About us

The department plays an important role in education at Ghent University and is responsible for teaching more than 100 courses in different faculties. The bachelor's and master's programs Mathematics and Computer Science and the subsequent master's program Statistical data analysis are closely linked to the department. In addition, the department is responsible for a lot of courses taught in other study programs.

The research is organised in several research groups in the disciplines applied mathematics, computer science and statistics, which, in addition to research, also keep the education innovative and up-to-date. Many research groups work multidisciplinary, and collaborate closely with researchers from other institutions.
