**Head of Department: Prof. Alexander Domoshnitsky** Mathematics is the queen of sciences which constitutes as the base for all other exact sciences, engineering and economics.

The departments overlook for building programs is to provide each alumnus with a wide variety of options for working in the field.

The department offers studies in varied programs –

**Mathematics and Computational Science** – There is an increasing demand for mathematicians with training in computer sciences and the ability to program and solve applicational problems. The program is built of an array of basic and advanced courses in mathematics and computer sciences, which will allow the alumni to work in high-tech companies and the industry. The graduates of the program with a major in mathematics and a minor in computational sciences have a priority over graduates of computer sciences.

**Mathematics and Economics** – This program can be an answer to the great requirement for mathematicians that specialize in elementary principles of macro-economics ad micro-economics, in the dynamics of large and small subjects in economics, insurance industries, stock markets, bank loaning policies, calculation of optimal interest rates, and of other fields in economics.

**Mathematician-Engineer** – Answers the demand in industry and high-tech for mathematicians who understand applied problems in the fields of engineering, investigations, simulations and developing models in technology, construction and economics.

**Mathematics and Calculative Mechanics **– The main goal of this program is training the graduates for future employment as mathematicians-programmers in high-tech software industry and engineering design companies.

**Financial Mathematics** – Alongside the development of computational abilities in the end of the 20^{th} century, the amount of trading and activity using financial instruments grew accordingly, and their mathematical complexity increased. Therefore, in the financial field there is a great demand for employees with mathematical background. Many financial institutes such as banks, insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds and investment houses employ a great number of workers who deal with the activity of financial instruments such as loans, mortgages, derivatives, etc.
