This contains compulsory and optional course units which are designed to provide required knowledge of main areas of Mathematics such as Algebra, Analysis, Calculus and so on. Further, due to the high demand for computational mathematics, the department has introduced a practical component to most of the Mathematics course units in the department with the students having access to a well-equipped computer laboratory. Also the department offers a basic mathematics course for the biological students. **

**Career opportunities**

**Mathematics has now found an increasingly significant influence in many diverse fields, from management to medicine. Mathematics related professionals are in high demand worldwide in various capacities in academic institutes, research institutes and engineering and technical sectors. **
