The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of the largest UK mathematical science departments and is one of five Schools in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Queen Mary. The university has recently invested in a new foyer and entrance area for the Mathematical Sciences Building, with a Penrose tiling pattern wrapped around the outside of the building.
Queen Mary is one of London and the UK's leading research-focused universities, ranked 11th in the Guardian RAE2008 table. We are part of the internationally-renowned University of London and can be found in East London. As part of a university-wide strategic commitment to research of the highest quality, the School of Mathematical Sciences has embarked on a three-year programme of academic staff recruitment. We have a very strong research presence across the spectrum of Pure and Applied Mathematics and Statistics. The School also has large and popular undergraduate and graduate Schools.
A key aspect of the school is the way it is strongly integrated both academically and socially to the benefit of all members. It is a very busy School with a large number of regular seminar and workshop activities. The resulting research record output is strong and the School has demanding educational standards for its undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Queen Mary holds a university-level Bronze Award for the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in mathematics, science, engineering and technology in higher education and research.
The School of Mathematical Sciences was awarded its own department-level Athena Swan Bronze award in September 2013.
