In 2010, the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computer Science merged to form the joint Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. With this merger, the Mathematical Institute with its centuries-old history and the young and growing Department of Computer Science were merged into a single organisational unit.
At the beginning of 2015, the department moved from its previous five locations to its new joint domicile at Spiegelgasse 1/5. At Spiegelgasse, the department has workplaces, seminar rooms, learning places for students, computer laboratories, and a library.
Currently the department has 16 professorships plus three SNFS professorships.
