Mathematics is a discipline that studies the structure of numbers, figures, abstractions and the relations between these structures. This discipline, which dates back to old times almost as much as the history of humanity, is a common language that improves the skill of reasoning and deciding and underlies all the positive sciences. Department of Mathematics and Computer Science enables the discipline of mathematics to be studied together with the discipline of computer science which is considered among the “Professions of the Future” and is always in a state of development and change. The aim of Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is; in line with the changes in technology and developments in industry in our country as well as in the globalising world, to graduate students as qualified people who are equipped with mathematics and computer skills and who can interpret, question, analyse, model and solve the complicated cases of today’s professional and social life.

The Department aims to graduate students as equipped with high levels of computer knowledge and skill along with a strong mathematical base. The four-years programme of the Department includes; mathematical subjects such as analysis, algebra, functions theory, differential equations, numbers theory, discrete mathematics; and computer subjects such as data structures and algorithms, logic circuits, programming languages, databases, operating systems, web designing and file systems. In the first three years of the programme, mathematics and computer lectures are given evenly and the education takes place in smart classes which are equipped with the latest models of computer technology. By this way, the opportunity of learning and practising the latest technology is supplied for the students. Besides, owing to Istanbul Arel University’s structure that supports interdisciplinary education, the lecturers of Department of Mathematics and Computer Science also give mathematics lectures required by students from other faculties such as Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences and Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. On the other hand, the Department does not only aim at giving education in the fields of mathematics and computer science, but it also places importance to graduating individuals who internalize the cultural values of our country, are respectful to the universal values of environment and humanity and are well educated in social domains. For this aim, social and cultural intensive courses and activities are included in our programme.

A large number of elective courses in the last two years of the programme provide students with the opportunity to specialize as a mathematician supported by computer science or as a computer operator supported by mathematics.

Working Areas

The graduates can work in software, computer, finance, informatics companies and in data processing centers of all types of companies all over the world. They can also be active in these sectors in professions such as project management, project development, programming, system analysis and web design. In addition to these, our graduates can work in fields where mathematics and analysis base is important such as the fields of optimization, sourcing and planning, and can also work as an expert, manager and researcher in insurance sector and in companies related to Exchange Market and Stock Exchange Market.
