The Department of Mathematical Sciences of Isfahan University of Technology (IUT), founded in 1977, originally as a part of the Basic Science Department, started its activities by offering general mathematical courses for engineering students of the university. Due to rapid growth and effective attempts of the faculty members, in 1983, by accepting the first group of bachelor students in Mathematics it turned to an independent department with specialists in Mathematics and Statistics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences started its functioning since 1986, and one year later offered its first master program in Mathematics and Statistics. The first PhD students in Mathematics and Statistics have been accepted in 1995 and 2004, respectively. Actually, this department consists of 40 faculty members (5 professors, 10 associate professors and 25 assistant professors).
