The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology brings together a unique mix of expertise in mathematics, statistics, computing science and space weather. Our mission is to conduct outstanding research and to provide quality education, whilst working closely with business and international partners.
Our research groups maintain worldwide reputations for theoretical work in a wide range of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), and seek collaborations that allow us to apply our understanding to aspects of economics, business, finance, computing, etc.
We offer undergraduate degree courses in our three key discipline areas including Information and Computing Science, Statistics and Applied Statistics, and Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. Many of them share a common first year, allowing the flexibility to switch between degrees. At postgraduate level, we offer Masters programs in Differential Equations and Its Application, Functional Analysis and Its Related Theory, Numerical Analysis and Computational Theory, Applied Probability and Statistics, Algebra and space weather, and PhD programs in Space Weather. Much of our research and teaching involves close links with economic, engineering, meteorology, medicine, etc. Internationally, we have teaching and research partnership arrangements with Universities across Europe and in America.
Staff and students
The School of Mathematics and Statistics, led by Professor Yong Jiang, is staffed by experts of mathematics, statistics, space weather, information and computing. The school has staffs over 80, including 77 full-time teachers, 17 professors and 26 associate professors.
About 800 undergraduate students are currently registered for BSc degrees involving three majors; a further 90 postgraduate students are registered for research, MSc and PhD degrees.
Teaching and learning
Teaching and learning provides leadership, service, and support in the development, implementation, and dissemination of research-based teaching an learning resources aligned with national learning standards. We strive to build strong and lasting partnerships that will support school districts in their preparation for educators and students in providing high quality instruction and to achieve high levels.
The school has a Mathematics Education Experiment Centre, Institute of Space Weather, Fluid Dynamics Research Institute and other institutions. In recent years, the school has undertaken a large number of research projects, including the national projects and others. The scientific researches have some impact in the international arena, such as being issued by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Norbert Gerbier-Mumm Award. The School and the National Satellite Meteorological Centre have extensive cooperation in the weather-disciplinary construction and space weather services.
