Size and Shape of the Department

Our department features over 35 permanent, full time, members of academic staff

A high number of our academic staff members hold a rating of the National Research Foundation (NRF) and several of them are internationally recognised as leading experts in their respective fields.

Each year we teach over 5000 students from a wide variety of departments and faculties and about 50 postgraduate students are trained in our department.

Our outreach programs to thousands of high school students in the Western Cape (the UCT Mathematics Competition, the UCT Mathematical Circle, Olympiad training programmes and the quarterly magazine Mathematical Digest) provide opportunities for promising young mathematicians to discover their mathematical potential, and encourage them to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
