of Mathematics have many options to complete double major programs together with other departments: students in the Actuarial Science program may complete a double major from the Department of Banking and Finance, while students in the Mathematics & Computer Science program may complete a double major from the Department of Physics. There are also internal double major programs, such as a double major in Actuarial Science and Mathematics & Computer Science. Minor programs are also available to students of the Department of Mathematics, including a minor program in Economics and a minor program in Molecular Biology & Genetics. Students from other departments, such as the Department of Economics and the Faculty of Engineering and the Department of Biology, are also welcome to complete a minor program in Mathematics & Computer Science by taking six courses from the Department of Mathematics.

Distinguishing Attributes

In line with the department's fundamental aims of providing theoretical instruction for those who would like to study mathematics at an advanced level through internationally recognized mathematics programs, delivering education considering the skills and interest areas of the students and expanding employment opportunities for the graduates, the curricula offered by the department are comparable with leading state universities in Turkey such as Ankara, Hacettepe, İstanbul and Gazi Universities. In the Times Higher Education world university rankings of 2024 for physical sciences (which includes mathematics and statistics), EMU ranks as the best one among Turkish universities, and one of the best 500 in the world. Along with this, the department also offers an array of area elective courses, all contributing to the expertise level of the students in different areas. The department offers postgraduate and doctoral degree studies and facilitates research in each and every branch of mathematics.

Major Accomplishments

Since its establishment, our department has graduated more than 70 PhD students, over 150 master's students, and around 700 undergraduate students. Within the last five years, faculty members at EMU Mathematics Department have successfully published more than 200 articles in journals indexed by Science Citation Index (SCI) and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E). According to the Times Higher Education subject-specific rankings for Physical Sciences published in 2024, EMU ranks among the top 500 universities in the world in subjects related to Physical Sciences, which includes mathematics and statistics, and as the best one among all Turkish universities in these subjects. Additionally, our department has successfully undertaken the organization of the annual "Onay Fadıl Demirciler Mathematics Competition amongst High Schools" for 20 years.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the department may pursue employment opportunities as mathematics or IT teachers, or academicians. Banking, Finance and Economics sectors as well as government planning organization, stock market, airline companies, software companies and centers for informatics are further employment opportunities for our graduates.
