Master of Science in Mathematics - Specialization in *Pure Mathematics *Data Science

Intake: 50

  • Program CodeMSC-001
  • Duration 2 Years
  • Level Post Graduate Programmes
  • Department Department of Applied Sciences & Humanities
Mathematics is the science of number, quality and space, either as abstract concepts (pure mathematics) or as applied to other disciplines as physics or engineering (applied math). It is a science of structure, order and relation that has evolved from the elemental practices of counting, measuring and describing the shapes of things.

In today’s parlance mathematical application has emerged as the new and popular data science too. There is no domain of academic or professional inquiry where mathematics does not apply. Mathematics fins applications in engineering medicine, other sciences, social sciences, culinary sciences, humanities and even in languages and art forms. Its study and practice supports every possible function of life imaginable.

The two years master’s degree in Mathematics is based on the first year of general study and second year of specialization in either pure math or data science based on the students’ interest and future career plans. The subjects covered in this degree are Algebra, Analysis, Numerical Methods, Fundamentals of Computer and C Programming, Linear Algebra, Topology, Optimization Techniques, Discrete Mathematics, Finite Element Method, Multivariable Calculus, Algebric Geometry, Network Models, Fluid Mechanics, and Number Theory and Cryptography. The students proceeding to a pure mathematics specialisation in year two also study functional analysis, MATLAB, and mathematical methods; while those proceeding to data science specialization study database management system, data warehousing and data mining.

The lab work includes statistical analysis and C programming. Field work and internships are an integral part of the degree and group presentations, projects, dissertation, research and applicable innovations are encouraged and rewarded. The students also meet with industry experts, visit mathematical based organizations such as DRDO, TIFR Mumbai, IMSc Chennai etc.
