About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Mathematical Sciences at UT Dallas. Our faculty is committed to opening students' minds to the power, beauty, and utility of the mathematical sciences and to conducting research in their areas of expertise in order to keep abreast of curricular reform and innovative uses of this technology. We strive for excellence in education and research.

Mathematics is the universal language crucial in formulating, expressing, and understanding the ideas and major technological achievements of our time. It is not only useful in considering the problems of science and engineering, but also in many other disciplines such as business and the social sciences.

The Mathematical Sciences Department at The University of Texas at Dallas offers graduate study in six specializations: Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Engineering Mathematics, Mathematics, Statistics, and an interdisciplinary degree in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The degree programs offer students the opportunity to prepare for careers in these disciplines themselves or in any of the many other fields for which these disciplines are such indispensable tools. As other sciences develop, problems which require the use of these tools are numerous and pressing.

Whether you are a prospective student or a company interested in collaborating with us, we hope you will find useful information here. If you have the opportunity to visit us in person, you are assured of a warm welcome. Please feel free to contact us.
