The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science was founded in 1993, but, mathematical sciences were developed in Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń from the very beginning of its existence, first, within departments, later, in the Institute of Mathematics – a part of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. In the 1960s a new specialization, a ‘numerical division‘, was established. It can be regarded as the beginning of the computer science studies in Toruń. The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, with its high level of scientific research and a number of world-class researchers, has always been awarded the highest grade in Polish evaluation of scientific units. Well-equipped laboratories, lecture halls, seminar rooms and the library providing access to the large collection of resources, together with the latest technologies and free wireless Internet access in the halls, form a modern infrastructure.
