*“Applied Mathematics is a blend of Mathematical Sciences and Specialized knowledge which describes professional specialty for practical problems’’*

**Overview**

The Applied Mathematics course is a combination of mathematical science, applications and knowledge. An opportunity to study Applied Mathematics will develop a professional specialty in an undergraduate to work on real world problems by formulating and studying mathematical models. It will pave the path to develop a successful career, well adapted to the present industrialized world and also will give an excellent opportunity for individuals to serve the society using their knowledge and skills. Mathematics improves a person’s logical thinking while skills in Applied Mathematics will enable him/her to face a practical situation successfully.

*Course structure*

Applied Mathematics is offered as one of the three subjects for B.Sc. (General) degree in permitted subject combinations for physical science students. It consists of compulsory and optional course units arranged to provide the required knowledge in main areas of Applied Mathematics such as Mechanics, Mathematical modeling, Dynamics, Numerical methods etc. The success of modern mathematical concepts, techniques and software had given rise to the involvement of knowledge in computational mathematics in practical applications of mathematics. The department offers a practical component along with the Applied Mathematics courses together with an access to a well-equipped computer laboratory.

*Career opportunities*

With the advancement of technology and development of various industries, a tendency to apply improved mathematical tools and techniques to gain significant results has cropped up. Moreover, new application areas are being discovered day by day which require the subject oriented knowledge to handle the application procedures. Thus, at present professionals with applied mathematical background and skills are at a high demand worldwide, especially in the fields of engineering, technical and industrial sectors and also in research institutes.
