Mathematics – Philosophy, Objectives and Scope

Philosophy, Objectives and Scope

The aim of the Department is to offer programmes designed to impact a sound knowledge of the branches of Mathematics as well as in applicable Mathematics. The programmes help students to develop the necessary skill, intellectual, mental and moral training for a career in Mathematics and other related field.

The Department is inclined to producing B.Sc. degree holders that can compete favourably with any other B.Sc. Degree holder in Mathematics from any part of the globe, and can pursue higher degrees in Mathematical Sciences any where in the world. Recently many innovations have been in the programme to accommodate the fast growing demands in information technology, banking and oil industries.

As the “mother” and “language” of all sciences, the Department aims at adequately servicing the faculties of Engineering, physical Sciences, Pharmaceutical sciences, Medicals Sciences, Environmental Studies, Business Administration etc. Science the current trend in technology, engineering and life sciences emphasizes actual quantification; the programme of our department embraces application in all these areas of human Endeavour.

Recognizing the role of mathematics as a basic tool in the physical and engineering sciences, and the current developments in the social and life sciences which have now become increasingly quantitative, the mathematics undergraduate academic programme emphasizes the applications of theory and methods to real life and physical problems. It helps the student to establish an expertise in Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, or Industrial Mathematics. It also prepares him for graduate study in the mathematical sciences.
