What is Applied Mathematics?

Mathematics and computational science are utilized in almost every discipline of science, engineering, industry, and technology. Students wondering what kind of career they can have with a degree in applied mathematics should take a look at this brochure by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Mathematics form the three divisions of the Department of Mathematical Sciences in the Faculty of Science at Stellenbosch University. Applied Mathematics also has strong links with the Faculty of Engineering.

There are currently 14 academic members of staff and about 30 postgraduate students in the Division of Applied Mathematics. We are based on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors in the eastern wing of the General Engineering building (in Banghoek Road).

Current research:

Current research activities in the division can be divided broadly into the following categories:

  • Computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning
  • Fluid dynamics and modelling
  • Numerical analysis and scientific computing
  • Applied discrete mathematics
