Academics Overview

The department offers three year Undergraduate (B.Sc.) in Mathematics and Ph.D. programs.

Any candidate pursuing the program can also pursue Foundation courses and Minors in other disciplines within School of Liberal Arts and Basic Sciences, thereby making this a well-rounded offering of Mathematics equally rich in knowledge of other branches.

The research areas of the Department include Differential Equations and Inclusions, Numerical Linear Algebra, Hydrodynamics Stability, Flow through Porous materials, Poroelastic and Viscoelastic media, Hydro-elasticity, Wave-structure Interaction Problems and Mathematical Control Theory.

The employment opportunities are also aplenty as this is one of those educational degrees that work in close concurrence with the major science disciplines. There are infinite opportunities for the candidate to work in tandem with the various disciplines of Engineering, Medicine, Aeronautical and Electronic streams as quantity analysts are sought after in almost every concurrent field of science.

Undergraduate Programs

The B.Sc Physics major program gives the students a solid foundation of concept and problem-solving ability with which they are able to solve real world problems by modeling it and design it with the application of new experimental techniques. The B.Sc in Physics with a minor in other program gives the students a solid foundation in skills like problem-solving, observation skills, numerical aptitude, practical thinking and reasoning ability.
