The M.Sc. Programme is motivated and based on the suggestions from the Govt. of India for the Development of Higher Mathematics for Applications, as a part of the 12th FYP of the planning commission. Mathematics is driven by the need for abstract and quantitative modeling and prediction in engineering and the sciences. New disciplines have emerged by employing sophisticated Mathematical models and are continuously joining established areas that use mathematical formalism in modeling and prediction. Nowadays many industries employ mathematical models and techniques in their research and product development. Judicious development and use of Mathematical models in industry and the sciences requires education of Mathematicians who are able to bring to bear mathematical methods and interact with experts in application areas outside of mathematics.
The Master's degree in Mathematics has a goal to respond to the above need. With this objective in mind, we are running successfully M.Sc. Mathematics Programme since 2016-2017. The M.Sc. Programme in Mathematics is of two years duration comprising four semesters. The Programme is designed to offer a complete, balanced combination of courses in Mathematics (including both theory and applications). The department has wider scope to offer variety of courses including but not limited to Mathematical Modelling, Scientific Computing, Fluid Dynamics, Numerical Techniques, Cryptography, Stochastic Control, Graph Theory, Fractal Geometry, Computational Topology/Geometry etc.
The educational objectives of the M.Sc. (Mathematics) program are to
PEO-1: carry out advanced research in their specific field of interest.
PEO-2: qualify for various careers in private companies, governmental institutions or in academia.
PEO-3: pursue collaboration with the public and private sector in the form of research, projects and consultancy.
At the end of the program, a student is expected to
PO-1: understand the pure/applied mathematical concepts.
PO-2: study and develop techniques to tackle real world problems.
PO-3: apply basic principles of mathematics in other areas of learning.
PO-4: identify, design, devise and apply appropriate computational techniques to model and solve physical/engineering problems.
During the program, a student will be able to
PSO-1: understand and analyze the mathematical concepts in the field of algebra, analysis, numerical analysis, optimization, differential equations and probability and statistics and their applications.
PSO-2: solve critical or complex problems by deep understanding of mathematics.
PSO-3: have necessary skills and expertise in the field of research and developments.
Entire two year M.Sc. Programme in Mathematics has been divided into four semesters.
First Year: In the 1st year (Two semesters), basic core courses are the main contents.
Second Year: 2nd year courses have been designed to accommodate more applicable elective courses and a project. Over all 5 elective courses is an attraction since this choice accommodates a series of 4 structured courses (if offered).
