About the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics

The department consists of about 90 people working in mathematics, mathematical statistics, mathematics education and administration.

The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University, Sweden, is a young, multi-cultural and modern department located in a vibrant coastal city 300 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. We welcome international exchange and have partnership agreements with 20 institutions in the world.

Each year we teach around 2 000 students. We give courses of high quality in
mathematics and mathematical statistics in engineering programs and bachelor programs, theoretical-science programs and some of the teaching programs at Umeå University. Many of our courses are given by active researchers and are connected both to industrial applications and to the frontiers of research.

In addition to basic level education we conduct research and research training in key areas of computational sciences, mathematics and mathematical statistics. We have an attractive and highly dynamic research environment, and we are a founding partner of three prominent interdisciplinary research labs.
