The Department of Mathematics is one of the major departments at AL-Leith University College. The Department was established in conjunction with the establishment of the College in 1422/1423 H. Until the academic year 1430-1431 H., the Department was devoted only to females. However, as of the first semester of the academic year 1431-1432 H., a division for males was created to offer a four-year undergraduate program in mathematics. The Department’s plan focuses on the basic concepts and applications in the different branches of mathematics so that graduate may resume his/her graduate studies on the one hand, and play an outstanding role in research, development and work in mathematics-related scientific and industrial institutions on the other hand. The Department of Mathematics also offers mathematics courses for other academic departments.
The Department of Mathematics aims to provide the job market with qualified graduates who are distinguished by scientific and logical thinking as well as the scientific research skills that help them communicate and interact within the society in all fields of work. This aim is fulfilled through benefiting from developed countries and the local, regional and international successful expertise.
Al-Bayhaqi related the following Hadith as mentioned by Aisha bint Abi-Bakr and her Father: Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said “Allah loves that if any of you does a job, he does it with perfection.”
