합리적이고 창의적인 수학 교육


수리과학과는 전통적인 분야인 대수학, 해석학, 위상수학, 기하학에서부터 확률, 통계, 계산수학, 금융수학, 생물수학에 이르기까지 순수수학과 응용수학을 아우르는 교육을 통하여, 합리적이고 창의적인 사고 능력을 갖춘 인재와 수학의 기본이론과 응용이론에 정통한 전문인력 양성을 추구합니다.


오늘날 서로 다른 분야를 종합하는 통합의 학문으로 재조명 받고 있는 수리과학의 위상에 발맞추어, 자연과학, 공학, 경영학 등과의 학제간 연구를 이끌고 연구소 및 산업체들과의 적극적 교류를 통하여 한국 수리과학 연구의 산실이 되고자 합니다.



Reasonable and creative math education


Department of Mathematical Science explores the connections between mathematics and its applications at both the research and educational levels. In addition to focusing on traditional study in pure mathematics, our research at UNIST is devoted to encompass some of the most diverse and interdisciplinary research in the physical, business, economics, engineering, and biological sciences. The department provides a dynamic and engaging research environment in scientific computing, mathematical biology, finance, dynamical systems, image processing, number theory and analysis in PDEs.


The undergraduate and graduate curriculum is planned with the following varied objectives: (1) to offer students an introduction to the fundamental study of quantity, structure, space, and change; (2) to prepare students for graduate study in pure or applied mathematics; (3) to serve the needs of students in fields that rely substantially on mathematics, such as the physics, biology, engineering, business and economics.
