Master of Sciences

The department has been running a Master of Sciences programme since the academic year 2013-14 with specialisation in two streams, viz., ‘Mathematics’ and ‘Mathematics and Computing.’

The objective of the M.Sc Mathematics program is to provide students with a strong theoretical background in mathematics for pursuing research in both pure and applied mathematics.

The M.Sc Mathematics and Computing program aims to produce students with a good-firm background in theoretical and applied mathematics, supplemented with the required computational skills. Students have the flexibility to pursue higher studies or orient themselves towards a career in the industry.

Salient features of the M.Sc program:

  • The first semester is common to both the streams.
  • Freedom to choose between two streams: Mathematics or Mathematics and Computing.
  • Streams based on the electives chosen in the 2nd–4th semesters.
  • Sufficient emphasis on building a firm foundational knowledge.
  • Exposure to research through mandatory project work for all students.
  • Students are free to pursue interests in both streams.
