About Mathematical Sciences

Mathematical sciences methodologies are effective in resolving the ever more complex issues of the real world. With this in mind, we train students to acquire a firm understanding of math basics and then develop them to play a crucial role in a wide range of scientific and engineering fields through the instruction of applicable skills like simulation technologies and other methods focused on specific issues.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is designed to develop individuals who can proactively implement scientific mathematical methods in society, under a core educational mission entitled, “Foster students with strong quantitative skills who can proactively respond and apply their knowledge to an array of applications”.

Specifically, the department is designed to nurture engineers with in-depth mathematical knowledge ranging from theory to application, who can undertake phenomenon analysis, conduct simulations, and construct innovative engineering systems in manufacturing and information industries. Graduate analysts with skills in statistics are targeted to contribute to society by analyzing and understanding economic activities and social phenomena. Additionally, specific individuals targeted include junior and senior high school teachers, those with expertise in educational industries ranging from educational publishing to educational system development, and researchers with a specialization in pure mathematics and applied mathematics, who can proactively participate in creating a flourishing human society.

With the development of science and technology in the contemporary era, there are many problems that involve multiple fields. This means that we need to learn a wide range of knowledge and ideas from a range of fields to engage with future developments in science and technology. In particular, without logical thinking, there can be no developments in science and technology we can rely on. Mathematical ideas are especially important for developing arguments logically.
Mathematics is actually useful in a vast range of fields, from physics, computer science, and engineering, to areas such as economics, psychology, and sociology. However, applying mathematics in these other fields encourages the development of mathematics itself, and as a result, its applications increase even further. This cycle can be termed the real essence of mathematical science.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences aims to train people with a mastery of the various methods used in mathematical science and who can actively contribute to the development of each field. To that end, we offer specialist subjects in algebra, geometry, and analysis, the pillars of pure mathematics, and require all students to learn an overall knowledge of mathematics and the mathematical thinking that have developed over the long history of humanity. In addition, as preparations for a mathematical science-based approach to the various issues arising from science and technology, and natural and social phenomena, we offer courses in applied mathematics based on applied numerical analysis, discrete numbers, multivariate analysis, functional equation theory, modeling and simulations, data structures and algorithms, and computer algebra. We also incorporate insurance mathematics, financial engineering, mathematical biology, and optimal control theory into our curriculum.
Our education is designed to create people who can use their skills in a wide range of fields. Specific paths following graduation for our students make use of their knowledge of mathematics as a whole and their logical thinking, and include mathematical engineers involved in design, analysis, and forecasting in the manufacturing industries or in environmental surveys, information technicians responsible for everything from research and development of sophisticated algorithms to programming, and even actuaries and specialists in financial engineering. In addition, we also assume many graduates will go on to teaching, including in middle schools or high schools, or be active at the forefront of mathematical science.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences welcomes applicants who properly understand the features and educational content described above, and are willing to actively work on their studies with passion and commitment.

Graduates are engaged in an array of professions that include teachers, civil servants, publishing companies, education companies, cram schools, banks, trading companies, insurance companies, finance companies, system engineers, the computer companies, internet-related companies, game companies, environmental consulting firms, transportation companies such as the railways, other service industries and general manufacturers.
