History

The Department of Mathematics originally offered a course in Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics as part of a Bachelor degree in Arts or Science. In 1964, the Department of Applied Mathematics was formed with Professor Archibald Brown as the inaugural Head of Applied Mathematics in the School of General Studies. As a result of recommendations made after a review of the mathematics departments in 1981, the Departments of Applied Mathematics and Pure Mathematics were amalgamated on 1 January 1982.
