The Master and PhD programs were also stablished in years 1994 and 2004, respectively. The Applied Mathematics Department accepted the first Master students in ‘Financial Mathematics’ in 2011. Also, the first Master students in ‘Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems’ were accepted in 2017.

Considering the importance of computer sciences, undergraduate program of Computer Science started in 2001, while the master and the Ph.D. programs were stablished in 2007 and 2012, respectively.

The Statistics section started in 2004 offering an undergraduate degree. In a plan to expand its activities, the section has been offering graduate programs for the Master of Science (MSc) in mathematical statistics and socioeconomic Statistics since 2007 and 2016, respectively.
