M.Sc (Mathematics and Scientific Computing)
M.Sc. (Mathematics and Scientific Computing) – 2 year Programme:
In the context of changing needs of the software industry, the Department is offering a Computer Oriented Mathematics course –
M.Sc. (Mathematics and Scientific Computing). This course is offered from the year 2001 onwards, with a judicious combination of essential Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Computer courses.
In addition to the regular class room instruction and laboratory course in each semester, seminar and project work are integral parts of both the courses. They inculcate a spirit of practical application of Mathematical Concepts and also instill enthusiasm for research activity. Special emphasis is laid on promoting team spirit and improving the oral communication skills of the students.
Admission to this programmes is through IIT Joint Admission Test for MSc (IIT JAM)
