Department of Mathematics


The Department of Mathematics offers two Masters programmes - M.Sc. in Mathematics and M.Sc. in Applied Statistics and Informatics. Both programmes offer students considerable freedom in the choice of courses in their second year with elective courses in pure and applied mathematics and statistics as options.


The M.Sc. Mathematics programme allows students to acquire a broad mathematical education, especially suitable for careers in research and teaching. More recently, graduating students have also been increasingly absorbed in the industrial and service sectors as the demand for mathematical skills rises.


The M.Sc. Applied Statistics and Informatics programme has been specially designed for students aspiring to professions that demand skills and techniques in Statistics and Computer Science. The course structure offers a unique blend of courses in computer science, statistics and mathematics. The programme has been highly successful in placing its graduating students in prestigious Indian and multinational companies.


 Students may also benefit from exposure to the active research pursued in many areas of mathematics and statistics in the department, and also from the individual and institutional contacts between the department and other educational, research and industrial organizations, both within and outside the country.


 In addition to the merit-cum-means and other scholarships given by the Institute, the top two students in the Applied Statistics and Informatics programme are given a scholarship of Rs. 1,200/- a month by Pfizer Limited. The top two students (on the basis of Cummulative Performance up to and including  the first three semesters) in the M.Sc. (Mathematics) as well as M.Sc. (Applied Statistics and Informatics) receive the Dr. P. V. Sukhatme Memorial Award that includes a cash prize and citation.
