Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis

The Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis pursues research at the highest level of ambition with focal areas in mathematical analysis, numerical analysis, stochastic analysis, and systems and operations research. It is responsible for teaching mathematics in the BSc programmes of the four engineering schools. Moreover, it offers MSc and doctoral majors in mathematics, mechanics, and systems and operations research.

In comparison with many of its international counterparts, the department has received recognition for its exceptional ability to attract external funding and to engage students in concrete, applied research projects that respond to the needs of its non-academic partners.
