Queen Mary University of London has a long, proud and distinctive history built on four historic institutions, stretching back to 1785 and beyond. To learn more about how we came to be the institution we are today, please visit the History section of our main website.
The School of Mathematical Sciences as it is known today was formed in 1984, but our history can be traced back to the 1800s. Below we have put together a timeline of key moments and events in our history.
Thank you to everyone that helped build this historical timeline of Mathematics at Queen Mary. We have done our best to include key moments and events, but understand we may have missed some. This is very much a living timeline and if you would like to suggest a contribution, please get in touch.
