Dear colleagues, alumni, students and IMEM applicants!
This year, our Institute celebrated its 19th anniversary, the story of its creation dates back to the XIX century, with the only university at that time in the south of Ukraine - Novorossiysk Imperial University, which trained specialists in the natural sciences
Institute of Mathematics, Economics and Mechanics at Odessa I.I. Mechnikov National University - the school that preserves the best traditions of classical university, on the one hand, and complements them with the modern approaches in the higher education training, both theoretical and practical direction, which enables our graduates to be competitive in the labor market.

In addition professors annually take part in Ukrainian and international conferences, seminars and "round" tables. University publishes textbooks, manuals, monographs prepared by IMEM faculty.
At the Institute much attention is paid to PhD students who are studying in various specialties. At IMEM there is a specialized council for PhD theses in mathematics (differential equations, calculus of variations and control theory, mathematical analysis, the mechanics of deformable bodies).
High level of training allows IMEM students to win prizes at Ukrainian and international competitions. Among them are: VIII International Olympiad in Mathematics (Prague), where student O. Metelichenko received the Grand Prix and the possibility of PhD studies in the UK for the first time in the history of Ukraine.

This year our students won the 4th place in the World Cup semifinals for sports programming ACM ICPC in the Southeast European region SEERC-2012 ACM ICPC. Significant results were obtained at Ukrainian Student Olympiad in mathematics (3 years in a row first place is achieved). IMEM students annually receive scholarships of the President of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, scholarships in various fields of mathematics – A.M. Lyapunov scholarship, S.Y. Witte scholarship, psychology - the N.N. Lange scholarship. Our students are always actively involved in student research conferences and seminars.
