Mathematical Engineering Department

The Department of Mathematics Engineering (DIM, in Spanish) develops mathematical research in pure and applied mathematics, addressing problems national importance.

The main areas of research that developed from within the DIM are: differential equations, discrete mathematics, mathematical mechanics, optimization, and probabilities. In addition, the DIM is responsible for the Civil Engineering Mathematics program created in 1965, and the Doctorate of Mathematical Modeling.

Many department members are involved in mathematical applications in the national and international production field through the Center for Mathematical Modeling (Centro de Modelamiento Matemático) of the same university which was founded in 2000.
