The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science was founded in 1972 and is characterised by enthusiastic faculty members at a dynamic and diverse institute. The Department is commonly known by its Danish acronym IMADA.
IMADA’s research covers a broad area, is interdisciplinary and includes both pure and applied research. The department’s geometry group is part of a pioneering collaboration with particle physicists. A new area of focus at IMADA is numerical mathematical modeling, where the goal is to use mathematical modeling and simulation to provide scientific understanding. Based on IMADA’s research on efficient algorithms, a platform has been established for optimization in industry involving collaboration with public and private companies. IMADA’s research within algorithms contributes to the development of quality measures for online algorithms as well as to the unveiling of evolutionary relationships between groups of organisms. The department also houses the Center for Science and Mathematics Education, which together with regional partners develops courses and degree programmes for school teachers.
IMADA offers a wide range of degree programmes in mathematics, computer science and didactics:
- Bachelor's and Master's degrees in applied mathematics, computer science, mathematics and mathematics & economics
- Master’s degree in science education
