  1. Background

Salale University is one of the public higher education institutions in Ethiopia that was established in July 2015 G.C by the council of ministers following the demand of the community of North Shoa and its surrounding, and in line with the direction of the government as per the proclamation article /No.359/2008. It is located in Oromia region, North Shoa, Fitche town at a distance of 114 km from Addis Ababa. Currently, the university is offering about 30 programs clustered in 5 colleges namely: College of Health Sciences, College of Agriculture and Natural Resource, College of Business and Economics, College of Social Sciences and Humanities, and College of Natural Sciences. The Department of Mathematics, which was established in August 2017 G.C, is one of the academic programs in the College of Natural Sciences offering BSc. Degree in the regular, and summer- in-service programs and MSc. Degree in regular and extension (Weekend + Summer) programs. The activities of the department include but not limited to delivering common courses to students from various departments of the University, conducting research and providing community services. In all of the aforementioned and other related activities, the contribution of the department is significant at the university and also at national level.  In line with the national policy of higher education that focuses on promoting applied research in science and technology, the department launched postgraduate programs leading to MSc. in Mathematics in the academic year 2021 .C with streams of Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Analysis, Algebra, Analysis, Differential Equations, and Optimization.

 In general, the department is offering the following programs:

 BSc. Degree in Mathematics (Regular).

 MSc. Degree in Mathematics (Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Analysis, Algebra, Analysis, Differential Equations, and Optimization streams).

  1. Vision

The vision of the department is to become a Center of Excellence in teaching, learning and research, bring out the potential of students by providing quality teaching, increase global linkages by attracting foreign scholars and establishing collaborative research programs and to work for wellbeing of humankind through the study of Mathematical sciences.

  1. Mission

Mathematics is one of the main unifying subjects in our modern world. It plays a pivotal role in the development of science, technology, business, computer science and other related sciences including medicine.

5.2.      Physical facility

The physical facilities of the department are also reasonably suitable for academic work. Offices, text books and references fulfill the minimum requirements. Each academic staff has computer facility connected to the local area network and internet. The department also has one computer laboratory which serves both graduate and undergraduate students with 29 internet connected desktops. The department has its own Research Center for Computational Simulation which was inaugurated on Nov 30, 2021 G.C.

  1. Research Areas

Theme 1: Applied Mathematics

This theme is about application of Mathematics in real life and physical world; it deals with research works such as mathematical modeling, analysis and simulation of problems in biology, chemistry, fluid flow, diffusion processes, business and pattern formation in nonlinear stochastic differential equations; computational mathematics and coding theory; dynamical systems and differential equations; nonlinear analysis; theoretical/computational fluid dynamics; operations research, etc. This theme encompasses analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, optimization, control theory, algebra, operational research, dynamical systems, financial mathematics, mathematical modeling, combinatory and graph theory etc., which have their own applications in  real world problems and sciences such as engineering, agriculture, economics, medicine, finance, etc. In addition to its role in developing new mathematical theories, the theme deals with relevant applications and model.

Theme 2: Pure Mathematics

These research theme is all about knowledge generation; it focuses on theoretical research including (but not limited to); operator and fixed-point theories; the development, analysis and application of efficient and robust methods/algorithms for solving challenging problems arising in several mathematical and applied areas; real and functional analysis; boundary value problems/differential equations; numerical analysis and scientific computing; algebra, combinatorics and geometry.

Theme 3: Mathematics Education
