Department of Mathematical Sciences
The Department of Mathematical Sciences is the academic home for research in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and consists of three divisions:
The Department works closely with the DST/NRF Centre of Excellence in Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA). The centre focuses on research to understand disease dynamics and improve real-world outcomes. The Department is also actively involved in the postgraduate and research activities of the
African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), a Pan-African network of
affiliated institutes dedicated to postgraduate education, research, and public engagement in the mathematical sciences. It is also host to a Research Chair in
Mathematical and Theoretical Physical Biosciences as part of the South African Research Chair Initiative (SARChI), together with AIMS-South Africa
Take note: Postgraduate programmes in Mathematical Statistics and Operations Research fall under the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.
