As of April 1, 2011, the Faculty of Mathematics has reorganized and separated into “Faculty of Mathematics” and “Institute of Mathematics-for-Industry,” composed of about 45 and 25 staff respectively. With this reorganization, the Faculty of Mathematics has made a new start. These two organizations are educationally responsible for the Graduate School of Mathematics and are engaged in first-rate research activities and in charge of overall mathematical educations, such as calculus and linear algebra for the first and the second year students, basic mathematics for students in engineering, and the undergraduate and graduate courses for math students in Kyushu University, as before.
In September 2009, the Faculty of Mathematics has moved to the new Ito campus, where the Faculty of Engineering and the body of general education were already settled. Accordingly, our staff that had been separately arranged gets together in one campus and has hereby better and improved education and research environment. This establishment of Institute of Mathematics for Industry which can broaden the scope of mathematics will pioneer new horizon towards education. For the details of this institute, please visit http://imi.kyushu-u.ac.jp/.
We suppose that many people including expectant students will visit our website to receive various kinds of information. We, the Faculty of Mathematics, the Institute of Mathematics for Industry and the Graduate School of Mathematics, try to be attractive as educational institutions that conduct high level education based on top research of mathematics and mathematical science; therefore, all of the faculty members and staff will do their best to keep and enhance further the standard of our research and education.
