About the Department
Department of Mathematics was established in 1961 as an independent department within the Faculty of Science. The Department of Mathematics consists of three options; In 1973, Theoretical Mathematics Weighted Mathematics and Applied Mathematics Weighted Math Options, then Computer Science Weighted Mathematics option was created. The Department of Mathematics consists of seven sub-departments since 1982.
1. Algebra and Number Theory.
3. Theory of Analysis and Functions
5. Fundamentals of Mathematics and Mathematical Logic.
6. Applied Mathematics
7. Computer Science
Students who successfully complete the courses in the department are awarded with a bachelor's degree in Mathematics.
Admission and Registration Requirements
High School diploma and ÖSYM exam results to be eligible to register for our department.
Rules for Recognition of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)
Exemption exam is held for courses such as Computer and English which are included in the Mathematics Department's curriculum. Students who think that these courses provide the expected learning outcomes have the right to take the exams. Students who pass the exam are exempted from the related course.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Undergraduate: Students who have successfully completed all courses in the program (equivalent to a total of 240 ECTS) and have at least a 2.0 GPA out of 4.00 are awarded with a bachelor's degree.
Master's Degree: Students who have taken at least 21 credits (nearly 60 ECTS credits) of the courses in the undergraduate program and who have successfully completed all of them, have at least 70 GPA out of 100 and successfully defended their thesis in front of a chosen jury. The students are awarded a master's degree.
Doctorate: Students who have successfully completed at least 21 credits (nearly 60 ECTS credits) from the courses in the undergraduate program and who have successfully completed all of them, who have at least 75 GPAs out of 100 and who have successfully defended their thesis in front of a chosen jury. doctorate degree.
The duration of education is four years except for one year of English preparatory class. Students who do not have English proficiency must attend a one-year English preparatory program in the department of foreign languages. Some of the departmental courses are in English. The educational program of our department has been organized to train modern mathematicians who can follow the developments in modern mathematics. In the first four semesters (first two years), all departmental students take courses such as General Mathematics, Analysis, Topology, Differential Equations, Abstract Mathematics and Computer Science. Students choose one of the three options at the end of the fourth semester. These are,
Theoretical Mathematics Weighted Mathematics,
Applied Mathematics Weighted Mathematics and
Computer Science Weighted Mathematics.
In the third and fourth years (from the fifth period) each option has elective and compulsory courses in itself.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates
Our graduates can be appointed as a mathematics teacher by MEB or they can work as a mathematics teacher in private and private schools if they have the required score from the KPSS and they have the formation. They may have various positions in the IT sector. Candidates who continue their graduate education may work as researchers or academicians in universities or in various institutions.
Transition to Graduate Programs
Candidates who have successfully completed their undergraduate studies can study in master's / doctoral programs provided that they have a valid score from ALES and have sufficient knowledge of English.
In our department, 13 professors, 12 associate professors, 4 assistant professors, 4 lecturer, and 9 research assistants, approximately 1000 students.
