B.Sc. Mathematics (Hons.)

SRM University-AP is one of the first Indian universities to introduce a four-year undergraduate programme in Mathematics. The aim of our curriculum is to provide one of the best undergraduate programmes in Mathematics in India. After successful completion of the B.Sc programme, students can directly take admission for the PhD programme in India and abroad.

The 4 year B.Sc Mathematics programme has strong foundational courses in maths including minor and open elective courses. From the sixth semester the programme offers specialisations in three disciplines:-


  • Pure Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Data Science and Industrial Mathematics

Programme Highlights

  • A wide spectrum of electives (including four advanced discipline-specific electives)
  • An undergraduate thesis project - Will solidify students’ mathematical skills and enable them to secure admissions to top-quality graduate schools in the US and Europe
  • Special care and supervision from faculty for each undergraduate thesis
  • The well-designed curriculum makes students confident of appearing for national and international level maths competitive exams (e.g., GRE, CSIR NET, NBHM, GATE, JAM, TIFR, ISI, CMI etc.)
  • Data Science and Industrial Mathematics students will be very well-trained for the industry

Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

  • Offer foundational and advanced courses in undergraduate mathematics by active researchers in the field.
  • Prepare students to pursue higher mathematics and conduct research.
  • Develop competencies to apply mathematical knowledge in practical problems, which will help them to shine in their chosen fields, including Education, IT, Banking, etc

Programme Specific Outcomes (PSO)

  • Express mathematical ideas in the formal language of mathematics.
  • Construct a mathematical proof with analytical thinking, following logical rules of inference.
  • Extrapolate, deduce, formulate, and solve complex mathematical problems with available information.

Programme Outcomes (PO)

Capable of demonstrating comprehensive knowledge and understanding of one or more disciplines that form a part of an undergraduate programme of study.

Ability to evaluate the reliability and relevance of evidence; Capacity to extrapolate from what one has learned and apply their competencies to solve different kinds of non-familiar problems, rather than replicate curriculum content knowledge; and apply one’s learning to real-life situations.

Capability to apply analytic thought to a body of knowledge; analyse and evaluate evidence, arguments, claims, and beliefs based on empirical evidence; identify relevant assumptions or implications; formulate coherent arguments; critically evaluate practices, policies and theories by following a scientific approach to knowledge development. Critical sensibility to lived experiences, with self-awareness and reflexivity of both self and society.

Ability to analyse, interpret and draw conclusions from quantitative/qualitative data and evaluate ideas, evidence and experiences from an open-minded and reasoned perspective pertaining to incorporating in a system.
