The Department of Mathematics at the University of Brasília is part of the Institute of Exact Sciences. It offers about 35 undergraduate courses each semester. The diversity and richness of this selection is an enormous asset for students interested in the mathematical sciences.

The Department includes over seventy tenured faculty members, several post-docs and some visiting professors with interests ranging over all areas of mathematics. Moreover, 33% of the faculty members comes from abroad (Italy, Russia, China, Spain, Argentina, Belarus, Peru, and others).

The Department of Mathematics also has a rigorous program for a major in Mathematics with about three hundred and fifty students. There are two undergraduate programs in Mathematics: the first one leads to the degree “Bachelor in Mathematics” and the second one that leads to the “Licentiate in Mathematics” degree.

The Graduate Program in Mathematics started in 1962 and offers a Master (MSc) degree and a Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Mathematics in the subareas of Algebra, Analysis, Geometry and Applied Mathematics (Theory of Probability, Numbers Theory, Dynamical Systems, Mechanics, and Theory of Computation). The faculty maintains an active research program, regularly and actively participates prominently in scientific meetings and editorial boards of scientific journals, and maintains scientific exchange with various institutions in the country and abroad. The number of graduate students is about 150 and a great part has financial support during their academic programs.
