The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) is an independent division of New York University (NYU) under the Faculty of Arts & Science that serves as a center for research and advanced training in computer science and mathematics. It is considered one of the leading and most prestigious mathematics schools and mathematical sciences research centers in the world.
The UCLA Department of Mathematics is by far the youngest of the top mathematics departments in the nation. In 2006, Terence Tao won the Fields Medal, described as the Nobel Prize of math. As of Fall 2016, it has 49 ladder faculty and 67 assistant adjunct professors, postdoctoral fellows, lecturers, and visiting faculty, encompassing major areas of both pure and applied mathematics. In 2007, the Department received the American Mathematical Society’s (AMS) Award for an Exemplary Program or Achievement in a Mathematics Department.
The Department of Mathematics at ETH Zurich is an internationally recognized reference point for mathematical research and teaching at the highest level. With its broad spectrum of pure and applied mathematics, the Department offers an ideal environment for scientists and students. With its long history of excellence, the Department of Mathematics conducts highest level research in most areas of pure and applied mathematics. It comprises a number of independent professorships, as well as the Seminar for Applied Mathematics (SAM), the Seminar for Statistics (SfS) and the Institute for Operations Research (IFOR).
Princeton University is a great place to do math. For the 2017-18 academic year, rhe department of Mathematics at Princeton University consists of 73 faculty members, 25 visitors and researchers, 79 graduate students, and 70 undergraduate majors. Mathematics is one of the most versatile majors at Princeton and students here have the opportunity to work with some of the best mathematicians in the world in a wide variety of fundamental areas of both pure and applied mathematics.
The Department of Mathematics at Berkeley is generally recognized as one of the broadest, liveliest, and most distinguished departments of mathematics in the world. With approximately 55 regular faculty members representing most of the major fields of current research, along with 25 to 30 post-doctoral scholars, 180 graduate students, over 800 undergraduate majors, one of the finest mathematics libraries in the nation, and situated in a favorable climate in one of America’s most exciting and cosmopolitan centers for mathematics research and teaching, Berkeley has become a favorite location for the study of mathematics by students and faculty from all over the world.
The Cambridge Mathematics course is often considered to be the most demanding undergraduate Mathematics course available in Britain and, correspondingly, one of the most rewarding. Since Sir Isaac Newton was Lucasian Professor (1669-96), mathematics teaching and research here have been enhanced by a string of brilliant mathematicians, including six Fields Medallists and even Nobel Prize winners. Most current Faculty members are leading international authorities on their subject. Our Faculty is also closely linked with the Isaac Newton Institute, which attracts specialists from all over the world to tackle outstanding problems in the mathematical sciences.
Mathematics is the engine behind Science in the 21st Century. Mathematics in Oxford embraces this power and diversity by combining its pure and applied mathematicians in one department and one building, ensuring collaborations both within and beyond Oxford.
Oxford has over 850 undergraduates, more than 350 masters and doctoral postgraduate students, and over 170 faculties, research fellows and postdoctoral researchers studying and working across all fields of mathematics from Number Theory to understanding the mechanics of the human brain. It has nurtured many celebrities in mathematics. For example, three Oxford mathematicians, Michael Atiyah, Daniel Quillen and Simon Donaldson, have won Fields Medals, often called the “Nobel Prize for mathematics”.
SUMO is the Stanford University Mathematical Organization. It is the by-students-for-students math club on campus. It host various events that are open to everyone: math majors and non-math majors, graduate and undergraduate.
Harvard is a large, highly residential research university. It operates several arts, cultural, and scientific museums, alongside the Harvard Library, which is the world’s largest academic and private library system, comprising 79 individual libraries with over 18 million volumes. Harvard’s alumni include eight U.S. presidents, several foreign heads of state. Moreover, there are 130 Nobel laureates have been affiliated as students, faculty, or staff.
MIT is a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU). The Institute is traditionally known for its research and education in the physical sciences and engineering, but more recently in biology, economics, linguistics, and management as well. MIT is often cited among the world’s best universities by various organizations.
As of 2017, 88 Nobel laureates, 52 National Medal of Science recipients, 65 Marshall Scholars, 45 Rhodes Scholars, 38 MacArthur Fellows, 34 astronauts, 21 Turing award winners, 16 Chief Scientists of the U.S. Air Force, and 6 Fields Medalists have been affiliated with MIT. The school has a strong entrepreneurial culture and the aggregated revenues of companies founded by MIT alumni would rank as the eleventh-largest economy in the world.
