Mathematics and Engineering Images

Though the progress of science and technology is increasingly rapid, the basic foundations of all of them are almost invariably mathematical. The Department of Mathematics and Engineering was launched in 2006 to provide education and research with a mathematical perspective in the various fields of engineering. In this department, after learning the basic concepts of chosen fields of engineering, students study and test those fields from a mathematical standpoint.

EDUCATION

The curriculum is structured to offer a kind of academic link between engineering and mathematics. The programs are tailored to give students the skills needed to deal with the variety of complicated problems presented by modern society.
We provide two different programs. One is related to mathematics, and the other to engineering. The mathematical program is designed to enable students to understand mathematical models that appear in engineering. The engineering program provides classes that equip students with engineering knowledge, and consists of fourteen courses from various fields in engineering. Students are required to take at least two courses in the area of their interest.

Information Mathematics

One of the most important issues involving information mathematics is information security (especially cryptography development and decryption). Quantum computing may be realized in the near future, as well. We are studying innovations in cryptography and discovering surprising uses for number theory, complex analysis and Fourier analysis. Our studies are fundamental but offer new and exciting applications.

Analysis of Complex Systems and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

Various natural phenomena, such as heat flows, waves, fluid movement, changes in population and segregation of species in biology are described by differential equations. We can understand, explain and predict complex phenomena by solving the corresponding differential equations. We first learn basic methods of solving differential equations and study the behavior of the solutions. Afterwards, we comprehensively study nonlinear differential equations that describe complicated phenomena such as turbulence. Our analysis is based mainly on pure mathematics, but we also study subjects with numerical computation.

Probability

Traffic jams, propagations of an epidemic or computer virus, unexpected mechanical problems, economic fluctuations and stock market prices all represent nondeterministic phenomena that occur in our lives. In the field of probability, research and education from elementary through applied mathematics relative to nondeterministic phenomena is provided.

Statistics

Statistics play a fundamental role in extracting useful information from data, and have become widely used tools not only in academic fields such as engineering, medicine, science, and economics, but also in companies involved in manufacturing, finance, and insurance. We provide classes on statistics that cover elementary to advanced levels.
