UTD Project Aims To Improve Equation for Math Class Placement
“Students coming to UT Dallas now have experienced a different type of education during the last two years than what incoming students experienced five years ago,” said Dr. Vladimir Dragovic, professor and head of mathematical sciences in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. “We need to study how the process of formation and learning — particularly in math — has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
UTD Adds New Claim to Fame as Center of Actuarial Excellence
UTD Adds New Claim to Fame as Center of Actuarial Excellence “This honor is outstanding evidence of the highest academic standards that have developed in the short lifespan of our program,” said Dr. Vladimir Dragovic, professor and department head of mathematical sciences. “This outcome reflects the hard work of the actuarial group and the flourishing atmosphere of support and mutual respect between diverse academic groups cultivated within the department. Together, mathematicians, statisticians, actuaries and data scientists built a unit without boundaries between us.”
Partnership Creates Equation for Stronger Math PhD Preparation
Partnership Creates Equation for Stronger Math PhD Preparation “We have built this joint infrastructure between two geographically distant universities with distinct student populations and resources, and we hope it will serve as a national model.”

Math, Computer Science Departments Add New Degree in Data Science
Math, Computer Science Departments Add New Degree in Data Science Dr. Vladimir Dragovic, the department head of mathematical sciences, described the interdisciplinary program as a role model for future cross-campus collaborations.

“The data science BS will be UT Dallas’ first Bachelor of Science program offered jointly from departments from two schools,” Dragovic said. “The curriculum is designed in a way that a student may choose to enter the job market or go to graduate school. There has already been substantial interest.”

Mathematical Journey That Began at Young Age Inspires Professor
Mathematical Journey That Began at Young Age Inspires Professor From the age of 9 or 10, Dr. Vladimir Dragovic knew he wanted to be a mathematician. His early commitment to his career goes hand in hand with his dedication to encouraging young people who are interested in science and math. Dragovic, who joined the UT Dallas faculty recently as a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, graduated from, and was later principal of, the prestigious Mathematical Gymnasium (high school) Belgrade, a special school for gifted and talented students of mathematics, physics and informatics located in his native Serbia. In its 40-year history, students from the school have won more than 400 medals at international science competitions, making it one of the top-ranked schools in the world for science and math education. “My experience running a school such as this, with recognized excellence, is something that I believe will contribute to the quality of education at UT Dallas,” Dragovic said.
