Welcome to the Department of Mathematics

Our department has the oldest roots among the mathematics departments of the Lisbon Region. It has four main tasks:

  1. To teach mathematical courses needed for the College of Sciences and the University of Lisbon.
  2. To train mathematicians for the contemporary world and multiple employments.
  3. To participate in the formation of future high school teachers.
  4. To do research in mathematics and train future researchers.

Through the individual contributions of its academic staff, the department has also a long history of intelectual involvement in public life. From pure mathematics to applications and the recognition of the importance of informatics in today’s world, the Department of Mathematics is resolutely open to the future as a small, vibrant and strong department.
