Jyväskylä There are more of buildings designed by world famous architect Alvar Aalto than anywhere else in the world. Population 80000 –The biggest city in Central Finland and the 9th biggest in Finland Founded in 1837 Wood processing, manufacture of paper and paper machines, various sectors of information technology Students 21000 City of Thousand Lakes Main Events: - “Jyväskylän kesä” - The Finnish Leg of Rally World Championship: Neste Rally Finland

Department of Mathematical Information Technology In 2000 the amount of students was about 1100 in the Faculty of Information Technology and 55 per cent of them studied mathematical information technology. About 40 students are aiming at licentiate’s or doctor’s degrees on the moment. In the autumn 2000 the Faculty of Information Technology moved to Agora. The roots of the Department of Mathematical Information Technology are in the Laboratory of Scientific Computing, which is founded in 1992. In 1998 the Department of Mathematical Information Technology was founded at same time as the Faculty of Information Technology, which is only in kind in Finland.
