About Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the
Department of Mathematics

Scientific and industrial progress in recent years has made Mathematics one of the most important subjects of our time. Anyone these days who want to make progress within his day-to-day life has to become familiar with the language of Mathematics. More than its role as a mere language, Mathematics has now found an increasingly significant influence in many diverse fields, from management to medicine. An undergraduate degree in Mathematics will open the way to a future filled with wide opportunities for jobs and professions. Mathematics related professionals such as Actuarial Scientists, Accountants, and Statisticians are quite high in demand worldwide. Furthermore, Mathematics alone will enable a person to make a positive contribution to the society. Mathematics is, in addition to being the language of science in its own right, a way of logical thinking rather than rules and regulations.
