Department of Mathematics was established in 1996. At the beginning, the department had only 6 members selected from the lecturers of the departments of Analysis, Algebra and Geometry of Faculty of Mathematics & Physics. Currently, The Department consists of 22 members: 6 Philosophy Doctors, 15 masters and 01 bachelor who are following master and PhD degree.

The Department of Mathematics consists of 3 specialized divisions which are:

        - Analysis

        - Algebra

        - Probability & Statistics

There are two labs in Department of Mathematics. Each has 21 computers that are used to teach practice informatics for undergraduate and graduate students of College of Natural of Sciences.

Tasks

    - Teaching Advanced Mathematics and Probability & Statistics to undergraduate students majoring in Laws, Economics, Agriculture, Engineering at general stage

      - Training undergraduate program of Applied Mathematics

      - Training graduate programs of Analysis, Algebra, Probability & Statistics 

      - Doing scientific researches in Vietnam and collaborating with international organizations regarding to Statistics and Mathematical models.

Training Aims

        * Undergraduate

         The department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. After graduating, learners can apply the knowledge of Mathematics and Statistics in teaching, research, etc.

          We provide fundamental knowledge of mathematics (especially in Statistics) for undergraduate students in applied mathematics major. We care for practice skills to help learners to be able to solve problems and apply for the real situation.

        * Graduate

        Beside bachelor degree, the Department also offers Master of Science in Analysis, Algebra, and Probability & Statistics. These programs provide advanced knowledge of mathematics. Based on obtained knowledge from these programs, learners are able to do research, improve professional ability and be well prepared for pursuing Ph.D degree.
