The Mathematics Division teaches a broad-based Mathematics syllabus in Levels 1 to 3. This leads onwards in Level 4 to a set of topics inspired by our internationally-rated recognised research strengths in Applied Mathematics, including numerical analysis, mathematical biology and applied analysis: the most recent review of our research resulted in the award of a 5 grading (equal top in Scotland) in the Applied Mathematics category. In addition, the Division is a small and friendly place where staff are ready and willing to help at all levels. You will soon get to know the staff and your fellow students.
The University of Dundee is one of the UK’s leading universities, internationally recognised for its expertise across a range of disciplines including science, medicine, engineering and art. Its mission regarding teaching and research is:
- 'to advance and diffuse knowledge, wisdom and understanding by teaching and research and by the example and influence of its corporate life'
Mission statement, Royal Charter 1967
In 2007, the University will celebrate 40 years since it became an independent university after a 70 year relationship with the University of St. Andrews. Over the last ten years the University has seen exciting changes - since 1994 the University has more than doubled in size.
The mission statement still provides focus for the University today as it powers forward as one of the UK’s top institutions for teaching and research across a broad range of disciplines.
The medical and life sciences are 5* rated while the University is home to one of the UK’s top art schools. Dundee was Scottish University of the Year 2004/2005 (Sunday Times) and was ranked top for teaching quality in 2005 (The Times Higher Education Supplement and The Times).
The University continues to move forward and is currently undergoing a £200 million redevelopment programme for the city centre campus which includes four new student residences, new teaching facilities, an extension to the Main Library and an extension to existing sports facilities.
The University has been described as aspirational:
- 'having its head in the clouds and its feet firmly on the ground'
