Department of Mathematical Sciences

About us

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is a national centre for teaching and research in mathematics and statistics. The faculty staff is engaged in research covering a wide spectrum of subjects within mathematics, numerics and statistics, often with connections to the natural sciences and technological applications.

  • We teach the basic courses in mathematics and statistics for all engineering students at NTNU,
  • are instrumental in promoting the development of NTNU's program for training of science teachers,
  • works actively to strengthen the recruitment of students for the sciences and technology programmes.

Key figures

The department offers about 130 courses in mathematics and statistics, spanning two campuses (Gløshaugen og Gjøvik) and 5 research groups. We number about 185 people in total, counting 75 faculty staff, 62 PhD students, 24 postdocs, and 11 technical and administrative staff.

IMF is involved in 8 programmes of study: preparatory course for engineering studies and preparatory course in natural science; 1-year programme, bachelors programme (3 years), masters programme (2 years) and PhD in mathematical sciences (3 years), masters programme in industrial mathematics (5 years), and natural science with teacher education (5 years). We produce over 80 000 credits per year, distributed over 14 000 exams delivered by the students in our courses.
