The first head of department was academician prof.Yaroslav Stepanovych Pidstrygach. The department staff consisted of university lecturers as well as the Institute scientific workers. The necessity of such department was resulting from need for mathematicianspecialists that possessed the advanced usage of nearby natural sciences methods and methods of contemporary mathematics, could apply its to solving of modern scientific problems and technical tasks. At the time of founding the department had basic specialization "mathematical modelling of physicmechanical processes"vas a part of scientific industrial section of mechanicalmathematical faculty of speciality "mathematics". Since 1996 the specialization "Financial mathematics" was introduced at the department. The department graduates specialise in "Mathematical modelling" and "Financial mathematics". The scientific industrial section specialists training is coordinated by matematical modelling department.
