Introduction to theDepartmentof Mathematicsat
theCollege of Science
The Department of Mathematics was founded in 2011, formerly known as the Mathematics Office of Basic Teaching and Research. The department now has four research offices: basic mathematics, applied mathematics, probability statistics and economic mathematics, and computational mathematics. After years of development, the Department of Mathematics has formed an education system that combines scientific research, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and has a first-class teaching and research team.
1. Discipline construction
In 2001 and 2006, the two obtained the authority of awarding master degrees for two secondary disciplines, "Applied Mathematics" and "Pure Mathematics", respectively.And then in January 2011, they were entitled to award master degrees for the first-level mathematics disciplines, covering five secondary disciplines, “pure mathematics, applied mathematics, computational mathematics, operational research and cybernetics, and theory of probability and mathematical statistics”. In 2015,during the fourth National discipline assessment, themathematics discipline was ranked the 7th among the participating universities in Shanghai and the first among the participating units that award no doctoral degrees in mathematics.
The department of mathematics has a well-structured and dynamic high-level teaching staff more than 60 members. Amongst them 12 are professors(including part-time professors), 18 are associate professors, and more than 40have doctorate degrees. Now there are 1 advanced individual in entrepreneurship education of China institutions of higher education, 1 outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship tutor of the Ministry of Education, 1 outstanding professor of Shanghai Oriental Scholars, 1 talented person in the new century of the Ministry of Education, 1 talented person of Shanghai Pujiang, 2 scholars of Shanghai Shuguang, 1 outstanding teacher in teaching of Shanghai and 2 winners of the Shanghai Yucai Award.
Recently, the Department of Mathematics has become a teaching and research base with certain influence at home and abroad. So far, more than 1,500 students have graduated from various study tracks, including300 master graduates.
The undergraduate program in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics founded in 2002 has been admitting students for 16 consecutive years, which is characterized by finance orientation and has an annual employment rate of over 96%. Furthermore, the employment rate of master graduates has even reached 100%. The students from mathematicshave also won multiple awards in the competition of MathematicsModeling of National College Students, Graduate Students, andAmerican College Students, and the honor of Shanghai Outstanding Master's Degree Thesis.
4. Scientific research
In recent years, faculty members from the department have published more than 400 academic papers in important journals, including more than 160 articles indexed SCI and more than 10 papers have high citations in ESI. We have presided over 30 projects of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, including 13 general projects.We have also successfully completed over 40 provincial and ministerial projects. Our faculty members have published 1 monograph in English and won 1 Shanghai Natural Science Award.
5. Teaching achievements
In recent years, the department faculty members have won the Shanghai Higher Education Teaching Achievement Award several times, including one outstanding award, 3 firstprizes, 1 secondprize, and 3 thirdprizes. More than 10 monographs/textbooks have been published. The three important basic courses: Advanced Mathematics, Probability Theoryand Mathematical Statistics, and Linear Algebra were rated as excellent courses in Shanghai; five courses such as Mathematics Analysis, Advanced Algebra, Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics were selected as the key construction courses by the Shanghai Education Commission.
Our faculty members actively advise college students for participating inthe innovation and entrepreneurship program and various competition activities. They won a number of special awards of “the Outstanding Guidance Team for Students Innovation and Entrepreneurship” of our university. Under their guidance, our undergraduate students participated in the Chinese Mathematics Competitions and have achieved good resultsfor many consecutive years. Specifically, the studentswon the first prize in Shanghai every year, and won the first prize twice and the third prize four times in the National Finals. Since 2006, our faculty members have organized undergraduate/graduate students to participate in the China Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modelingandthe China Graduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling,and have won the excellent organization award for 7 consecutive years.Our undergraduate students won8 national first prizes and 14 second prizes, and our graduate students won 11 first prizes and 139 second prizes.
