Before the establishment of the bachelor degree in mathematics, this faculty was responsible for teaching math courses for different Engineering disciplines. After the establishment of mathematics as a major subject, this department began its activities in 1987 by establishing an undergraduate program in Applied Mathematics and now accepts students in Pure and Applied Mathematics and Computer Science.
In 1992, the graduate program began its activities by presenting a graduate program in Pure Mathematics. In 1995, the program of Applied Mathematics was started, in 1997 Statistics followed, and in 2002 Computer Science. Now the program of Pure Mathematics covers analysis, geometry, algebra, and logic. Applied Mathematics is dealing with numerical analysis and operation research, Statistics has statistical inference, probability theory, and random processes. Computer Science is doing research on graph, networks, and algorithms. Since 1995, a PhD program has been established in Applied and Pure Mathematics, in 1997 the PhD program in Statistics has followed
