The Department of Mathematics was established along with the founding of the University of Patras in 1966.

The Department offers a range of courses including both classical and modern mathematical methods and theories so that its graduates are highly skilled and broadly trained scientists who are in a position to not only cultivate and use their mathematical knowledge but also to recognize its applicability in engineering, natural sciences, economics and social sciences. The principal aim of the Department is to promote mathematics through research and teaching so that its graduates have a spherical view of the subject and its numerous applications. We offer core courses covering a broad spectrum of mathematics and also specialized courses in Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Informatics, Statistics, Mathematics Education, Physics and Economics which allow our graduates to be cognizant of the modern aspects of the science of mathematics.

To support its research activities, the department has instituted two programs of postgraduate studies awarding Master's degrees in (i) “Theoretical and Applied Mathematics” and (ii) in “Computational and Statistical Data Analysis”.

Developing its connections with other European Universities, the Department has been participating in the Erasmus+ Program. Under the auspices of this program, students and faculty members have visited universities such as Moscow State University, Masaryk University, Universita del Salento, Loughborough University, Universidad de Extremadura, Univerita degli Studi di Torino, University of Twente. We have also hosted students and faculty from a number of European Universities.
