Department of Mathematics

Our department, affiliated with the Faculty of Science and Literature, which has been serving in a significant region of our country since 1973, is one of the oldest faculties at our university. Following a restructuring in 2010, our department became a part of the Faculty of Science and operates under its umbrella. It consists of six main branches:

  • Analytical Mathematics
  • Number Theory
  • Geometry and Topology
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Mathematics Education

Our graduates are awarded the title of "Mathematician."

The department is comprised of 16 faculty members, including 7 Professors, 2 Associate Professors, 4 Doctoral Instructors, 1 Lecturer, and 1 Research Assistant.

Thanks to the Scientific Preparation Programs (SPP) that we offer, including those tailored for our own graduates, post-graduation Master's and Doctoral programs can be pursued in various faculties, both within our university and in other universities. Additionally, postgraduate education is provided for scholars enrolled in the Overseas Scholar Program (OSP), with two OSP students currently pursuing postgraduate studies in our department.

We also have a mutually beneficial Dual Major (Double Major) program with the Department of Physics in our faculty.

Limited resources are allocated to provide support courses as required by the university's relevant departments.

Since 1993, we have been implementing the Evening Education Program (EEP), and as of the 2013-2014 academic year, it has been decided to admit new students to this program by the authorized bodies.

Our undergraduate program is designed in harmony with similar programs at other universities in our country and is supplemented with various computer courses in collaboration with the Informatics Department under the support of the Rectorate and conducted by our expert faculty members. The program is also enriched with Statistics courses. In this regard, we can be considered privileged compared to many other departments.

Starting from the 2014-2015 academic year, our department adopted the New Undergraduate Program, compatible with the Bologna Process, for students who entered in or after 2014. This program, which has been approved by our university's senate, has been put into effect.

Our department is connected to the INTERNET network, providing our students with practical opportunities, which are being expanded day by day.

The Teacher Training Program has been restructured in line with recent legal changes and has been implemented by our university's relevant departments as planned by the Council of Higher Education (YÖK) since the 2013-2014 academic year, enabling our graduates to become teachers.

Our graduates can find employment opportunities in various fields beyond teaching. Private educational institutions, companies in need of "mathematicians" with expertise in computer science, as well as academic positions through research assistantships, serve as additional career paths.
