Message from the Department Head

- 2019/11/10

All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the most honorable among Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and all of his companions.

First of all, I would like to point out that mathematics is one of the most significant and oldest of all sciences, throughout time. It contributes effectively to the technological and technical development being witnessed in our time. It is the language of modern technology, from which all the other sciences derive their theories and laws. Mathematics offers effective mathematical methods in the fields of statistics, data, and decision-making; in issues of profit-making and narrowing down the scope of losses; in the areas of computer and linear programming, and data encryption; in the methods of seeking solutions to problems in various fields; and in modeling difficult problems that face any work sector, and finding optimal solutions for them.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the UQU Department of Mathematics at Jamoum University College, which we hope will gain your satisfaction, finding what is beneficial for you, and where we appreciate the important role that mathematics plays. Here, we harness all the potential provided by this country (may Allah bless it) to contribute to the development of the scientific and research level of our students at Umm Al-Qura University. This, in turn, will reflect positively on the progress of our dear homeland, according to the ambitious Saudi vision 2030.

This website aims at informing students about the Department of Mathematics, the study plans and courses it offers, the scientific research and research proposals conducted by the academic staff members, and the activities performed at the department. The website gives information about the importance of mathematics, the role it plays in technical and scientific development, and the services it can offer to the community.

The department currently offers the bachelor degree in mathematics, and we hope to launch the postgraduate studies program soon. The department supervises all mathematics courses that are offered at the different departments of the college. Moreover, the department is considered to be one of the most important scientific departments that serve the college and the university. Thus, the department is keen to have highly qualified academic staff members, and seeks to apply quality standards in the most perfect way. It aims at qualifying its students, upgrading their scientific level, using all efforts to graduate highly qualified students who are able to compete in all fields. The department also pays great attention to offering courses, motivating students to participate in student conferences held at the university level, and developing their scientific and research skills.

We hope that this website may be a window that displays the scientific and research development of the Department of Mathematics, and contribute in the efforts offered by the college and the university towards distinction and universality.

Finally, on behalf of myself and all my distinguished colleagues, the academic staff members of the Department of Mathematics, I praise the ongoing effort and unlimited cooperation demonstrated by His Excellency the Dean of the College and the vice deans to raise the status of our college among the other colleges of the university. I will be pleased to receive any notes or comments relating to the development of the website.
