B.Sc. (Hons.) Mathematics

The course aims to create a solid foundation for assimilation of mathematical concepts and structures and build mathematical skills like creative, logical and analytical thinking. Most of the courses in the syllabus are accompanied by the practical and software such as Mathematica is used to increase the understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts.

Career Options

Mathematics is a universal part of human culture. By studying mathematics, students develop
the ability to think creatively, critically, strategically, and logically. They learn to structure
and to organize, to carry out procedures flexibly and accurately, to process and communicate
information, and to enjoy intellectual challenge. The abilities

  •  to use logical thought,
  • to formulate a problem in a way which allows for computation and decision,
  • to make deductions from assumption,
  • to use advanced concepts,

are all enhanced by a mathematics degree course. With a mathematics degree, one should be
able to turn his/ her hand to finance, statistics, engineering, computers, actuarial profession,
teaching or accountancy with a success not possible to other graduates.
