School of Mathematics
The former Department of Mathematics of Jilin University was set up as a result of the nationwide readjustment and reorganization of universities and colleges in 1952. In 2001, the School of Mathematics of Jilin University was established from the former mathematics departments of the former Jilin University, the former Jilin University of Technology, the former Changchun University of Science and Technology, the former Norman Bethune University of Medical Science, and the former Changchun Institute of Posts and Telecommunications.
The School of Mathematics was one of the first Natural Science Basic Research and Teaching Personnel Training Bases, and in 2002, the School of Mathematics was recognized as an Excellent Training Base. In 2007, our Mathematics program was recognized as a National First-Class Key Discipline. The School of Mathematics now receives the support of the nationally funded Project 985 and the Project 211National Key Disciplines program. In 1993, the School of Mathematics jointly established the Key Laboratory of Symbolic Computation and Knowledge Engineering of the Ministry of Education with College of Computer Science and Technology.
There are six departments, four undergraduate programs, and we offer Masters and Ph.D. programs in Mathematics and Statistics. The School of Mathematics has more than 1600 students and 200 faculty members, including one double-position academic, one “National Renowned Teacher” award recipient, one “Distinguished Young Scholar of the National Science Foundation award recipient, two “National Outstanding Youth Scholars of the National Science Foundation,” and three of our professors are “Changbai Mountain Scholar” award recipients.
