The department of Mathematics is one of the oldest departments of COMSATS University Islamabad, Abbottabad Campus. It was established in 2001. Mathematics as a mother of science is the basic need of all types of scientific fields. Without a sound mathematical background, obtaining excellence in fields like engineering, medical science, computer science, business, economics, etc., is impossible. Thus, linkages between industry and academia can be strengthened by strong mathematical skills. In this regard, the department is providing services in allied departments of the campus like Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Biotechnology, Pharmacy, Management Science, and Development Studies.
The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty currently comprising 31, including 3 professors, 7 associate professors, 9 assistant professors, and 12 lecturers (out of which 20 are Ph.D., 4 has postdoc, 8 are doing Ph. D,). The faculty has high-quality teaching and research skills. The research interests of the faculty are in fields like Fluid Dynamics, General Relativity, Differential Equations, Commutative Algebra, Group Theory, Financial Mathematics, Complex Analysis, Biomathematics, Fuzzy theory, and Fractional Calculus. The department has published more than 600 research papers in international journals. Also, for the implementation of quality research, the department has established effective collaboration with reputed international universities in the USA, UK, China, Spain, Australia, South Africa, Russia, Korea, and Saudi Arabia.
The department offers MS in mathematics duration of 2 years and so far, the department has produced more than 450 brilliant graduates. The majority of pass-out graduates are providing services in different universities and colleges in the country. The Ph.D. and MS programs have been approved recently and Ph.D in Mathematics is started from Spring 2023.
As part of a large public research university, the mission of the department is to teach useful, interesting, and relevant mathematics, and to extend the subject through research. We have active research groups in Algebra, Analysis, and Applied Mathematics.
