Mathematical education in Siberia began in 1917, when Tomsk State University established the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics, one of the four faculties listed in the Russian Charter of Imperial universities (1884). The Faculty opened four departments (of pure mathematics, theoretical and practical engineering, astronomy and geodesy, and organic physical chemistry). Two hundred students were admitted to the first year of the Faculty programme. In 1948, the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics was divided into the Faculty of Engineering and Mathematics, and the Faculty of Physics.
The FMM has contributed greatly to the development of mathematical studies and mathematical education in Siberia. For a long time, it had been the only faculty behind the Urals training specialists for mathematical departments of universities and research institutes.
At present, the Faculty staff includes 75 lecturers, 57 of them holding doctoral degrees; 16 Advanced Doctors of Sciences, 41 PhD holders, 1 corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Education; 2 Honoured Scientists of the RF; 32 Honoured Teachers of the RF higher professional education; 2 Academicians of the International Academy of Ecology and Human and Nature Safety; 1 corresponding member of the International Academy of Informatization.
Since 2011, the Faculty has offered undergraduate programs in three fields:
