The Mathematics Department is dedicated to being a nucleus of research in diverse fields from basic research to the most innovative and emerging applied technologies, and to providing quality instructions in mathematics and fundamentals.
The Mathematics department is a unit within the College of Science at Khalifa University and hosts a vibrant community of scholars who actively engage in research and development within rapidly emerging scientific fields. Research in the Mathematics department is funded by local and international agencies. The department is actively working on setting up and developing modern experimental and computing research facilities.
The department offers a B.Sc. program in Applied Mathematics & Statistics with two optional concentrations in Financial Mathematics and Mathematical Biology. Students may choose to complete a broad program of study leading to the award of a B.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics & Statistics, or select one of the two concentrations in order to focus their final year in the program on a particular area of application.
Mathematics department faculty are members of prestigious worldwide professional organizations such as ACS, AMS, APS, IEEE, MRS, SIAM, AAPT and others, and several are winners of prestigious peerreviewed research awards. The department is committed to disseminating mathematical knowledge through innovative teaching, excellence in research and friendly learning environment.
The BSc in Applied Mathematics and Statistics program offers training in mathematical problemsolving techniques with a reduced emphasis on abstract theory. The program is tailored to the student who will need to apply mathematical, statistical, and computational methods to practical problems.
Applied mathematics includes the theoretical portions of physics, chemistry, biomedicine, engineering, economics, finance, and a wide variety of other disciplines. Recent advances in computing technology have made the use of quantitative methods of even greater importance in these disciplines.
Prospects for employment opportunities for graduates in the mathematical and statistical sciences are excellent. There is a growing demand for professional mathematicians and statisticians in almost every sector of the job market, including the engineering and telecommunications industries; computer services and software development; actuarial and financial services; pharmaceutical industry and medical services; market research agencies; government laboratories and the military services; as well as academics and teaching.
Program Objectives
Student Outcomes
Students graduating with a BSc in Applied Mathematics and Statistics will attain the following
Career Opportunities
BSc in Applied Mathematics and Statistics  Base Concentration
Students in Applied Mathematics and Statistics complete their undergraduate education with superior analytical and problemsolving skills, a rare and highlyvalued commodity in today's job market. Graduates work in industry, business, research laboratories, or government agencies as applied mathematicians and statisticians. Some graduates work in education, and some will continue their education in graduate programs in applied mathematics, statistics, or areas of application.
BSc in Applied Mathematics and Statistics  Financial Mathematics Concentration
In the banking and financial investment industries there are many, highlypaid, positions for suitably qualified analysts in portfolio optimization, option pricing, stock market prediction, loan risk management and currency trading. In the insurance industry, actuaries model the risks and potential returns associated with life insurance, pensions and private healthcare programs.
BSc in Applied Mathematics and Statistics  Mathematical Biology Concentration
The biotechnology and health industries are currently providing an increasing number of positions, especially in the field of biostatistics. There are also many employment opportunities in the fields of agricultural and food science, biomedical engineering, marine biology, pharmacy, environmental modeling and meteorology.
