Department of Mathematics

The Mathematics Department of METU has large and active research groups working on several branches of mathematics. The department currently has 38 full time faculty members with diverse research areas in Algebra, Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory, Analysis, Coding Theory and Cryptography, Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis, and Geometry-Topology.

Students completing the M.Sc. program will have career options including enrolling in a Ph.D. program to using their mathematical expertise in jobs requiring advanced skills. Graduate students can take a variety of advanced courses according to their interests and they have an opportunuity to work with faculty members who are experts in their research areas, and to take part in activities of corresponding research groups in the department. Our graduate students, in particular, can participate in regular seminars, events and projects organized by the members of each research group.
