The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stevens is a leader in the field of algebraic cryptography.

Indispensable to engineering and the sciences, mathematics plays a central role in academic life at Stevens and our department offers you the opportunity to explore this fascinating subject. 

In addition to being a leader in algebraic cryptography, our department has a strong research focus on group theory, including computational, combinatorial, and geometric group theory.  The Algebraic Cryptography Center is dedicated to investigating and developing the mathematical underpinnings of cryptography and cybersecurity. It regularly hosts visiting scholars from around the world and runs a weekly seminar that is open to the public. Other research strengths of the department include stochastic optimization, applied probability theory, and differential equations.
